This sweating includes night sweats so bad that I have to change pajamas 4 times per night. During the day, these episodes are so severe, that after showering, I cannot dress for at least 2 hours. Sweat drips from my head, down my face,back, and chest. No matter how much I blowdry my skin, I cannot stop sweating. These hot flashes and chills are so horrible that I cannot go anywhere. I have to stay under blankets until the sweating stops. This is completely debilitating. How long will this last? Luckily, I am not working at this time. There is NO WAY anyone could work while suffering from this condition.

I had the exact same problem and my doc put me on this medicine with my suboxone and what it does is it stops those sweating episodes like a miracle. Talk to your doctor about the medicine called "Robinul" 1 mg tablet - the generic name is "Glycopyrrolate" let me tell you IT WORKS!!! I hope this helps and definitely please if it does - let me know how it turns out for you ok!

Well I am on Suboxone (An extremely low dose about 2-3mg a day, which I have weened down to) and I start sweating profusely from anything longer than a short bit of exercise. Like I am walking out of class to my next class.
I walk maybe 200 yards in 80 degree heat,
than about 2 minutes after I get in the AC of the next building I start sweating like crazy!
It really hurts when I am trying to talk to talk to people.
It takes me anywhere from 20-60+ minutes to cool off enough to stop sweating.
Because of it I have to wear flip-flops because it would be mandatory for me to take my shoes and socks off to cool down... I don't know for certain if it is the Suboxone or just my personal genetics but I don't remember having this problem before I was on the Suboxone.
I also have the shower thing too but it's only 30 min or so unless I take a cool shower.
Hope this helps just to know your not the only one

Yes. Emphatically and unequivocally, yes, yes and again yes. I think Suboxone has me between a rock and hard place. The sweating is severe, and I really hate it. I am, however, on it for opioid maintenance therapy and for chronic pain. Without Suboxone, I'm truly afraid that my entire life will fall apart. I know that it sounds crazy to think that sweating could be such a deal breaker, but when it's as severe as you describe and I experience, I have to really think about what I should do. I don't have has big a problem with night sweats. I do have a problem with excessive sweating every time I "exert" myself. And when I type "exert", imagine exertion so minimal that before the sweats started, I would have characterized the activity completely differently. So, after walking down ONE flight of stairs, or, God forbid, walking up one flight of stairs, I'll start sweating, drench a t-shirt, dress shirt and suit coat, and then NOT stop sweating.
It's like my body doesn't know when to sweat and when not to. Like you, I get freezing cold because I'm soaking wet all the time. It's really a problem. Also, like you, it's impossible for me to imagine how anyone could work while dealing with this crippling side effect. I cannot stress this enough: it's a HUGE problem.

I promise you it's a blood pressure medicine but it controls the withdrawals you get frm detox. All new rehabs use that and anxiety pills as an actors help . Dry mouth side effect and nay have to piss a lot.
