when do you have the most trouble with incontinence?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
During the night. I get awake about 4 a.m., urinate and go back to sleep. It is this time 4 a.m. until 8 a.m. when I get up that I urinated in my depense brief.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 11 months ago.

Okay. I would take it about 1-2 hours before bed

not only will this ensure max effect at night, it will cut down on side effects

that is when I would take it
