I suggest that you ask your Doctor or call the Pharmacist where you had the Prescription filled. They can be very helpful too. Good luck. Let us know what happens.

Oh, I understand completely. I have sweats worse now than I ever did going through the big M! Frankly, I find that it is triggered by certain meds. For me, SNRIs like Wellbutrin, or the Savella I cannot live without cause this nasty side effect. I carry clips and have let my hair grow so I can pull it up. Have you started new meds? It got so bad with me that I went to my pCP, who didn't understand and prescribed prescription anti-perperant...he thought I didn't use it! There is a scientific name for it, but can be a side-effect with many drugs that we typically take for fibro. In many cases, it will get better over a few months. But, talk with your doctor. Let us know if he/she gives you any advice or method to help.
