Are there medications to help with bedwetting?

ANSWER

Two drugs approved by the FDA specifically for bed-wetting: DDAVP and Tofranil. Other medications that are sometimes used to treat bed-wetting include Ditropan and Levsin.

Drug therapy doesn't work for everyone, and these medications can have significant side effects. Talk to your child's doctor to determine if drug therapy is right for your child.
