Abstract

Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors are indicated in a group of psychiatric disorders in childhood. Data about their use in the treatment of enuresis also exist. Voiding disorders related to their use have been reported. We present five patients in whom bed-wetting was observed during a treatment with a serotonin re-uptake inhibitor with or without risperidone, drawing attention to a possible side effect of this group of drugs.
