    Heavy sweating from AD.

    I have two dislocated hips and sweat like crazy from AD and was wondering what drugs would work best to stop my sweating it is ruining my life I can't go anywhere without dripping.

    My suggestion is to try a low dose of amitriptyline (20-30 mg daily) for a few days. I am also taking 50 mg. tramidol every 6-8 hours. The combination is controlling my AD sweating very well.

    How do you know you have dislocated hips? Have you seen a doctor?

    Since you have stated you have dislocated hips, I would think you have had some medical opinion. Have you had any one tell you how to deal with this issue, the pain, the AD?

    AD is nothing to fool with, it is life threatening, so if you are injured (dislocated hips) you need to seek some kind of help.

    Can you tell us more?

    All the best,
    GJ

    ya i'm on 20mg of amitriptyline right now it worked for 2 days now i'm back to sweating heavily. yes i have had x-rays and both hips are dislocated and my doctor doesn't seem to worried. but i know my sweating is from AD because it was not this bad before my left hip got worse. i just want the sweating to stop it's terrible. i just want to know what meds would stop the sweating.

    Try adding some tramidol to your regime. Sometimes combinations increase the effectiveness.

    Just curious - any issues with side effects with tramadol? How long have you been on it?

    Seems to me that adding tramadol and/or other traditional pain medications will work better than meds for nerve pain. Reducing the dislocation pain ==> stops the AD ==> stops the sweating.

    that makes sense to me i'm not sure why my doctor put me on just amitriptyline. i think he wanted to see how a low dose of a light pain med would work so far not great.
