- Blepharospasm caused by zolpidem
Used for three years before I started to develop blepharospasm.
- 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.
- Heavy sweating during sleep
Pain killers like Tylenol 3, vicodin 20 years, Valium and Soma 12 years. Sweat heavy during sleep.

- I need advise, badly ckd!! (1 response)
The orthostatic BP started in mid April, I was only dizzy upon wakening then it would subside. I have never been a big breakfast eater so I started doing that. We were in Disney later in April and I was extremely fatigued, to the point of not wanting to walk, Disney would be the first time I passed out when getting dizzy. I of course said I had gotten too warm and was exhausted from work the previous week. The dizziness continued in the mornings & I passed out several more times. On May 1st, I passed out while putting my make-up on and hit my eye on the faucet and head on the tile floor, despite that I went to work thinking it would subside, it didn't. I went to the ER directly after work. They ran a B-met on me and my GFR was 11 and creatinine 3.95. They admitted me to a larger hospital for evaluation. While in there, they pumped me with fluids continuously, saying I had severe dehydration. My kidney function improved, my creatinine levels went back down to 1.34. After 5 days I was discharged and told to see a cardiologist and endo. The endo doc cancelled my appointment on the basis it was not his area. I had had a cortisol and ACTH testing which I guess was normal. I saw the cardiologist, who said it wasn't cardio. I had had an echocardiogram in the hospital and EKG monitoring. Cardio sent me to neurology, the PNRN did a basic neurological exam and drew blood for disease markers such as Lupus, sjorgens, hepatitis, ect. All disease markers came back negative, but my GFR was at 11 again and creatinine was 4.25, BUN 50 along with an elevated ACE level. They called me and said I sarcoidosis. I really don't have any of the primary S/S of this autoimmune disease. I don't know where to go from here, they are referring me to another neurologist at a bigger hospital. I can't live my normal life, can't walk on my feet due extreme pain and I pass out at least 2x a week, which is not good for my old body. My BP upon laying and sitting runs like 117/72, upon standing it drops to like 70/50-50/30. I am on 0.1 mg of florinef, I tried increasing it but then my legs swelled up for a gain of 23#. I talked to Mayo Clinic today and all there specialists are booked out thru December. I have to be able to work, I can't stay home any longer than September 8th! Please advise me!

Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
Excessive sweating on face, head, back, shoulders, stomach and under arms regardless of temperature or physical activity. Clothes become soaked within minutes. High temperatures are unbearable. Decreasing dosage of generic amphetamine salts only improves symptoms somewhat. Question if alternate ADHD medication (Vyvanse, etc) would have any positive effect by reducing the sweating?
From this study (5 years ago):
Was on Lexapro 20 mg for two years. Was then told to try Cymbalta 30 and work up to 60mg. I did, and I felt GREAT. Only thing was I noticed tightness in my back and chest occasionally....then I was put on Adderall for my distraction/avoidance in getting things done. Noticed right away that the cymbalta and adderall should probably not have been given together. I sweat a LOT more than ever, and now my skin itches, even my scalp. It's very annoying. Plus the dry mouth and bad taste......I don't know if I want to continue on either of these drugs. Isn't there something that works like Cymbalta minus the side effects???
From this study (6 years ago):
My toes have turned purple and I am getting bruises. I take 240 mg of Geodon, 80 mg of adderall, 120 mg of cymbalta, 6 mg of xanax, 10 mg of ambien daily. I am worried about diabetes.
