Decreased urine output

Despite taking a daily diuretic, I have slowed considerably for about 1 1/2 yrs on urine output. Have talked about it to GP and cardiologist, yet no one seems to be concerned. This is very unusual for me. Normally, after taking the diuretic in AM, the flood gates open for the next few hrs. It is no longer the case. Frequently, I find it difficult to begin releasing any urine even though I have the urge. This just doesn't seem to be in any way normal for me. Other times, I experience incontinence since a stroke 7 yrs. ago. Is there any reason to be concerned?
Thank you. NParker

I don't think you need to be concerned about the urine volume after the tablet; these tablets are firstly aimed to reduce excess water and salt in your body, and then keep their levels suitable once the excess is gone. The fact that you do not make much urine in response probably means you have got suitable amounts of water and salt in your body (no excess to get rid of).
The urgency and difficulty getting started may be because of the stroke; if they are a big problem, your GP can review the situation.
