Constantly thirsty even when drinking a lot of water

Recommended Posts

I've had this problem for over 3+ years and my pdoc said none of the meds cause this.

However, I checked my meds that I take and there are several that causes excessive thirst.

I also went to my primary doctor and he did a diabetes test and that was good.


What can I do about this? It's making my life miserable.

The benztropine is a prime candidate for causing this level of thirst. I had to discontinue that one due to the side effects regarding extreme thirst and dry mouth.

Hi there there seems to be something related called "psychogenic polydipsia" and happens to people with bipolar and schizophrenia.

I might have it.
