Waking up at night to use the restroom? You may have Nocturia.

The EQUINOC Study

This study is looking to see if the investigational medication can help cut down on frquent night-time bathroom use, and reduce the impact that nocturia has on sleep and daily life.

What is the EQUINOC Study?

Men with BPH (Enlarged Prostate) often report that Nocturia (need to wake and pass urine at night) can be one of the most bothersome symptoms that they experience as a result of their condition. Many men adapt their lifestyle to help reduce the number of times that they wake up to use the bathroom. However, this approach may not always work.

The Medication

This new medication is in the form of a pill that is taken each night before bedtime and is designed to slow down how much urine the body makes at night. It is hoped that it will reduce the number of times that men wake up to use the bathroom.

Prostate gland enlargement is a common condition as men get older. Also called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostatic hypertrophy, prostate gland enlargement can cause bothersome urinary symptoms. Untreated prostate gland enlargement can block the flow of urine out of the bladder and can cause bladder, urinary tract or kidney problems.
