Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 hours ago):
It only occurs at the beginning of a workout and lasts maybe a minute then stops. Never happened before during a workout, only since I've taken Benicar.
From this study (8 hours ago):
About 9-10 months ago I began using marijuana everyday. After about 4 months I quit using and immediately began experiencing night sweat where I would have to change my night clothes 1-2 times a night. After a month of night sweats I began using marijuana again and the night sweats were immediately reduced by about 95%, only minor sweating around the collar. I quit using again the day before yesterday and I immediately experienced night sweats (last night) where I had to change my clothes twice.
From this study (8 hours ago):
About 9 months ago I began using marijuana everyday. After 4 months I quit using but that night I began having night sweats. The night sweats caused me to change my bed clothing 1-2 times per night. After a month of night sweats I began using marijuana again and the night sweats were reduced by about 95%, only slight sweating around the collar was evident. I quit again and the very next night I had to change my clothes twice.
