Patient discussion about bedwetting

Q. Is the link between bedwetting and medicines possible? I am really worried about my 6 year old son. He is bedwetting these days every night. Initially I thought it was normal with children and then I noticed that after his diagnosis with ADHD last year the doctor has prescribed him some meds and bedwetting started thereafter. ..I think it is because of medicines. My elder son never had this problem at any point of time and he is not ADHD. Is the link between bedwetting and meds possible?

A. Well the link between ADHD and bedwetting is not clear and moreover it is common in children with or without ADHD…but ADHD children do have a higher chances of bedwetting, the reason understood are that they do not realize the importance of bed wetting and wetting doesn’t discomforts them, moreover children with ADHD are distractible and do not pay attention to the signals of the need to avoid and thus piss on bed. Your elder son did not have ADHD so he understood the controls and the need and was psychologically stronger.
