Sweating Profusely
I just experienced something weird. I have been taking 12mg daily (8 in the a.m. and 4 in the evening).

I just finished melting my evening dose and I started to sweat. Nothing else. Just sweating profusely. This lasted a few minutes and then stopped as quickly as it started.

Has anyone else ever experienced something like this?

Jasel I completely understand what and how you are feeling. Yes, it happens to me alot. No big deal. I never even mentioned it to my Dr. If it continues give your doctor a call to put your mind at ease. How is everything else going for you jasel??? I am in my 5th month and it is getting easier and easier each month. Take care of yourself. Linda

Sorry, but get used to it. My body temp is constantly off! And I'm down to .5mg I never remember feeling "off" in my body temp before opiates, unless I had the flu.

Hi jasel, for some people who get the sweats, they dissipate as they lower their dose.

You can do a search for sweat and there will be alot of posts.
Here's one thread with a bunch of responses:

I've had isssues with body temperature swings, real or perceived, but this never happened to me before in my 2+ years on Sub.

I guess some switch in my brain decided to misfire and opened the taps. If it happens again, at least I'll know not to freak out. Although my dose has stayed the same for a few weeks, the thought 'precipitated withdrawal' crossed my mind when it happened.
