  • From this study (23 hours ago):

  • I've been on antidepressants for 17 years. Various types but been on Setraline for about 4 years. Have had sudden urge incontanence for years on and off but now I seem to wet the bed 2-3 times per week. If I drink any alcohol then it nearly a definate that i would wet the bed. I just wondered if it could have anything to do with the medication I'm on?
