Try Advil for frequent urination

A breakthrough for me recently. Car trips were awful, up to 5 stops for just a 3 hours of driving. Took an Advil, 200mg, one hour before leaving. One stop mid trip. Also reduced night get up from 2 to 3 per 6.5 hours to 0 to 1. And it seems to carry over several days. I think a big part of BPH may be inflamation.
Need some other people to try this and report back!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Advil is helpful in inflammation but underlying cause needs to be elucidated. I would suggest you ultrasound for prostate and urinalysis to sort out the underlying problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
