Can anyone recommend medications to help control excessive sweating due to med side effects?

That sweating is a miserable thing, especially for women. Is it just an underarm perspiration or on your face, chest, etc? Usually the reason people sweat when on pain meds is because they are not taking their meds at the correct times, ie. you actually start to go through withdrawal, a symptom of which is sweating. If not the case, then there is always the possibility of peri or total menopause causing sweating. Boxtox works for underarm perspiration problems, and most likely can be injected on the face to help also, but of course insurance doesn't cover that and it's very expensive. SO., those are just a few of the reasons you might be experiencing the sweats and since I don't know your situation I can't tell you much more except to say that if it IS a menopausal thing, hormones are probably your only answer for alleviating that.
Maybe take a look at the times you're taking your meds and be sure you're not waiting too long in between doses, following what your Dr. prescribes of course, or talk to him/her and see if the dosing might need to be re-evaluated. Good luck, I know it's miserable, especially when around people. Take care. Dede

I know this reply is coming late, but as a 6 yr user of Morphine SR/IR , sweating is something I have learned a bit about. :)) I find that when the drugs "kick", if I try and do anything the least bit strenuous (cook dinner, load the dishwasher, etc) I burst sweat EVERYWHERE. It is like I am standing in a shower! LOL
I have just learned to keep a hand towel nearby to keep my face dry. No other solutions so far, sorry.
