Reviews for Oxybutynin to treat Hyperhidrosis

Review by MISS MOPPET (taken for 1 to 6 months):

User Rating:  

I have been on Oxybutynin for hyperdydrosis since September of 2013. It has changed my life. I went to Mexico this past December and was amazed at how much less was sweating I had. Prior, I was becoming a recluse as it was so embarrassing to go out in public. My air conditioner ran non-stop all summer! Every now and then I "break" out in a sweat, but it is mild and not a big deal. The one side effect I have with it, is that `after taking 2 x 5mg a day I get extremely tired and feel kind of like I am "out of it". I now take it at bedtime, as it actually helps me fall asleep quicker (I had terrible insomnia as well). Mouth is very dry, but it has forced me to increase my water intake, which is good anyway. This is such a relief!

I started using this on September 2010, and it has been the solution I thought I'd never find. Over sweating even during winter, was such a embarrassing thing in public situations, sweaty palms, on my face and on other areas of my body. Yes, there are side effects, it makes my mouth and other areas including my skin very dry. I increase my liquid intake, and chew a gum now and then to counteract the total dryness. Along with using a regular lotion like cocoa butter before bed. It also causes a bit of dizziness and zombie like feeling which taking a 2x 5mg begins about an hour after. To overcome this I just time it into my schedule where I don't anticipate doing anything of significant or demanding. This will probably sound strange to someone who does not suffer from over sweating, but for those that do, it is a worthy sacrifice.

I have been on this medication for about a month and I am so thankful for it! I am on another medication that causes me to sweat excessively; so bad that it was interfering with my daily life. My doctor wrote me a script for oxybutynin 5mg and it has worked so great to help me not sweat so much. I don't have bladder issues, but its great for people who have major sweating problems!
