Bed Wetting

I was just wondering if anyone else was a bed wetter or has children that are? I don't know if there is a link with asthma but was just wondering. I have 3 children and the two with asthma were both bed wetters. My 9 year old still suffers from this. My older son stopped when he was about 8. It is troublesome but nothing compared to the asthma. I am just looking for a bit of advice. Thanks in advance.

Mike, now 17 and well (kids can improve) was dry at night until he started on slo-phylliin (Aminophylline type drug) I swore blind it was the drug that caused him to beb wet and once he came off it be became dry again. So any of them take ony theophylline/aminiphyline type drugs it could be that, although link never clinically proven unlike the going hyper which we did clincally prove.



my 11 year old still has this problem and he is the most severe of my 3 asthmatic kids. he has special cotton undersheets from the hospital which at least prevent a reaction to the usual plastic bed covers.


Bex mentioned theophtlline type drugs, they are known to cause bladder instability and increase the amopunt of urine made, this could be a cause for potential bed wetting.
