In brief: Happens to some

Increasing the dose may help, unless your child or you, if you are the patient, are taking what I have found to be a maximal effective dose of 0.
6mg (3 x 0, 2mg tabs). An other approach is to try a bed wetting is to use a bedwetting alarm in combination ddavp, (desmopressin) then try and taper DDAVP (desmopressin) after at least 14 consecutive dry nights have been achieved. Good luck.
