My MW tells me a gallon (128 oz). I drink almost 100 oz a day. (Which BTW is more than 1/2 my body wieght in oz. I had to add that for my own good. )

When I had near-passing out episodes a couple weeks ago, the nurse at my dr's office told me I should be drinking several glasses of juice or other clear liquids plus 8 8 ounce glasses of water a day. I guess we know why we pee so much

I was told 64oz, maybe I am wrong. I try to drink as much as I can, esp water of juice. I do have one cup of java in the morning and that is all the caffeine I allow
