My GP has given me Desmopressin to help with incontinence. I already take Vessicare. When I take Desmopressin I feel like a normal person as I don’t get the urge to go all the time. However, I try not to take it as it stops urine production for about 6 hours. I wonder if that is healthy? Does anyone else take this drug? I know it’s given for bed wetting but this is to help me in the day.
Some years ago I was prescribed Desmopressin as a nasal spray for my bed wetting. It worked but it gave me terrible headaches and such bad urge incontinence during the day that I needed to wear protection so was wearing adult nappies 24/7. I used to limit using the nasal spray to when I was staying away from home. Many years and several spinal operations later I live with Incontinence 24/7 and only use adult nappies to manage it as medication does not work.
