Doctors tell you not to worry; your child will outgrow bedwetting. Statistically, after the age of 7, the chances decrease.

Bedwetting-CostsWaiting can be costly! According to virtualmedicalcentre.com one study estimated that the cost associated with washing and drying bed linen was $1,000 per year.

Nighttime protection such as PullUps or GoodNites can cost from $300-$800 yearly to keep the bed dry.

Choosing to medicate your child can cost from $75 -$649.75 per month (check prices at healthpricer.com/Desmopressin) for prescription drugs that will not cure the bedwetting problem. Once you stop the medication, the bedwetting symptoms return.

Side effects can be costly.

Everydayhealth.com provided caution when taking medications often prescribe by pediatricians for bedwetting.

One example is a medication called Desmopressin or DDAVP.

What is the most important information I should know about Desmopressin?
Desmopressin (Oral)

It is very important to reduce your intake of water and other fluids while you are taking desmopressin. Drinking too much water can cause your body to lose sodium, which may lead to a serious, life-threatening electrolyte imbalance.

Fluid restriction is especially important in children and older adults taking desmopressin. Follow your doctor’s instructions about the type and amount of liquids you should drink.

You should not use this medication if you have severe kidney disease or if you have ever had hyponatremia (low sodium levels in your body).
Before taking desmopressin, tell your doctor if you have heart disease, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, kidney disease, cystic fibrosis, high or low blood pressure, an electrolyte imbalance, or a psychological disorder that causes extreme or unusual thirst.

To be sure desmopressin is helping your condition, your blood will need to be tested often. This will help your doctor determine how long to treat you with this medication. Do not miss any scheduled appointments.
Desmopressin (Nasal)

It is very important to reduce your intake of water and other fluids while you are using desmopressin. Drinking too much water can cause your body to lose sodium, which may lead to a serious, life-threatening electrolyte imbalance.

This medication comes with patient instructions for safe and effective use. Follow these directions carefully. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

The Enuresis Treatment Center does not believe waiting is an option. For 40 years they have understood and treated the underlying problem; an inherited deep sleep disorder. This non-restorative, fragmented sleep takes on many symptoms besides bedwetting. Daytime symptoms can include: difficulty concentrating, fatigue, irritability, and memory difficulty.

Their approach to stopping bedwetting is to focus on changing the sleep pattern, which ends the bedwetting. Their findings show this is the best treatment protocol for the child, teenager, or adult suffering from bedwetting.
