I cannot go without them (unless my bladder is full to capacity) and have no sensation in my bladder at all. The functional problem I am having with the catheter is that instead of the urine coming out...

PTSD medication

I have been prescribed a medication called Prazosin for PTSD. (Apparently it is normally used for high blood pressure). Have been on it for a couple of months at very low dose and the intention was to gradually increase it. The problem now is that it has become unavailable in all my local pharmacies...
