Ditropan review by care giver of 6 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Mild Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   incontinence
Dosage & duration:   2x 5ml daily (dosage frequency: 2x daily) for the period of 1 month
Other conditions:   urge incontinence, wetting at night
Other drugs taken:   n/a
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   The medicine has stopped her wetting both day and night and worked within a week of her taking it. She is over the moon and so am I!
Side effects:   My daughter complains of a pain in her bladder area and some constipation and her face looks a little flushed. I am considering lowering the dose to 2x 2.5ml per day
Comments:   She has had 4 years of bladder infections and has had various scans and tests. I think that she has never been able to read the signals from her bladder properly due to all the infections. This medicine which was prescribed by the dr on a trial basis seems to be working well. We will try to wean her off it slowly after a little while
