I have 3 children that wet the bed, One is 8 year old girl, one is 6 year old boy and a 4 year old girl. I had read online that Cal Mag Zinc tablets help stop bedwetting for children. So I decided to try it on my older two. Well, It worked! I went to Walgreens and got a cheapo bottle of Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc. My 8 year old gets 1 1/2 tablets before she goes to bed, My 6 year old gets 1 tablet before he goes to bed. They completely stopped bedwetting and have not wet the bed scince they started the tablets!!!!!

My son has struggled with bed wetting all his life as did his father when he was young (until he was around 15). He is now 7 and this has been a source of embarrassment for him now that he is older. He recently had a strep throat infection that I treated with cayenne pepper (In pill form because he would not take a tea). His strep eased up within two hours of his first dose of cayenne but I continued to treat him for a few days to be sure it didn't come back. After day 3 I noticed he hadn't wet the bed since taking the pills. I gave him one pill twice a day for the strep but have continued to give him just one a day since. It has been several weeks now and he has not had a single accident! He is so proud and excited as we have tried everything.

I wanted to pass this along in hopes that it might help other kids with a similar issue. Just FYI he wet the bed almost every single night prior to the cayenne. I do suggest taking it halfway through a meal as it may burn a bit on an empty stomach.
