How to wean off medication DDAVP?
I have been taking this medicine for MANY years because I had an injury to my pituitary. I don't need this medicine anymore (and I think I've been taking it longer than needed) but it's nearly impossible to wean off this medicine. Anyone successfully wean or get off this-and if so, HOW? Asked by Ebonie Carridine 1 year ago.

DDAVP replaces a hormone that helps you concentrate your urine. If you started it because of pituitary damage what makes you think you no longer need it? Brain cells do not regenerate. You can not grow a new pituitary gland. Please seek advice from your health care provider before you make any changes in your drug regime. Answered by Suzan Oline 1 year ago.


Is ddavp nasal spray safe for everyday use for bedwetting?
17 year old Asked by Libby Rodrigue 1 year ago.

I think I just answered another question of yours but just to address the "safety" issue, since there are some "scary" reports out there (some true, some false) -- it is safe AS LONG as you take it EXACTLY as instructed by your doctor and on the label! DDAVP is a drug that basically works by forcing your body to retain water -- it temporarily "shuts off" the ability of your kidneys to pass water out of the body, which is obviously helpful for not over-filling your bladder at night, but can be a problem if you have too much water in your system otherwise. Usually they will just tell you to limit yourself to a small amount of water intake (8 oz or less) between when you take it at night and the next morning. People have had serious problems when drinking too much water after taking DDAVP because their bodies become "overloaded" with water and it dilutes the vital electrolytes (sodium, potassium, etc.) in their bloodstream to dangerous levels. Another problem is that it also gives some people the feeling of a dry mouth, which makes it tempting to drink water. As long as you don't drink water though, it's really very safe. If any of this is not clear to you, please ask your doctor about it! As a reminder also. DDAVP does not "cure" bedwetting; it just stops your body from needing to urinate at night, but whatever the underlying cause of the bedwetting is (whether it's a problem with the bladder, kidneys, muscles, nerves or whatever) will still be there when the medication is stopped. Lots of people decide that it's not worth it to take the medication every night, but do keep some around to take for things like sleepovers (or any kid of staying away from home when you do NOT want the bed to get wet!) and just wet the bed the rest of the time until their body outgrows it. Really you just have to decide what is the best solution for you, personally -- just be safe and be sure to ask your doctor about any questions or concerns! Answered by Billie Muna 1 year ago.

She also had a bladder infection which is still being treated with antibiotics. Does anyone know how long it takes until the dog stops urinating so much? Thank you in advance!!! Asked by Verdie Robinett 1 year ago.

Hi, This is something you should be discussing with your vet. My gut feeling is, (I'm assuming that the DDAVP is an ADH analog), that the DDAVP should work fairly promptly *however* you'll still have other problems to deal with (like the habits she's been forming while you've been working things out, as well as the bladder infection.) Dale Answered by Brant Rynn 1 year ago.

My puppies did the distinct identical factor (all 4 of them on the time and my domestic dog did as good this final time) once we moved from NJ to IL, then from our condo into our condo. How lengthy have you ever lived there? Mine acted like that for probably the primary month till they obtained over the preliminary OMG WE'RE IN A NEW PLACE FOR GOOD segment. I left a radio or a fan on and that obviously looked as if it would support matters. I bet the regular noise cancels out whatever unusual sounding while you are first there, as good as turns into a noise they are used to.

DDAVP and Zoloft with Alcohol (Bedwetting)?
ALSO How many hours should i stop the intake of liquids completly before bed? Asked by Lorilee Zuclich 1 year ago.

So I am 22 (male) and am staying the night with a few buds from my old HS in Tuscon, AZ Tonight and i have always had a constant thing of bedwetting persay since i was a kid the doctor prescribed me DDAVP (Desmopressin) for when i do stay the night somewhere besides my apartment i dont have the embarrassing task of having to tell my friend i wet the sheets or him wondering why im washing them. And again this doesnt happen ALL the time ... Anyways so he said that we ll have a few beers and some of this awesome wine i love so in all ill probably have like 3 bottles of beer and 1-2 cups of my fav wine. And cutting that amount down just wont be an option (haha) anyways i take ZOLOFT (SSRI~Anti Depressant) as well 100mg however i havent taken that in 20 hours and dont plan on taking it till i wake up tomorrow since im drinking.. Is drinking dangerous with DDAVP ?? What advice do you have so i dont wet the bed i know this sounds so kiddish but its a problem that really isolatesme from staying the nite at ppls houses but this time i cant cuz theyve been asking for a get together forever and i cant just drive home cuz its a 3 hr drive and ill be drinksing so thats out of the picture... So any advice on not wetting the bed? And is ddavp dangerous with alcohol? Answered by Enedina Ney 1 year ago.

