    Do you tend to pee more if you have more coffee or tea than usual? If so how much approximately??

    Not really. For me it is related to overall fluid intake, i.e. drinking plain water or drinking coffee/tea have about the same effect.

    Its odd. I have two cups on a morning ( I like it STRONG as in 2 spoons per cup) and one at teatime. Anymore than that and I am up 2/3 times in the night. Bizarrely, lager and water dont make me get up in the night!! :joyful:

    According to my DN the caffeine in tea or coffee is a diuretic. When I asked her about peeing a lot she told me to get de-caf. I can't say it helped much but the point is that if caffeine is a diuretic then yes, coffee can make you pee.
