Question: I would like to know if incontinence or pants wetting has ever been
reported, or shown with the use of Dexadrine. My daughter was put on
Dexadrine at the age of four, and was going through potty training at
the same time. She has just turned six, and still has a problem with
wetting her pants during the day, when the medication is being taken,
she takes two doses a day of 5 mg each, one in the morning, and one
about 5 hours later. She however does not have a problem with wetting
her pants at night, when the medication's strength is not as severe,
which leads to this question. Any information you can give me about
this issue would be greatly appreciated.
