Frequent urination over the counter medication

Common Questions and Answers about Frequent urination over the counter medication


Avatar n tn But, I would like to know if there is an over the counter medicine. I only get the urgency after a little stress. It stops after 10 hours or so on it's own. But, a cheaper "as needed" OTC medicine would sure be something I am interested in.
Avatar m tn urinary tract infection, interstitial cystitis, intake of diuretics and other medications, radiation therapy or bladder dysfunction. It would really help if you consult with the urologist for further evaluation and management. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn if it's just an irritation of the bladder wall lining this will calm it down and it is over the counter now...I would also chill out on the masturbation...because this causes the muscles of the pelvic floor to contract and this could be pelvic floor dysfunction so figure out ways to relax the pelvic floor not make it contract and see how you feel...Kegals would be the exact opposite of what you want if it is's all about relaxing not contracting the muscles of the pf...
Avatar f tn The burning during urination could be a urinary tract infection. There's really no over the counter medication to clear this up so it's best that you see your Dr. They will most likely take a urine sample and check for bacteria. If it does show up you will be given medication. I do hope you and your boyfriend are using some form of birth control or you could become pregnant.
Avatar n tn When I have symptoms, I take Uristat, an over the counter medicine for the UTI symptoms. They go away for a few weeks or a month. But at least I am not taking the antibiotics all the time now. That worried me becasue you do not want to get immune to the antibiotics. So maybe try the Uristat instead of the Cipro next time. I would LOVE to find the answer to this problem too.
Avatar m tn hi kindly help me, from last 3-4 days i am feeling buring while urination and also i have to go very frequent for urination almost every 1 -2 hour and every time feelin buring(pain) while urination..
Avatar n tn Without knowing your medical history, I can't advise you on taking any over the counter (OTC) medication. Have you tried any ice or heat to the areas that hurt? If the pain is that bad, and you need to contact the doctor anyway to find out your diagnosis, I would also let him/her know about your pain in your arms and legs. I will await your reply to my above questions. I hope you begin to feel better.
Avatar n tn Sorry I didn't reply. I was using this site mostly for Mood Tracker and I just took a long (very) long break when I found out I had Prostate Cancer. Long story short. When I had difficulty in urinating bad enough that I needed to cath my GP started doing more frequent PSAs. They started going higher (Nothing huge in numbers - just changing quickly) so I had the before mentioned Biopsy and it came back CANCER. Which the Urologist thought was going to make me flip out.
Avatar n tn Fifth, and likely unrelated, but I'll mention it anyway, I've had a horrible itch on my legs and sometimes other parts of my body. I've tried over-the-counter creams but nothing seems to work, my legs are covered in scabs from where i have literally itched the skin away. This has been going on for about a year and a half.
Avatar n tn (You did not mention that your a type 2 diabetic) Metformin is a great drug but has many potential interactions with other medication, herbal supplements, and over the counter products. I want you to pay close attention to the following safety comments that they put in their own literature (Pub Med Health) and count how many of the side effects listed match your complaints: "You may experience hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) while you are taking this medication.
Avatar n tn I'm playing phone tag with the doctor now but wanted to know if I was taking AZO over the counter medication, if this could skew the results of both the urinanalysis and the other tests. Will this OTC affect any results of my testing? I'm sure I should have made the dr aware I had been taking it pretty regularly for about two weeks. Thank you for your help in advance.
147426 tn?1317269232 Around home it is not a big problem because I can hold onto the wall, a kid, the counter, washer, dryer.....anything within my reach. I hope the PT sessions with give my MS doctor a clearer picture of what is going on. When I first started having problems several years ago I knew my past history of panic attacks would come back to haunt me. It has not been as bad as I had feared but it is still in the back of my mind.
Avatar n tn I'm a Pharmacy Technician student, and an active birth control user. (Loestrin 24 for irregular cycles due to PCOS) Take this from the person behind the counter handing you the medication: Read the PPI. (Product Package Insert) It's there to help you, not get thrown in the garbage with the white paper pharmacy bag. Also, remember, everyone is different and sometimes becoming pregnant was not a lack of information rather than a lack of taking the right percautions.
