Hi Daurban,
Thanks for writing your query.

Polyuria or frequent urination has a number of causes and should be investigated properly to know the exact cause in your case.
Some common causes include :-
1. Diabetes
2. Drinking excessive fluids
3. Cold enviornment
4. Infection of the urinary tract
5. Psychogenic
6. Usage of diuretics

You should get yourself investigated for Blood sugar (Fasting and PP) and also get your urine examined for Routine/Microscopic and Culture/senstivity.
Antibiotic can be taken if urine examination indicates pus cells and antibiotic can be selected according to the culture/senstivity report.

If your problem persists, get yourself examined by your urologist.
I hope this is helpful to you.

Please take urinary antispasmodics like Oxybutinine or Solifenacin in addition to all the drugs that you are taking now See your family get prescription of these drugs.
