I recieved medication from the doctor once when i was young but it was probably a placebo because it had no effect on me.
Hi D., given your age and the fact that you are about to go away to college, I would certainly recommend speaking with your doctor. With respct to the medication that you took when you were younger – this is not particularly unusual, with many children continuing to wet after taking medication. If you are looking at treatment, I would recommend trying a conditioning alarm. There are two main types of alarms. One is a body alarm with a small sensor that can be worn inside your pyjamas. The second type of alarm is a bell and pad alarm that is placed like a mat over the bottom sheet. This is connected to an alarm box placed at the end of the bed. Some alarms have different settings that allow you to vary the sound – sometimes a louder alarm will raise a particularly deep sleeper. The success of the alarm increases among individuals with less frequent wetting like yourself – so I think this would be a great treatment choice. Before purchasing an alarm it is important that you speak with a continence specialist who will be able to advise you which one is best for your son. Good luck!
