Hyperhydrosis
Hey Doc. I'm so frustrated! I'm taking Zoloft (100mg/day) and Xanor (0.5 SR/day) for social anxiety disorder. The meds helps with the condition but not so much for the underarm sweating which is the most annoying part. Someone suggested Perspirex, which I've been useing for 2 months and it helps, still sweat under my arms but less then what I use to. My new problem is that now my hands started sweating. I've got wet palms all day long. I'm so tired of this. Its like the sweating just won't stop. When I try to stop it in one place. it just moves to another. Is there not a pill or something I can take that will reduce sweating all over?
Please help.
Thanks

Hi Max
Try Probanthine tablets. Other option will be to go for a sympatectomy operation.
