Hi all. My son, who is 8, has been seeing a consultant for over a year for night time bed wetting. We have tried lots of things including a bed alarm which we were using for 9 months with no consistent improvement, so a few weeks ago when I spoke to the doctor, he suggested that we stop the alarm and try oxybutamin.
The thing is, ever since we stopped using the alarm, my son has been almost dry every night. I think he is still wetting a bit but my husband is convinced he is dry. I’ve now got the medication but don’t know whether to try it or leave him if he is dry without it most nights.
Back in May we did stop using the alarm for a few weeks as we were all so tired but that time he was very wet every night.
Is it possible he’s just become dry? How do we know without an alarm whether he is completely dry every night (smelly pants just due to a bit of dribbling?) and do we start the medication? I don’t know what to do for the best so would welcome any ideas.
