This common condition can be managed by the general practitioners. The key answer to nocturnal enuresis is nocturnal self-awakening and recently more emphasis is given on this which is an area of greatest promise. Behavioural modification in conjunction with an enuretic alarm also teaches this skill and has the highest cure rate and the lowest relapse rate. Enuretic alarms can be used any time from age 5 onwards. But drugs are only indicated when there is need for short term dryness e.g. when the child has to be away from home.
