Normally this happens when we have improper diet, have stressful schedule, drink too much beverages, less sleep or may be lack of sound sleep.
It is necessary at this point to pay attention
1. to have NUTRITIOUS diet.
2. to drink sufficient water.
3. to go to the bed on time so can have 6-8 hrs rest
4. Most important Meditiate. "Mindfullness in plane English" a book can help properly in this case.
5. Please choose slow but permanent solution rather than seeking tablets mostly sleeping pills as quick solution.

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?
