Bladder problems - 6yr old

Good day Doctor,

My son is 6 and not dry at night. He''s been on Tofranil which is not working anymore after 4mnths. There is nothing wrong physically and we''ve tried all the methods / fluid limits/ waking up at night/ rewards etc...

Someone on the parenting forum quoted the following to me:

"  We also used medication, very cheap, just can''''t remeber the name, someting with a E. They give it to old people with bladder problems, she would drink one every night. Ask your normal GP. She was on this for about two months. " 

Do you perhaps know what this medication is?

Thank you, we are very desperate....

Hallo Lee
Nope, have no idea what she is talking about - sorry... Could be Ethipramine (but it is very much the same thing as Tofranil)
Has he seen an urologist, and was chronic constipation excluded? Has he been evaluated by a psychologist as it can be due to underlying anxiety (some children are just highly strung?)
