My 7 year old daughter was diagnosed with ADD when she was 4, and we tried everything before we decided on a low dose of Concerta last year when she was 6. She has made lightening speed improvements in school, so I'm comfortable in thinking that medication was the right decision. (She couldn't count past 12 or write all her ABC's when she started, and now she is above grade level in reading and math.)
However, about 5 months after we started her on the medication she started to wet herself. I'm not talking about spoting, but she soaks herself. She spots nearly everyday, and soaks herself by peeing about 2 or 3 times a week. We have been to the doctor, and they can't tell me what's going on. She thoughts it was mental.
Rather than medicating her more, we went to a family therpist who told us she belived it was anxiety. After 6 sessions, we thought things had improved, but they haven't. She will do really good for a while, but then have a really bad few weeks. Even if it's not as bad as soaking herself, she is always spotting her panties.
Does this have anything to do with her ADD? Is her medication a factor? How can I help her get better control of her bladder?View Thread
