Recently, I took some medicine because I got a cold. And thank God, I can sleep all night without peeing. I remember you have discussed this issue (peeing at night) before, but I can't find the post now. Can you please tell me what kind of drug you take to avoid this problem?

My ataxia is in my legs and getting up to pee at night would end up causing me to be awake for hours after peeing, getting out of bed and using the walker to go to the bathroom takes a lot of effort. My solution is to keep a urinal bedside. I can pee with out getting out of bed and go back to sleep. I’ve had my ataxia 5 years now, I’m 58, and I’ve been doing this for the past 6 months. It’s great.
