    I'm 26 now, but I wet the bed until I was 13. I took this med when I was with no affect so we stopped. when I went back on it at 11 is worked! It took 2 years to be able to go off entirely and I haven't had an episode in the 13 years since I went off it.

So we are on day 6 with taking 1 pill a night and it has NOT worked at all. So tomorrow n ... Show Full Comment

    we used the nasal spray first. first three nights, one squirt per script instructions. No results. Called doc. he said double up. No results. We switched to pill. One pill each night for a week. No results. Two pills each night for a week. No results. This was a waste of time and money and it has made my son feel worse about himself.

    I have provided care for special needs (Developmentally Disabled) children & adults since 1991. Two of the males were wet most every morning. After introduction of DDVAP, both remained dry within a week of taking the 0.2 MG DDAVP tablet both were DRY overnight! Male #1 began DDVAP in 1993 @ age 10. Took DDVAP about 3 years. After discontinuance of DDAVP, he was then dry @ night. Male #2 be ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    My daughter (9) has been on this for more than 2 years. She is using the nasal spray, 1 squirt each night. No bedwetting unless she forgets to take it. My concern is she has gained weight in the last 2 years and am not sure if its from this medicine or not. Are there any other alternatives to bedwetting than desmopressin??
