I recently started drinking water at work. Roughly 60 oz. Over an 8 hour period. The only problem is I have to pee every 20 minutes. IS that normal?

Yes: Amount of urine has to do with amount of intake. You drink 60 oz in 8 hours ie 2.5 oz per 20 minutes. If you measure it you will prove that you pass 2.5 oz per void. Younger persons hold it & go every 2 hours to pass 15 ounces at once but with age, irritable bladder (or prostate in men) you need to go more often. You don't need this much fluids unless you have kidney stones. Spread 60 oz over 12hr ...Read more
