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.

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??

We started behavior therapy a ... Show Full Comment
