In brief: Bed-wetting alarm

First try restricting evening fluids + waking after 2 hours in bed, then bed-wetting alarm for at least 6 weeks.
If still wetting, try desmopressin (ddavp) to reduce nocturnal urine production, 2 tabs and up to 3 tabs/night for 2 weeks at highest dose. Then combine with alarm if necessary. Medication to increase functional bladder capacity can be tried next(oxybutinin er, Detrol (tolterodine) la etc) good luck.
