Nocturia is a bothersome and highly prevalent condition defined by the International Continence Society as the need to wake one or more times nightly to void with each void preceded and followed by sleep. 
Studies of the relationship between QOL and nocturia suggest that the condition becomes clinically significant when 2 or more voids nightly are experienced. Among LUTS, nocturia is consistently reported to be one of the most bothersome symptoms by men as well as women and significantly compromises sleep and overall QoL.
