(HealthDayNews) -- Giggle incontinence is the second-most common type of childhood enuresis and has always been very difficult to treat. For a long time, there was nothing to do but tell a child to think unhappy thoughts.
But neurologists at the University of Minnesota Medical School determined that giggle incontinence is caused by a central nervous system problem. They reported in the Journal of Urology that giggle incontinence responds very well to methylphenidate, better known as Ritalin.
Methylphenidate is best known as a treatment for attention deficit disorder, but was originally used as a stimulant.
