I totally agree with Lisa - research ANY medicine before giving it to your child. I took my son, 5, to the doctor for night time bedwetting to rule out any physical problems. He has none. I did ask about treatments, and not necessarily medication. He did say there are about 3 different medications, but he does not recommend any of them due to their strong side affects like seizures. No thanks! He said the bedwetting would be something he would outgrow. I have tried the liquid reduction in the evenings, rewards for nights that are dry, setting my alarm to get him up - unfortunately none worked. We are going to try the alarm.
