Bedwetting and ADHD

At age six, they found that children with ADHD were 2.7 times more likely to have bedwetting than the control children. This group of children with
ADHD also had 4.5 times more daytime wetting.


Thankfully, this is not a problem for my ADHD son. However, this must be an issue for some ADHD as the University of South Carolina Medical Center did a study on this very topic. To read more visit Nutrition in Action, Inc.

  1. ugh- this takes me back... as soon as i started taking damien's nappy off to potty train him, he started wetting his bed.
    for a while he was on a generic equivalent of tofranil which helped immensely, but i didn't like his doctor so i discontinued it after about 3 years.
    he continued to wet his bed almost every night till he was about 12. i dreaded going anywhere or sending him anywhere so that neither of us would be embarrassed!

  2. Many bedwetters are misdiagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Symptoms of a bedwetter’s deep sleep disorder, such as the inability to stay focused or to concentrate, are almost identical to those of ADD/ADHD. For 32 years, the Enuresis Treatment Center has successfully treated thousands of people from around the world by correcting an unhealthy deep sleep pattern. One this pattern is corrected, the bedwetting is permanently resolved, and the ADD/ADHD symptoms often abate. The Enuresis Treatment Center has put together an informative guide to understanding and treating bedwetting. This free bedwetting guide is available to download at www.freebedwettingguide.com
