Avoid liquids before bedtime

This is the most effective approach that you can try to lessen your visit to the bathroom in the middle of the night. About 3 to 4 hours before bedtime make sure not to consume any liquid that might trigger urination.


Stick to bladder-friendly liquids

Certain beverages are known to stimulate an overactive bladder, these are caffeinated and alcoholic beverages. They are also known as diuretics which means that drinking them causes the body to produce more urine which will cause the urge to jolt you up from your sleep to go to the bathroom.

Double-up before bedtime

Before going to bed, empty your bladder twice, you might also want to do this as a routine. This trick can be helpful if you have an overactive bladder that keeps you up at night.

Elevate your legs

Elevating the day can help lessen the swelling of your bladder especially if you have edema due to excess liquid. Aside from that, naps can help if you have nocturia, so when you’re taking naps, make sure to keep your legs up.

Consider medication

Lastly, if any of this still doesn’t work for you, then you might want to consider seeking help from a professional and ask for the appropriate medication. This is also recommended if you have a urinary tract infection.
