Hi doctor,

I am going to have a long journey. Can I take a salt tablet to prevent urination during the night? If so, please suggest any tablet.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Why do you want to hold urine? Do you travel frequently?
  • I suggest tablet Tolterodine 4 mg at the start of the travel and tablet or nasal spray Minirin (Desmopressin). Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take medicine with consent.
  • Still, I would like to know more about your requirement and usual urinary schedule.

Hello doctor,

I am fine, and my urinary schedule is normal. I have 11-hour continuous bus journey. So, is it safe to take Tolterodine?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Keep Tolterodine with you if you feel you need to hold urine beyond usual stoppage of buses. You can take Tolterodine 4 mg if the need arises and it is safe.
  • Your fellow passenger's ability to hold urine is usually like yours but lesser in older people. Buses usually stop over for travellers to void.
