I have incontinence at night pretty regularly. I have to wear Depends in order to sleep. I've been doing this for years so it's become normal for me. However, I notice that I am not incontinent when I do the following:
- Regularly taking Metamucil - Metamucil has done wonders for me in helping give my stool more form.
- Take imodium before bed - I can usually get through the entire night on only one imodium depending on what I ate that day.
- This one is difficult for me - Don't eat anything after dinner and don't eat dinner later than 7 pm.
If I am doing the above things, I don't normally have an accident during the night.
Sometimes if I feel a little backed up I'll do an enema before I go to bed and make sure I feel more cleared out before lying down. Hopefully this helps some.
