Yes: 25 mg would also not be too much providing child does not experience side effects such as nightmares, cofusion or excessive dryness of mouth, headaches, costipation etc.. Have you tried, and is your child mature enough to use a bedwetting alarm? This is the most effective curative treatment for bedwetting and effective in up to 70% of kids if used correctly.
