Desmopressin is an antidiuretic hormone. It works by causing the kidneys to produce less urine.
Desmopressin is used for treating nighttime bedwetting. It is also used to manage temporarily increased thirst and urination caused by head injury or certain types of brain surgery, or to manage certain types of diabetes. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
