Will I ever be able to sleep through the night again?

8 months ago

I have just been diagnosed with OAB. I also live with endometriosis so double trouble when I get my period. My biggest symptom for OAB is waking up at night with the urge to go and I can't fall back asleep unless I go. This has been happening atleast 8 times a night sometimes more sometimes less and it's really been effecting my mental health.

I have been prescribed oxybutunin and it's been less than a week so I haven't really noticed much of a change over the last week quite yet. But I am hopeful.

I would love to hear how others manage at night with their sleep and urges.
