Doctor: Most children outgrow bed-wetting on their own by the age of seven or if there is a family history of bed-wetting, aroun d the age the parent stopped bed-wetting. Sine you’ve tried several measures including cutting fluid intake at bedtime, a last resort resort could be medication to stop bed-wetting. These include the drug desmopressin acetate (DDAVP) that causes the the body to make less urine at night. Sometimes a combination of medications is most effective. There are no guarantees, however, and medication doesn’t always cure the problem.
