What Can Be Done To Help Me With The Problem?

What Can Be Done To Help Me With The Problem?

It starts on the back of head neck area. The droplets begin to start running down my back. I hate it. It makes me so self conscious. I want to scream and go hide from everyone.

In the same boat. After refusing Gabapentin. I literally gave the nurse the suggestion from pharmacist Glycopyrrolate on the phone yesterday. My doctor closed at noon today and I haven't received a call back about the suggestion. The pharmacist couldn't see why he prescribed Gabapentin for sweating either. I read Oxybhtinin also Ditropan over the counter helps. Checked today Walmart today the patch is $16.00 they didn't carry the pills. Pharmacist said pills are cheaper. I'm going to check online prices. This medication says it's for help with bladder control. I'm gonna get something for this if it's the last thing I do. I won't give up.

There are 2 other medications that I know of. One is called Oxybutinin, the other is Robinul. They are used "off label" for hyperhidrosis.

I thought the gabapentin was for nerve damage. I stopped taking it sometime ago. If you are given another suggested medicine let me. Thanks

I mentioned the problem to my doctor but she is not doing anything to help my situation. I am not a happy person.
