    Experience with DDAVP (Minirin)

    I'm in the early stages of putting together a study on the use of DDAVP (Minirin) in long duration dives. The drug is generally used for kids with nocturnal enuresis (peeing the bed), but some divers on long deco skeds are using it off-label to reduce urine output. The advantages are no caths or diapers (who the hell wears diapers?), and maintenance of hydration status (by reducing immersion induced diuresis). There are a few potential adverse effects. I'd like to hear from folks with actual experience, not those with conjectural opinions (as if anybody on a web forum would do that).

    Thanks for your help,

    Kim

    eGFR should not be messed with for recreational use...........period.....

    Get a P-Valve and if you are female, there are products out there for you now.

    Thought I'd said something about wanting actual experience, not conjectural opinions, but with a forum so full of published experts in basic and applied physiology, how could I really expect that? My post was a question, not a recommendation. However, you're right that nobody (recreational, professional or otherwise) should be using any medication not adequately tested in the context for which it will be utilized. But that's sort of TV advert level advice. And when 'should' becomes an imperative that divers actually adhere to, you let me know.

    Still waiting for replies relating actual experience. I guess the general silence answers my question.

    Hello,

    There has been a paper published relatively recently (within the last 5 or 6 years I think) about using the use of one of the "pressins" administered nasally to reduce immersion diuresis in divers. I can't remember where I read it, and I have not got it immediately available in my files. I think it was a paper and not just an abstract. It should be searchable (if you have not already found it). It is possible it was a UHMS abstract.

    Simon,

    Thanks. It was an NMRI paper from 2005. Looked at Desmopressin in relation to immersion diuresis and aerobic capacity.
