Hi doctor,

I am a 37 year old male. I have urination problem for the last six months. There is no urine build up in the morning hours. I am voiding only a small quantity of deep yellow colored concentrated urine with no pressure in the morning. After 2 hours of taking tea and water, I urinate frequently. My sleep also gets disturbed due to frequent urination. My ultrasound, urine test and blood test were normal.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Most of your symptoms are normal. If bothered by frequent urination during sleep, then I suggest tablet Tolterodine 2 mg and tablet Tamsulosin 0.2 mg before going to bed for 14 days.
  • Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take treatment with consent.

Hi doctor,

Please check my ultrasound.



Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • As expected, your ultrasound report is normal (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It is normal to pass more urine after water and tea intake.
  • Do you feel any change in your symptoms after taking Tolterodine and Tamsulosin?
  • Many people when in bed and have difficulty or delayed onset of sleep; then they might get up multiple times to pass urine. It is a counter protective mechanism to relieve stress in mind.

Treatment plan:

Tamsulosin 0.2 mg and Tolterodine 2 mg bedtime.

Preventive measures:

Avoid holding urine for a long time.
