INTRODUCTION

MINIRIN 0.2MG contains desmopressin which belongs to the group of medicines called synthetic antidiuretic peptide. It is used to treat diabetes insipidus (a condition with extreme thirst and continuous production of large volumes of dilute urine). It can also be used to treat primary nocturnal enuresis (bed wetting from the age of 5) and nocturia in adults up to 65 years (night-time urine production exceeding bladder capacity).

Desmopressin works by reducing the amount of water that is eliminated in the urine. It enhances the reabsorption of water in the kidneys. Avoid drinking large amounts of water or fluid during this medication that leads to a build-up of water resulting in dilution of the salt in the body and may cause a serious problems or convulsions.

The most common side effect of taking this medicine are headache, stomach pain swelling of ankles.
