I had it at first as well, seemed to settle down after a month or so though, it might be a side effect of the increased thirst james - though I recall you have a kidney issue so that might compound it.

It always felt like i needed to go worse than I did, and then only a small amount would be expelled - is that what youre getting?

The first thing that pops into my mind is check for diabetes.  There are also urological issues you could be having, so I wouldn't just ignore the problem if it persists.  See your urologist.

I was thirsty more and drank more with lithium, but it didn't make me get up at night.  The last thing that did that was a urinary tract infection.

It could be your prostate.
