Hi everyone,
I am new to this forum and looking for advice from people whose children have similar problems.
My 8 year old daughter wets the bed and is medicated with vasopressin at night (for 2 years now) she has alway had stages where this has worked and sometimes it hasn't. Currently she hasn't had a dry night in over 4 months, sometimes twice, 3 times a night, I have currently put her back in pull up pants as she was getting tired and fed up with this. She also dribbles a lot during the day often changing her underwear a few times each day.
I have been to the docs and we are awaiting an appointment at the hospital.
Just wondered if anyone had overcome this.

Thank you
Susan xxx
