What Is DDAVP Used For?
DDAVP (Desmopressin) is a medication which is similar to hormone vasopressin (an antidiuretic
) in our body and helps to temporarily reduce the amount of urine produced by the body. This medication is used in some type of diabetes insipidus (a condition that passes frequent passing of urine), bedwetting, and excessive thirst or frequent passing of urine caused due to surgery. This medication helps to reduce the amount of urine that you make. The result is that your bladder (where urine is stored) does not fill as quickly, thus preventing frequent urination and reducing symptoms of thirst. DDAVP has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of Bleeding disorders.
What Are The Possible Side Effects Of DDAVP?
The most common side effects of DDAVP include a headache, nausea, mild abdominal cramps, nasal congestion, rhinitis, facial flushing, nasal irritation, stuffy nose, and nosebleed. Some uncommon side effects include dizziness, feeling of cold, wheezing, rashes, swelling in the face and hands, constipation, confusion with or without fits, anorexia (obsession with thinness generally sought through self-starvation), increased appetite, conjunctivitis, and aftertaste in the mouth, emotional problems in children and allergic skin reactions. These are not all the possible side effects of DDAVP. In case of any unexpected effect, consult your healthcare professional.
