Living with Nocturia

If you believe you are suffering from nocturia, these tips may help:

  • Drink your normal amount of liquid but do so earlier in the day. 
  • Cut down on any drinks in the last two hours before you go to bed - especially alcohol, coffee or tea as these stimulate urine production. 
  • Keep a diary of how much you drink, what you drink, and when. This may be helpful in identifying situations which may make the nocturia worse.

While there is limited scientific research and no proof of their effectiveness, some people believe that homeopathic medicines, hypnosis or acupuncture can be beneficial. Be sure to seek advice from a trained practitioner.
