Most children will naturally grow out of their bedwetting stage, but rare cases can be extreme and some families decide to treat bedwetting with prescription medication. This option should only be at the recommendation of your child’s doctor and after all other bedwetting treatments and bedwetting management strategies have been exhausted.
Some children may find relief in medication if they have a big event, such as school camp or a weekend away, but you should only go down this path if your GP advises that it’s safe.
Bedwetting medication treats the problem while in use, with only around 30% of children achieving total success after its use. Many children return to wetting the bed once medication is removed, however studies assessing its effectiveness show tapering off the dose rather than sudden withdrawal does increase rates of success.
