My son,11, has taken this med for over 6 months. He was dry from day 1 with just one pill. We did not 'take a break' after a couple of months as directed by the md. About 2 months after beginning this treatment, he became very irritable, angry and prone to explosive episodes of frustration and aggression, even hitting himself in the forehead with his fist. We started behavior therapy and I too...

My son was on this medication for a year... with mixed results. I took him to the urologist at Childrens Med Center WA, DC. and was told NOT to use this medicine, it was put on the FDA black box list, AND was told by the doctor that 80% of the children they see are merely DEHYDRATED.. and DON'T need medicine, they merely need to drink 8 oz of water and then pee and continue that throught he day.

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. Come to found out as an adult I actually have a condition called Interstitial Cystitis....so that probably worsened my bed wetting as a kid. Either way though I credit this medication (along with bladder training) with finally helping me to be a normal kid (who didn't have to wear pull-ups to sleep overs anymore!!)

9 year old son is a constant bedwetter all his life. Finally we got this medication after the Doctor had him eat salty chips before bed. That didnt work. Thought he was "backed up" so they did an ultrasound - not backed up. Obviously we did the cutting off liquids HOURS before bed- still didnt work. So we are on day 6 with taking 1 pill a night and it has NOT worked at all. So tomorrow night we will be uping it to 2 pills. will report back.....

I take it TID, so it is a pain to remember to take it at work. Even though it is a little less effective than the Nasal Spray, it is better on my blood pressure (sort of evens it out more), and it is easier on the nose :).

I have been taking DDAVP since I was 5 years old, I am now 28. I take 3 sprays in the morning, afternoon and before bed for Diabetes Insipidus. Without this medication I would literally need to urinate every 5 minutes. By taking this medication I don't need to go for several hours and I can sleep through the night. This medications begins to work immediately since it is absorbed through sinus passages. I have tried using the pill form with no luck. DDAVP is a life saver for me. Con- The only one I can think of is when I have sever sinus congestion it becomes difficult for me to get and adequate amount.
