Mr Scott, I can see that you are embarrassed about what happened.
I understand your distress, but your symptoms are quite common and very treatable. Do you feel any pain at all when you urinate? Or notice any blood?
Do you ever get a sudden, strong urge to urinate and sometimes donít make it to the toilet on time?
Do you always recognise the need to go to the toilet?
What about when you cough, sneeze, get up out of a chair or lift something heavy. Do you ever experience bladder control problems in any of these circumstances?
Have you taken any other prescription medications, antihistamines, decongestants or cold and flu tablets recently?
What about any over-the-counter medications, vitamins or herbal remedies?
Yes, Iím embarrassed about the dribbling and needing to go so often, but losing control of my bladder, that was the worst. I couldnít hide it from anyone and I was just humiliated.
No, I donít get a sudden urge. Itís just that I often feel like Iíve got a full bladder, so I need to go alot. If I wait too long I canít hold on, so sometimes I donít make it to the toilet on time.
Yes, thatís no problem.
No, those things donít seem to make any difference.
No, nothing at all.
Some medications, particularly sedatives, antidepressants, heart medications, blood pressure medications, antihistamines and cold tablets, can precipitate incontinence.
No, nothing else.
High doses of vitamin C and vitamin B12 can cause polyuria.
