Hi there
Is there anyone that could help me with my overactive bladder?
I get up usually every 3/4 hours in the night to go to the toilet...
Which is leaving me very tired and irritable in the day as I know I am not getting enough sleep because of this..
Hoping someone can maybe advise or help me in some way
I am 60 years old through the menopause...
Thank you in this matter

The first thing to do is a bladder diary to see how much urine you are producing overnight - this will help rule out a condition called nocturnal polyuria (excessive production of urine overnight). The treatment for this is different to the treatment for overactive bladder. It is essential to make the correct diagnosis first before a treatment plan can be formulated.
