  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
  • Hydrochlorothiazide made me pour sweat
    Hydroclorothiazide made me absolutely pour sweat for two years. My doctors could not find out what was causing the problem. It took little exertion for me to start dripping sweat. My hair would be absolutely soaked...especially in the summer, but if I was cleaning house in the winter also. I finally did my own research and proposed to my doctor that HCTZ was the problem. He did not agree with me, but agreed to let me go off of it for a short time. The profuse sweating stopped almost immediately.
  • Metoprolol tartate* bad side effects
    This drug caused me to gain 25 pounds, it caused depression, exhaustion, vivid dreams, joint pain, personality changes, I walk/jog frequently and could no longer jog at all. At one point I had vision problems, things would "jump" so badly that I couldn't drive (I am not sure what that was, they said whatever it was it was not my eyes. Confusion, memory problems. I think my infrequent SVTs were made worse. It made my life a living hell. My children finally said that if I didn't do something they would! I found a new Dr. and I was taken off of it and a review of all my original cardiac tests came back totally normal and I didn't need it anyway. And the only way I would ever take this medicine is if it were a last resort. There are other drugs that would have worked that have a lot less side effects. A cardiac nurse told me that Metoprolol is one of the worst for side effects. My husband has serious heart issues and was put on this med..I have noticed a lot of the same changes in him and I will work to have them change his medication also.
  • Bone infections involving my teeth crohns and prednisone over the past 12 years
    Dentist [2] tell me the abscesses are in the bones and I've had several root canals, bridges, bone surgeries that last 3 years, teeth became so mobile after the bone economy I had them pulled and now a partial one month ago. Bone loss etc. I don't have the ridges in my mouth that most Crohn patients have. Appears to affect the upper teeth.
    Crohns diagnosed at the age of 39. Moderate to severe.
    Dentists state the problem is the use of prednisone and having Crohn.
  • Ideopathic hypersomnia from mantle cell lymphoma
    I have an unusual idiopathic hypersomnia surrounded by the circumstance of also having Mantle Cell Lymphoma. I awake each day at around 7:00 am without an alarm after 7-8 hrs sleep. By 8:00 am after a cup of coffee and breakfast, I feel fully awake and 100% normal.

    Around Noon and 12:30, I begin to feel sleepiness coming on. This is nothing like the mid-afternoon low many people experience. A cup of coffee or a little fresh air do nothing.

    By 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm, I feel deeply drugged (like I've taken Ambien) and need to sleep. I sleep 3-4 hours of fairly deep sleep (I don't hear the phone or someone at the door). I have vivid dreams near the end of the nap and about half the time I have auditory hallucinations at the beginning or the end of the nap (I generally don't have these at night).

    When I awake, I feel like it's morning again and need a cup of coffee to get me going again. For the rest of the evening, I feel about 80% of morning alertness and energy levels.

    I go to bed at about 10:30 every night. It takes me about 15 - 20 minutes or so to fall asleep. I get up once a night to urinate, due to slight incontinence from prostate brachytherapy. I generally fall right back to sleep. Even when I sleep more or less than average, or go to bed significantly later than normal, I still feel the 1pm sleepiness at the same time and in the same duration.

    I have tried Nuvigil and it works well enough for me to stay awake during the afternoon if absolutely necessary. I'm feel about 70% of normal, but don't sleep well that night and don't feel fully rested or awake the next day. If I force myself to stay awake, the intense sleepiness goes away around 4:00pm - I feel sluggish but do not need to sleep until my normal bedtime.

    HISTORY:

    Diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma in June of 2013. I noticed worsening early afternoon sleepiness up to six months before diagnosis. After diagnosis, I gradually became more sleepy and began needing naps of 1/2 hour to 1 hour. By the time I began treatment for MCL (Oct 2012, I was sleeping in excess of 4 hours every day despite getting a good night's sleep. This and the increasing size of my spleen were the determining factors for beginning treatment. During 6 months of chemotherapy (Rituxan/Bendamustine every 4 weeks) I continued to have these naps. After achieving full remission, I received high dose chemo followed by an autologous stem cell transplant in May of 2013. About a month after the transplant, when I gained a little strength back, I needed only a light nap of 30-45 minutes, but gradually the heavy naps returned to the current 3 hr/day level, despite my strength and endurance returning to nearly normal levels. My nighttime sleep pattern has not changed significantly all this time.

    I had an Overnight sleep study that showed no significant apnea, but because I didn't sleep normally at the center, the test was inconclusive. It was followed by an MSLT which showed that I did not have narcolepsy (no early REM). I was then prescribed an auto-PAP machine for three weeks to check my sleep hygeine at home. Minimal apnea was noticed, and most of the episodes were from my changing position triggering a boost in the PAP pressure. I slept significantly worse because of this.

    Because of the clockwork nature of the daytime sleepiness and the correspondence with my lymphoma, I would like to investigate an endocrinological source for my idiopathic hypersomnia but the sleep centers here in Wilmington are not equipped to handle this investigation.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • Can't get to sleep, legs hurt or twitch. Once asleep I move all over the bed. I often sleep during the day for several hours with no sign of neuropathy, but often malaise. But as soon as I go to bed it all comes back.

    Blood sugar level is normal. I had an earlier bout of iron deficiency anemia that was cured with infusions about 6 months ago. But after that the neuropathy and insomnia started and grew stronger and stronger over time. I am mostly anxious and frustrated that I can't get to sleep, and that when I am awake, I have no drive or energy.

  • It seems that I have a problem with excessive sweating and I'm trying to determine if Xarelto is the cause.
