In brief: Interested urologist

Find a urologist with interest + expertise in this condition.
Urologist should question possible day time voiding frequency which if more frequent than every 2 hours suggests a small functional bladder capacity. This could respond to long acting anticholinergic medication e.g. Oxybutinin er. ? Anomalous antidiuretic hormone production so more urine is produced at night can respond to desmopressin.

In brief: See urologist

Bedwetting is uncommon in children over the age of 12 and is rare in someone over 18 (1/10, 000 kids).
Treatment includes behavioral modifications, bed/enuresis alarms, medications (ddavp (desmopressin) and others) or a combination. However, it sounds like you have tried many, if not all, of these methods. You should have her evaluated by a urologist.
