This girl may need medication to reduce enuresis
. Drugs belonging to the anti-cholinergic category (such as oxybutinin) may help to start with. Eventually, she may need desmopressin
to control the problem. Enuresis alarms are unlikely to help as she is mentally challenged. Lifting her at midnight is likely to be of temporary benefit. And the medicines (both those that I have written about) may also not work. This is going to be a difficult one to crack.