Avatar n tn No, you need to see a physician and have this evaluated so you can be treated properly. There are over the counter test strips for UTI's, but they are limited--you will still need to go and give a correctly obtained sample to identify the organism and get the proper antibiotic.
Avatar m tn There is also pain present when I press on it and rub my fingers over it to feel the bump. The swelling is not visible on the skin but when I rub my fingers over the area I can feel the swelling/bump. I think it is like you said the inflammation of the cartilage connecting the ribs to the sternal region. From looking at skeletal diagrams on the internet it looks to be in that area. Regards, Devon.
Avatar m tn Using the best care is the first class method for prevention of symptoms. Many types of products are available over the counter. Similarly, you can try online stores if you wish to buy high-quality products discreetly. Commonly used products are diapers, pads, liners, and bedspreads to prevent the bed-wetting symptoms. These products are easy to use and you can select washable products for the economy.
Avatar n tn Then at 35 days I test for both HSV 1 and 2, everything was negative. How confortable should I be with my results? Also I was taking some over the counter medication for frequent urination problems when I took the Chlamydia and Ghonorea test, would this affect the test?
975514 tn?1325001538 Wasn't until the Rhumetoligist ruled out MS, that I was told I had Fibromyalgia, roungly 10 years ago. The only releif I can suggest is stay active, the pain meds do nothing but mask over the discomfort. It you belong to a spa or the Y, go with water areobics. The movement gets the joints and tendons active and the warm water seems to ease the discomfort. Also, try deep breathing exercises and learn how to control your pain.
Avatar f tn Is this something serious or could I possibly treat it with over the counter medication before going to the doctor?
Avatar n tn Frequent urination isn't only a symptom of pregnancy. Did you get your period this month? Is it even due yet? The chances of pregnancy if you're having protected sex are only 1% or less, so I'd say the odd of you being pregnant are slim to none.
145992 tn?1341348674 He went through the garbage and ate some bad, raw meat that we threw out and that's when all of a sudden he had the frequent urination. I feared a parasite might have been the cause but the fact that he began to go through the garbage before that shows the behavioral change during that time. So it doesn't correlate with one another. I will try to get a blood work-up early next week.
Avatar n tn Good luck...and even if it isnt try eating small meals spread out the day and see if you can get an over the counter sugar monitor and check your sugar during one of these "attacks". We also cut out most white foods and eat wheat instead...if it is diabetes there are lots of things u can do to improve the symptoms,other than and including medication if your doctor prescribes it.Exercise,eating right and making better choices in foods etc.Keep us updated and try to worry too much!
Avatar n tn Although obviously at work it is difficult, i find that inhaling with herbal oils (put a few drops in hot water, place a towel over your head over the bowl,) baths, massage and cutting wheat out of my diet helps immensely to sooth these symptoms. Hope this was some help to you.
1192490 tn?1264866790 Along with it you can try over the counter antacids. However I would recommend you see a doctor and take medication under a doctor’s supervision. Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, smoking, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. If this does not help, then it could be anemia, hypothyroidism, diabetes or even a liver problem. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Avatar m tn I had an exposure( protected oral and vaginal Intercourse with prostitute) in last week of december 2013 and and soon after two or three days i had developed itching and wrinkles and very small white spots on penis head but no pain along with frequent urination(i slept after masterbating without properly cleaning my penis). i applied over the counter anti fungal cream and after 2 or 3 days the penis head was clean and everything becomes normal.
Avatar m tn You are right in that being anaemic has no relevance to the frequent urination. I trust you are taking iron and folic acid (helps absorb the iron) and eating foods containing iron to boost your levels up. Don't drink tea when taking iron supplements or milk products as this hampers the absorption of the iron. If your prostate glad has suddenly got enlarged, this can cause frequent urination.
Avatar m tn I went back and tested NEGATIVE for a UTI although the over the counter UTI test I took came back positive... My doctor saw in my file that I had mentioned to my gyno about a year ago that the inside of my vagina burns after sex. Now keep in mind that the burning after sex only started after I used the NuvaRIng for birth control.. I feel like that might have done something to me because I was with my partner long before I used the nuvaring and everything was fine.
