My husband is on Asa 325mg and sotalol 80 mg twice a day. He has an indwelling catheter due to inability to urinate. He is currently under hospice care. He continually complains about the need to urinate. Will cystex release this symptom.
This is a common problem with catheters. After its checked for placement, if its ok, then something can be used for irritation its causing. I'm thinking something like azo would help. It lessens bladder spasms and irritation. Its otc. His dr could prescribe phenazopyridine too. Its for the same thing.
I dont think Cystex is going to help much. KM has a better idea with AZO-Standard (or having the doc write for phenazopyridine hydrochloride) which is a medication that stops bladder spasms. It will turn his urine a bright orange color and it stains everything it comes in contact with so if he has any leakages, this may not make you happy. Another good option is B&O suppositories-his Dr could prescribe them as they are a big help with bladder spasms in men. We used B&O a lot after prostate surgeries when men have to have catheters in long term. None of these meds should interfere with the meds you listed.
