My 93-year-old dad has urinary frequency at night to the point that his sleep is severely disturbed. Once in a while, he sleeps fairly well, but not most nights. He is being followed by a urologist & has been prescribed all the usual meds without success. We've tried taking them in the daytime & when that doesn't work. We switch to night time. The most recent one is oxybutinin which he has been taking at night & he swears it makes things worse. I've tried explaining that these drugs take weeks to show any effect, but he is too impatient. To his credit, he has given it his best shot, but still no positive results. It's driving me crazy! He saw the urologist September & I went with him. I get a feeling the urologist is reluctant to do any procedures due to Dad's age & I agree with that. He will be seen again in March.
Anyone else dealt with this? I'm tired of hearing about his plumbing problems.
