DEAR DR. ROACH: My husband, 79 years old, is getting up five or six times at night to urinate. The urgent care doctor said he doesnt have an infection but doesnt know whats going on. He is taking Flomax, but that doesnt seem to be helping. Who should he see? E.L.O.
ANSWER: Urinating at nighttime (nocturia) is a common problem for men, but if this is a new or suddenly worsened problem, it requires evaluation.