Alcohol and caffeine, despite being diuretics (urinary output promoters) don't seem to negate or override the effects of DDAVP™ (desmopressin): "As far as we know, alcohol does not negate the effect of dDAVP. It may slightly increase the rate of disposal but this effect is minimal. In normal people, ethanol produces an increase in urine output by inhibiting secretion of the natural hormone, vasopressin. This effect obviously would not occur with dDAVP." If you're still worried, try minimizing the beers or front-loading them to the early hours of the evening. After 9PM, just sip wine.

How long are you allowed to drink that tablet, he is getting it because he wets his bed a lot, he is also on Retalin 30mg for the morning, and retalin 10mg for the afternoon. He is hyperactive and since he's been using the retalin his schoolwork has improved a lot. But in the mornings when he wakes up he is a total other person, he doesn't see you or hear you, he is in a totaly other world but when he gets his retalin he calms down alot. He also get fits, but only when he has a fever or from shock, the docter says it is epeleptic atacks, but he only gets it maybe once a year. Answered by Ariane Taliman 1 year ago.

Desmopressin (DDAVP) - Fluid Restriction?
I'm going to be taking DDAVP and i was warned about reducing fluid intake. About how much should I be drinking? I usually drink 8+ cups of water. Is that too much? How many cups of water is good? What happens if I drink too much? If it matters, I'm taking the pill form 0.2mg Thanks in advanced. Asked by Bennett Schuff 1 year ago.

People's needs vary and you will have to see what happens when you take the drug. Eight cups of total fluid intake is a good starting point, but this includes the water content of the food as well. Eight cups water in addition to other water sources is probably more than you need. The best guide is your urine color. You're not drinking enough when the urine is yellow or dark and you're drinking too much if the urine is completely clear. One exception is if you are taking vitamin pills. Some multivitamins turn the urine orange or bright yellow The color should be somewhere in between yellow and clear. There's good info at the link. Answered by Erwin Macnaughton 1 year ago.

Call the doctor who presecribed the drug. 8+ cups is way too much. Why are you being given this drug? That affects what your fluid intake should be. BTW - the 8-cups recommendation is a fiction. About 30 years ago, an article estimated the total daily fluid intake for an average adult as 2 liters. That counted all the liquid that was in food. Unless you're eating dry sand, you get plenty of water from your food. This was a description, not a goal or a recommendation. 2 liters is about 8 cups, and this turned into a mythical recommendation to drink 8 cups. Please talk to your doctor about your fluid intake restriction. Without knowing why you are taking it, I cannot make a recommendation, because the reason makes a difference. Your doctor should explain how to weigh yourself and use your weight to monitor excessive fluid retention. Answered by Lashandra Larrier 1 year ago.

DDAVP and Zoloft with Alcohol (Bedwetting)?
ALSO How many hours should i stop the intake of liquids completly before bed? Asked by Chante Greaves 1 year ago.

So I am 22 (male) and am staying the night with a few buds from my old HS in Tuscon, AZ Tonight and i have always had a constant thing of bedwetting persay since i was a kid the doctor prescribed me DDAVP (Desmopressin) for when i do stay the night somewhere besides my apartment i dont have the embarrassing task of having to tell my friend i wet the sheets or him wondering why im washing them. And again this doesnt happen ALL the time ... Anyways so he said that we ll have a few beers and some of this awesome wine i love so in all ill probably have like 3 bottles of beer and 1-2 cups of my fav wine. And cutting that amount down just wont be an option (haha) anyways i take ZOLOFT (SSRI~Anti Depressant) as well 100mg however i havent taken that in 20 hours and dont plan on taking it till i wake up tomorrow since im drinking.. Is drinking dangerous with DDAVP ?? What advice do you have so i dont wet the bed i know this sounds so kiddish but its a problem that really isolatesme from staying the nite at ppls houses but this time i cant cuz theyve been asking for a get together forever and i cant just drive home cuz its a 3 hr drive and ill be drinksing so thats out of the picture... So any advice on not wetting the bed? And is ddavp dangerous with alcohol? Answered by Bobby Hootman 1 year ago.

Alcohol and caffeine, despite being diuretics (urinary output promoters) don't seem to negate or override the effects of DDAVP™ (desmopressin): "As far as we know, alcohol does not negate the effect of dDAVP. It may slightly increase the rate of disposal but this effect is minimal. In normal people, ethanol produces an increase in urine output by inhibiting secretion of the natural hormone, vasopressin. This effect obviously would not occur with dDAVP." If you're still worried, try minimizing the beers or front-loading them to the early hours of the evening. After 9PM, just sip wine.

