Enuresis alarm: Enuresis can persist into young adulthood and is usually familial. It can be quite frustrating for affected people. First line prevention is avoiding liquids after 6 pm and voiding before bed. Enuresis alarms are devices that attach to the waistband and vibrate when the bladder contracts, and DDAVP is a medication (oral or nasal spray) which are other treatment options. I hope this helps!
