Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 30 year old male. I have frequent urination, but only in the daytime. I take medications for IBS, Libotryp DS, Lopamide, and Hostacycline 500.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your post.

Frequent urination can be caused by UTI (urinary tract infection), raised blood sugar (diabetes), excess water intake during daytime and enlarged prostate (BHP).

You will need a urine examination, blood glucose and an ultrasonogram of the pelvis to look for prostate enlargement.

Meanwhile, instead of Tetracycline for IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), I would suggest Rifaximin 400 mg twice daily.

Avoid non-vegetarian foods for a while in case you consume them.
