  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I spent over half hour entering 11 eleven medications, a couple twice as they are for two conditions. They all disappeared!
    Not happy at moment. Do you have them or not?

    I have ADHD, Depression, classic migraine (since age 5), Fibromyalgia (since 2002)
    Controlled high BP, hypothyroid, mild sleep apnea, slight high Cholestorol,
    irregular heart beat, Reynaudes, and lately some Anxiety. None of these things
    have been a huge problem except fatigue, EXCESS SWEATING I sweat profusely,
    And often times during a hot flash my fingers are freezing and body temp
    Seems to run a little lower.
    and non restorative or restful sleep.

  • I am a 50 year old female who is menapausal. However, the severe hot flashes and flushing is out of control. It is happening about 4 time per hour night and day. Everyone I come in contact with says that it is the most exreme case of "hot flashes" due to menepause they have ever seen. It is ruining my life. I believe that it has to be coming from some of the medicines I am taking. I also am curious if acetomenephen can cause this. Thank you for your help!

    I can tell you from personal experience that Savella can cause EXTREME sweating. It is absolute misery. Can't go anywhere without hair and clothes wet with sweat. Didn't have this problem before taking Savella. My Rheumatologist confirmed it is a side affect from the Savella.
