Brief Answer:
How much of this do you take daily?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for this query.

This is clearly related to a prostate problem. What is the dosage of your dutasteride? It might need to be increased. In addition, try to avoid drinking much water just before going to bed or in the later part of the day. The best solution would have been surgery but at your age, this is simply not the best approach and not recommended.

Let me know what the dosage is and whether you have tried any other medications before.
