How many times you get up at night to pee?
This is a poll to determine how many times you get up at night to pee since started CPAP therapy
Please add a comment how was it pre-CPAP and has it improved since starting CPAP therapy.

Before CPAP, 2 to 3 times per night. With CPAP, 0. Who knew...

Before CPAP it was several times per night. Now it probably averages somewhere between zero and one. It was the first noticable benefit of CPAP therapy.

mosly zero, but sometimes one. used to be one every night. for those that don't know, when you stop breathing the heart rate goes up. when the heart rate goes up so does the activity in the organs. with more organ activity urine is produced and the need to pee is felt.

Used to get up more often, but now, zero for the most part (on average).

RE: How many times you get up at night to pee?
Ditto on the responses. Before cpap I got up several times. I also drank more water because I had such dry mouth from mouth breathing. The dry mouth and events would wake me up, I would go to the bathroom, come back and drink half a cup of water to cure the dry mouth. A few hours later the whole process would begin again. Since cpap I usually don't get up to go the bathroom at all and I no longer drink water during the night even if I do wake up. I love that humidifier attached to my machine.

I'm with everybody else. Before CPAP 2 - 3 times a night. I thought that I was old man before my time. I even thought that there may have been a more serious medical problem. However, after CPAP, trips to the washroom = 0 unless some unusual heavy drinking circumstance.

RE: How many times you get up at night to pee?
I don't remember a time before CPAP. With CPAP I probably got up once at night. After I had my prostrate removed, I seldom get up at night to pee, unless the wine was particularly good.

Before CPAP, about every 2-3 hours, sometimes more frequently.

Since CPAP....usually none, sometimes one if I had a lot of fluid in the evening...or if I'm long sleeping....
