This has got worse over the past year or two and it could be a combination of the menopause and severe anxiety. I'm 55 but the sweat drips down my face even when I'm lying down or still. I've had eczema all of my life and chronic asthma but this sweating is not normal. I've read some pple been put onto oxybutynin which is I used with slight incontinence and dries up mucous membranes but if not heard it used in sweating. It's classed as an anticholinergic effect and can have negative effects such as dry mouth and eyes and cognitive effects as you are older. I've also seen some pple said botox works, others said not. I'm desperate to find some medication to stop this or minimize it as it's unbearable to have wet hair from constantly sweating all of the time. I've asked for HRT in case it is menopause as I've not had periods for over 12 months but Dr's were reluctant to give me them.
If anyone had recently found anything that helps please tell me. I used to be a nurse and I'm now disabled due to lung issues but this is very distressing and wearing me down. Please respond if you have any suggestions. Thanks L.
