  • DDAVP & Interstim

    After my Interstim results weren't that good (only helped a little), my uro started me on DDAVP (often used for bed wetters to slow down kidneys at night). I've tried DDAVP before, and didn't like it because it made it really difficult to start a stream when I got up at night, and it would really wake me up. This time it's totally different & not doing that, so I'm wondering if it's because I have the Interstim now.

    Anyone else try DDAVP? What did you think of it? Did it help long-term?

Hypoglycemia '07. Perimenopausal at 37, menopause at 45. Pituitary & adrenal failure. Osteopenia. Grade 3 sacral fracture by S3-S4 at age 12, healed 14mm out of place.

        Here is a link to a drug index about DDAVP.,...|DDAVP,00.html

        It is supposed to reduce the amount of urine produced and make it more concentrated.

        I have never tried it before. I wish you luck with it this time around.
