6 years ago I had an operation for the removal of a non invasive tumour from my bladder.This was followed by a 3 year course of BCG treatment which cystology tests, to date, has shown to be successful.However, I am still plagued by having to get up in the night to go to the toilet and this is now occurring 3/4 times a night and resulting in tiredness due to loss of sleep.During the day however, my toilet breaks are under control and average one every 4 hours.
Have you any advice to give me as to how best I can tackle the nocturnal problem?

Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.

I think that one of the following options should be considered in your case to help with your problem:

  1. oxybutynin (Ditropan XL),
  2. tolterodine (Detrol),
  3. darifenacin (Enablex),
  4. fesoterodine (Toviaz),
  5. solifenacin (Vesicare)
  6. trospium (Sanctura).
  7. Mirabegron (Myrbetriq).

These medications relax the bladder muscle and can increase the amount of urine your bladder can hold.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.

I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end on the top right hand corner as that is the only way we, the experts, are credited on here for helping you out.
