Hello doctor,

I have a problem of urine dripping for two to three minutes after I urinate. Also, even if I do not have an urge to urinate, I end up passing large amounts of urine. I visited a doctor and he ordered some tests, the results of which I have attached. After seeing the report, the doctor said that my bladder is overstretched, and gave me tablet Terazosin 2 mg for six months and advised me not to drink a lot of water. I have been taking this tablet for the last one and a half months, but there is no improvement. What medicines should I take for these issues?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your query and gone through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • You do have an overstretched bladder. It is as a result of your habit of holding urine for too long.
  • I suggest the following:
  1. Restrict fluid intake, especially at bedtime.
  2. Empty your bladder regularly every two to three hours even if you do not have the urge to urinate.
  3. Take tablet Urotone (Bethanechol), one tablet thrice a day for a month.
  4. Continue with Terazosin.

Regards.
