Desmopressin is the main active pharmaceutical ingredient present in Minirin tablets. Desmopressin is an antidiuretic. It is considered a type of vasopressin analogue used as a hormone replacement to help balance the amount of water and salt in the body by preventing excessive amounts of water loss through the urine.
Minirin 0.1 mg treats bed-wetting, central cranial diabetes insipidus, and increased thirst and urination caused by head surgery or trauma. It also helps to treat the habit of involuntary urination during the night in children older than 5 years.
Desmopressin is a synthetic replacement version of the natural hormone vasopressin. This medication works by acting on the kidneys to reduce urine production. Minirin helps decrease the urine urge so a patient can live a normal lifestyle. It usually starts working within an hour and lasts 7 to 9 hours.
