Suggest treatment for primary enuresis

Hi, my son is 9 years old and has primary enuresis. He was born with mild hypospadias which was operated at 6 month. He is emotionally and socially adjusted, melancholy rather than exuberant, on the short side for his age (30%, I believe), does sports, has friends. My sister was bedwetting until at least 8, but not as often. Is there anything beside medication I can do? What is the prognosis with medication?

Hi,

The prognosis is excellent with medications. You need to make him stop drinking fluids before going to bed by 3 hours, also wake him up every 2 hours to go to the toilet. This will fasten his response to medications.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Salah Saad Shoman
