Does anyone have night sweats when taking Klonopin?

I recently started talking klonopin, on an as needed basis. Anxiety wakes me up around 3am, so I take it. By 5am, I am calm but sweating excessively. I flood myself with fluids, so I don't get dehydrated. The sweating lasts for about 6 hours. I think klonopin is the reason.
Does anyone else have this issue? I didn't see sweating as a side effect listed.
I have for 10 years been taking Clonazepam. Went from 3mg to 0.75mg. Have started having soaky night sweat around the same time I started this medicine. Doctor's keep telling me that they know what causing the sweats. Maybe menopause. But I'm 74 years old. Had Hysterectomy back in 1984. What can I do to stop these annoying sweats. Have to change my bed every day.
Yes, yes, yes! I have the same problem. It seems that klonopin gets involved in the HPA axis and you make less cortisol which is what keeps your blood sugar up at night. Do your sweats happen about 3 a.m.?
Hello mograce1. I looked and looked and found nothing on night sweats. I even found side effects related to taking Klonopin that were reported but not taken into account on a percentage since they in such a minority. Such as klonopin does cause a toothache, sneezing, sinus, swelling of feet, thinning of hair, etc. Just wondering if you have the sweating on a regular basis. If so, it very well could be the Klonopin. You might mention it to your doctor. Good health and wishes,pledge
