Q.

Bed Wetting

My boy of 8 years is using Lenditro for bed wetting. It really helps. Is the long term effects dangerous? (He''s been using it for 8 months) Should we get the machine that has an alarm to wake him up when he starts weeing? Bed wetting is in my family - I only stopped at age 13 - guess it would be same for him. Can I continue him on Lenditro till then?

Your son can safely use Lenditro but must not use this tablet if he ever has a fever.His doctor should monitor his response to this treatment regularly.I certainly hope that he will not have to use the Lenditro for the next 5 years but will be able to come off this treatment in the near future.
