My daughter is 15 and still wets the bed is something wrong she's been on all the tablets and nothing worked. What should I do?
when bedwetting continues over many years it becomes increasingly frustrating for both the parents and the child. It must feel at times that this will never come to an end. Let me reassure you that it will. When we look at the effects of bedwetting on children’s social and emotional wellbeing we find that it is how the bedwetting is managed that seems to have the greatest impact. So it is important that she understands this is not her fault – her bedwetting is not something she has a lot of control over. While medication can be useful in the short-term, with many adolescents using it for sleepovers or for attending school camps – the problem is that once you stop taking the medication then the bedwetting will return. Have your tried her with a bedwetting alarm? These have a very good success rate with about 75% of children achieving nighttime continence after their use. Make an appointment to discuss this with your GP or get a referral to see a continence advisor before giving this a go, as the more support and guidance your receive from an experienced professional the greater the chances of success. Some parents have also experienced better outcomes when combining treatments like hypnotherapy with a conditioning alarm.
