Medicines may be used to control bed-wetting for a little while. They don't completely stop it.
In a few cases, when a small bladder capacity or overactive bladder is thought to be the cause of bed-wetting, oxybutynin (Ditropan) may be used to treat bed-wetting, especially when the child also has daytime accidental wettings.
What To Think About
Medicines usually are not used to treat bed-wetting in young children, unless the medicine is known to be safe.
Most children start wetting the bed again after medicine treatment is stopped.
