ADHD and Bed Wetting

“Our 10-year-old son still wets his bed, yet a urologist could find nothing wrong. Could ADHD be to blame?”

I know of no correlation between ADHD and bedwetting. Try limiting your son’s fluid intake after 6 p.m. Make sure he goes to the bathroom before going to sleep. Try waking him three hours after bedtime to go again. Many parents have had luck with bedwetting “alert” devices, such as Wee-Alert. If the problem continues, ask your doctor about trying hormone therapy to decrease nighttime production of urine or increase the bladder’s capacity.
