Eliminatory disorders e.g. Eneuresis (bedwetting) and .Encoparosis (soiling) are not uncommon in children. The usual conservative treatment comprising of explanatory psychotherapy, counselling and the medication of drugs such as Tricyclic antidepressants (Imipramine or Amibuptylene) or a behavioural approach like a conditioning apparatus, has so far not provided convincing therapeutic results. In this brief controlled study, 10 cases of Eliminatory disorders (nine patients exhibiting Nocturnal Eneuresis, and one case of Encoparesis) were given anticonvulsant (Suthiane Ospolot) which resulted in significant improvement.
