Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
Some nights I awaken with need to urinate, every 1-2 hours. Occasionally, only 1x for entire night. Generally 204 times per night. Reasonable flow, seems to empty, no pain or difficulty "starting", however, I did have starting difficulty before using cardura (doxazosin). Rarely have "dribbling". I take all HBP meds in the evening, as well as some vitamins.
