Ethipramine is actually an old fashioned anti -depressant medicine that was found by chance to also have a beneficial effect on the bladder. It helps to strengthen the valve leading from the bladder and has come to be used in some children with bed-wetting problems. It is important that the correct dose of this medicine is used. Your daughter is on the correct dose and it is safe for fairly long term use, 6 months or even longer. It is important to note that Ethipramine is being used to treat your daughter's bed-wetting and not her mood swings. Please discuss her mood swings when you next see the doctor.