Desmopressin (DDAVP) - Fluid Restriction?
I'm going to be taking DDAVP and i was warned about reducing fluid intake. About how much should I be drinking? I usually drink 8+ cups of water. Is that too much? How many cups of water is good? What happens if I drink too much? If it matters, I'm taking the pill form 0.2mg Thanks in advanced. Asked by Ione Petropoulos 1 year ago.

People's needs vary and you will have to see what happens when you take the drug. Eight cups of total fluid intake is a good starting point, but this includes the water content of the food as well. Eight cups water in addition to other water sources is probably more than you need. The best guide is your urine color. You're not drinking enough when the urine is yellow or dark and you're drinking too much if the urine is completely clear. One exception is if you are taking vitamin pills. Some multivitamins turn the urine orange or bright yellow The color should be somewhere in between yellow and clear. There's good info at the link. Answered by Qiana Davensizer 1 year ago.

Call the doctor who presecribed the drug. 8+ cups is way too much. Why are you being given this drug? That affects what your fluid intake should be. BTW - the 8-cups recommendation is a fiction. About 30 years ago, an article estimated the total daily fluid intake for an average adult as 2 liters. That counted all the liquid that was in food. Unless you're eating dry sand, you get plenty of water from your food. This was a description, not a goal or a recommendation. 2 liters is about 8 cups, and this turned into a mythical recommendation to drink 8 cups. Please talk to your doctor about your fluid intake restriction. Without knowing why you are taking it, I cannot make a recommendation, because the reason makes a difference. Your doctor should explain how to weigh yourself and use your weight to monitor excessive fluid retention. Answered by Jessi Mediate 1 year ago.

How to wean off medication DDAVP?
I have been taking this medicine for MANY years because I had an injury to my pituitary. I don't need this medicine anymore (and I think I've been taking it longer than needed) but it's nearly impossible to wean off this medicine. Anyone successfully wean or get off this-and if so, HOW? Asked by Keeley Abood 1 year ago.

DDAVP replaces a hormone that helps you concentrate your urine. If you started it because of pituitary damage what makes you think you no longer need it? Brain cells do not regenerate. You can not grow a new pituitary gland. Please seek advice from your health care provider before you make any changes in your drug regime. Answered by Isobel Klena 1 year ago.


Is ddavp nasal spray safe for everyday use for bedwetting?
17 year old Asked by Tennille Deck 1 year ago.

I think I just answered another question of yours but just to address the "safety" issue, since there are some "scary" reports out there (some true, some false) -- it is safe AS LONG as you take it EXACTLY as instructed by your doctor and on the label! DDAVP is a drug that basically works by forcing your body to retain water -- it temporarily "shuts off" the ability of your kidneys to pass water out of the body, which is obviously helpful for not over-filling your bladder at night, but can be a problem if you have too much water in your system otherwise. Usually they will just tell you to limit yourself to a small amount of water intake (8 oz or less) between when you take it at night and the next morning. People have had serious problems when drinking too much water after taking DDAVP because their bodies become "overloaded" with water and it dilutes the vital electrolytes (sodium, potassium, etc.) in their bloodstream to dangerous levels. Another problem is that it also gives some people the feeling of a dry mouth, which makes it tempting to drink water. As long as you don't drink water though, it's really very safe. If any of this is not clear to you, please ask your doctor about it! As a reminder also. DDAVP does not "cure" bedwetting; it just stops your body from needing to urinate at night, but whatever the underlying cause of the bedwetting is (whether it's a problem with the bladder, kidneys, muscles, nerves or whatever) will still be there when the medication is stopped. Lots of people decide that it's not worth it to take the medication every night, but do keep some around to take for things like sleepovers (or any kid of staying away from home when you do NOT want the bed to get wet!) and just wet the bed the rest of the time until their body outgrows it. Really you just have to decide what is the best solution for you, personally -- just be safe and be sure to ask your doctor about any questions or concerns! Answered by Wilda Rozelle 1 year ago.

I left a radio or a fan on and that obviously looked as if it would support matters. I bet the regular noise cancels out whatever unusual sounding while you are first there, as good as turns into a noise they are used to. I'll upload onto this later as it is early and I consider like I'm babbling. Answered by Nigel Seavy 1 year ago.

DDAVP and Zoloft with Alcohol (Bedwetting)?
ALSO How many hours should i stop the intake of liquids completly before bed? Asked by Cleo Gregersen 1 year ago.

