Frequent Trips to the Bathroom During the Night?

If you are being woken up at least twice during the night because you have to urinate, talk to your doctor to find out if you have nocturnal polyuria (NP) or if there is something else going on. NP can be caused by an over-active bladder (OAB) or can affect men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). However, the main cause of night time trips to urinate is due to nocturnal polyuria which causes your kidneys to release too much water at night so your bladder fills quickly and you find yourself waking up.

How Can Your Doctor Help?

If your doctor diagnoses you with NP, you may be prescribed Nocdurna (Desmopressin Acetate). This is a sublingual tablet you simply place under your tongue 1 hour before bed and allow it to dissolve on its own without taking water. Nocdurna imitates a certain hormone in your body called vasopressin which normally helps your kidneys to reduce its water production, but you may not have enough of this hormone so your kidneys release too much fluid and causes your bladder to fill faster.

Lifestyle Habits That Can Contribute to Nocturia

By changing a few actions before bedtime, you may be able to avoid the need to urinate through the night and be able to get a full 8 hours sleep. Do not drink anything, especially alcohol or coffee, a couple of hours before bed, change the timing of some of your meds that may include diuretics, Lithium, Propoxyphene, Phenytoin, Methoxyflurane, and cardiac glycosides. Sometimes, if wake in the night, you may decide to go to the bathroom whether you have to go or not…stop doing this as it can condition your body to wake up.

Before Taking Nocdurna

Tell your doctor about other medical conditions and allergies you have and provide a list of all current OTC and Rx drugs you are taking or using to establish whether Nocdurna will benefit you. If you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding, you may need to wait until baby is born and can take a bottle before you will be prescribed Nocdurna.

Nocdurna Precautions

You will need to undergo blood tests to check your serum sodium before and during treatment as Nocdurna can cause hyponatremia. This condition indicates your sodium concentration is low so the water level in your body rises and causes cells in your body to swell.
