    he made me LOSE my patience.

    he made me LOSE my patience.
    he made me to lose my patience.
    he made me losing my patience.
    please explain!


    1. He made me lose my patience (correct) = cause me to feel

    2.We use make + infinitive without to (to lose). So he made me to lose my patience is not correct.

    3. I imagine, after an object I can't use gerund.(losing)
    Am I correct?
    Please correct me.

    The version that is correct is as follows:

    He made me lose my patience.