So I am 22 (male) and am staying the night with a few buds from my old HS in Tuscon, AZ Tonight and i have always had a constant thing of bedwetting persay since i was a kid the doctor prescribed me DDAVP (Desmopressin) for when i do stay the night somewhere besides my apartment i dont have the embarrassing task of having to tell my friend i wet the sheets or him wondering why im washing them. And again this doesnt happen ALL the time ... Anyways so he said that we ll have a few beers and some of this awesome wine i love so in all ill probably have like 3 bottles of beer and 1-2 cups of my fav wine. And cutting that amount down just wont be an option (haha) anyways i take ZOLOFT (SSRI~Anti Depressant) as well 100mg however i havent taken that in 20 hours and dont plan on taking it till i wake up tomorrow since im drinking.. Is drinking dangerous with DDAVP ?? What advice do you have so i dont wet the bed i know this sounds so kiddish but its a problem that really isolatesme from staying the nite at ppls houses but this time i cant cuz theyve been asking for a get together forever and i cant just drive home cuz its a 3 hr drive and ill be drinksing so thats out of the picture... So any advice on not wetting the bed? And is ddavp dangerous with alcohol? Answered by Glenn Corvo 1 year ago.

Alcohol and caffeine, despite being diuretics (urinary output promoters) don't seem to negate or override the effects of DDAVP™ (desmopressin): "As far as we know, alcohol does not negate the effect of dDAVP. It may slightly increase the rate of disposal but this effect is minimal. In normal people, ethanol produces an increase in urine output by inhibiting secretion of the natural hormone, vasopressin. This effect obviously would not occur with dDAVP." If you're still worried, try minimizing the beers or front-loading them to the early hours of the evening. After 9PM, just sip wine.

My son has been on DDAVP 0,2mg for a couple of months now, the day before yesterday the docter increased it to 0,4mg a day. Is he suppose to drink more water than usuall. and what are the side affects? How long are you allowed to drink that tablet, he is getting it because he wets his bed a lot, he is also on Retalin 30mg for the morning, and retalin 10mg for the afternoon. He is hyperactive and since he's been using the retalin his schoolwork has improved a lot. But in the mornings when he wakes up he is a total other person, he doesn't see you or hear you, he is in a totaly other world but when he gets his retalin he calms down alot. He also get fits, but only when he has a fever or from shock, the docter says it is epeleptic atacks, but he only gets it maybe once a year. Answered by Reina Erspamer 1 year ago.

It is a very sensitive issue. I think the best will be to discuss these things with your doctor as he knows many things about your son that we don't. All the best for your son! Answered by Catalina Price 1 year ago.

these are the questions you should be asking the doctor who is treating your son. you MUST ask questions UNTIL you understand, the docotr is OBLIGED to answer until you understand. it is your SON! Answered by Lindsay Ribb 1 year ago.


Desmopressin (DDAVP) - Fluid Restriction?
I'm going to be taking DDAVP and i was warned about reducing fluid intake. About how much should I be drinking? I usually drink 8+ cups of water. Is that too much? How many cups of water is good? What happens if I drink too much? If it matters, I'm taking the pill form 0.2mg Thanks in advanced. Asked by Shawnta Oleksiak 1 year ago.

People's needs vary and you will have to see what happens when you take the drug. Eight cups of total fluid intake is a good starting point, but this includes the water content of the food as well. Eight cups water in addition to other water sources is probably more than you need. The best guide is your urine color. You're not drinking enough when the urine is yellow or dark and you're drinking too much if the urine is completely clear. One exception is if you are taking vitamin pills. Some multivitamins turn the urine orange or bright yellow The color should be somewhere in between yellow and clear. There's good info at the link. Answered by Quinton Ficke 1 year ago.

Call the doctor who presecribed the drug. 8+ cups is way too much. Why are you being given this drug? That affects what your fluid intake should be. BTW - the 8-cups recommendation is a fiction. About 30 years ago, an article estimated the total daily fluid intake for an average adult as 2 liters. That counted all the liquid that was in food. Unless you're eating dry sand, you get plenty of water from your food. This was a description, not a goal or a recommendation. 2 liters is about 8 cups, and this turned into a mythical recommendation to drink 8 cups. Please talk to your doctor about your fluid intake restriction. Without knowing why you are taking it, I cannot make a recommendation, because the reason makes a difference. Your doctor should explain how to weigh yourself and use your weight to monitor excessive fluid retention. Answered by Farrah Fratrick 1 year ago.
