epilepsy and bedwetting

My son has absence seizures and takes Depakote, he has always been a bed wetter, He is now 14 and it seems to be getting worse. He takes DDAVP for the bedwetting, it decreases it but won't make it go away. Does anyone else have this problem with their children or if you have epilepsy is this normal? Any suggestions on how to make the bedwetting stop?

" I've had absence seizures my entire life and the only time I've ever wet myself was during a seizure. It's possible that he could be having seizures at night and with grand mal seizures wetting is more common. I would get a video monitor to put in his room that way if there was any seizure activity you could be aware. I know that nocturnal seizures are common in people with epilepsy. "

" Also would like to add that everyones epilepsy effects them differently so what was specific to me may not be to your son. Best of luck. "
