    Hi: This may be my first post. Correct me if I've placed it in the wrong place. I sleep for 3 hrs then wake up to go to the bathroom, then can't get back to sleep. So I take 1 zolpedem to get to sleep, then another (or 2 xanax) to get back to sleep. Also there is sometimes a little bladder burning. Does anyone know anything I can do to mitigate the middle of the night peeing or the burning? tks, maxsarv

    You chose the right place to post – so don't worry about that!

    Getting up during the night to pee sometimes affects me, too. Normally I am OK getting back to sleep but if something is on my mind my brain will go into overdrive again and I'll struggle to get back to sleep. I find that if I drink anything within about 3 hours of going to bed, I'll be up during the night. Therefore, I avoid all liquids for quite a while before I hit the sack.

    As for the bladder burning; you should probably speak with your doctor about that.

    i agree you should speak to your doctor about the bladder burning. you also sound like you might be suffering from adrenal fatigue. that can cause poor sleeping patterns and frequent urination. however, the best thing would really be to get a clinical diagnosis by a doctor. i wouldn't want to speculate.

    Very helpful comments – thanks. I hadn't made the connection to adrenals. Maxsarv

    Just read this, I also have to go several times a night but I put this down to the fact that I am still feeding my son and I still need a drink at night. But I find it hard to get back to sleep afterwards especially if I have been in a really deep sleep.
