Women who self-report symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB), including nocturia, experience significant sleep deficits and a diminished quality of life. These deficits and their impacts are greater among women who awaken two or more times per night. When evaluating patients with OAB, it is important for clinicians to assess sleep habits and practices in addition to bladder symptoms to fully gauge the health and well-being of women with OAB.
