Hello Martha,

As I said earlier (in my last response to you), I don't have the problem of excessive urinating; however, I know it is not unusual for lots of people.  

I would avoid drinking anything a couple of hours before you go to bed.  When you do urinate, make sure your bladder is completely empty.  After sex, empty your bladder right away.  

Make an appointment with your Neurologist asap.  Tell him/her you want a medication that will help you with this issue.  I know there are several of them available with a Doctor's prescription.  

Also, avoid salty foods.  They make you retain water and then eventually urinate.  

I live in Sacramento, California.  

Take care of you!
