> Last night I woke up and my shirt, pillow, and sheets were soaked. This doesn't happen often and isn't a major nuisance. I'm thinking maybe the meds have something to do with it, but on second thought, I can recall times where I had them without being on meds. I read that this could result from diabetes, epilepsy, or hyperthyroidism.
Marc, I get these periodically too. One reason that I don't think you have was menapause but maybe men have type that cause sweating too. Ibuprofen can make me sweat, not just the psychotropic drugs. I get hot flashes during the day sometimes too. I think nightsweats are the nocturnal version of hot flashes. I can only imagine how much any med can effect the endocrine system. But better than the alternative.
