What Is the Medical Treatment for Bedwetting?
Patient Comment Read 1 Comment
After an organic cause has been ruled out, there is no medical urgency to treat the child. Bedwetting tends to go away by itself. Discuss the treatment options with your child's health-care provider; together you can decide whether treatment is right for your child.
Several drug therapies are available.
Medical opinion is divided on using drugs to treat bedwetting. Many believe that, since the child will outgrow the bedwetting anyway, the risks outweigh the benefits of taking the drugs.
Surgery for Bedwetting
Certain underlying medical or physical conditions may require surgery.
