Also try behavioural modification like positively reinforcing and encouraging him when he doesnt bed wet for a day. Add a monthly chart to note the frequency of bed wetting. Behavioural therapies go a long way in such children.

Don't give him water, coffee or tea after 6 in the evening... Only sips of water after having dinner. Wake him up deliberately after 2hrs of sleep and make him void urine. Continue this, he will stop bed wetting..
