Your doctor will decide if your child’s wetting could benefit from any further medications or treatments. The types of treatments that are available for the various wetting problems are:
- Desmopressin (Desmotabs’ or Desmomelts’), which is used to treat night-time wetting (nocturnal enuresis) where your child’s urine production at night is large. Your doctor will advise you if this is suitable for your child and at what dose to give it.
- Anticholinergic medications: These are medications that are used to treat detrusor overactivity (daytime wetting). Your doctor will advise you which is the most suitable for your child and at what dose to use it.
- Enuresis Alarm: Your child may also benefit from using a special alarm at night to treat their night-time wetting (nocturnal enuresis), and this is called the enuresis alarm. You can find out more about this alarm and how to get one from the ERIC website (address available in the links page of this website).
