Sweating - November 7th 2012, 01:26 AM

Hi :-)

So basically, my anti-depresent which I recently started taking, is used to in mature women to prevent symptoms of the menopause. I'm taking it for my depression and today my doctor told me the symptoms I've been showing are related to this medication and it's basically having the reverse affect and is causing symptoms such as hot flushes which is causing me, some days, to sweat a lot. Some days, I have to wash 6 or 7 times through out the day and change my top half way through the day.

So, any one got any brilliant and top quality, deodorant that works wonders or any ideas on what I can do to try and prevent so much sweating?

I like "Secret" liquid gels. Those work for me best. I get horrible hot flashes during my menstrual cycle. I find the gel does so much better. If you prefer the powder, I do recommend Degree Sexy Intrigue. It is one of my all time favorite powders. It has a strong smell and it usually lasts me a good sweaty workout, plus a few extra hours.

Otherwise, you can ask your doctor for a prescription for deodorant that is generally stronger thank store-bought ones. Also, wearing cotton instead of other materials will help soak up the sweat, as well as let more air in so the air can dry the sweat quicker. Having air blowing on you helps, as well.

Good luck!

I use a product called "Certain Dri". It comes in a few forms. Roll-on for those with more normal skin type and solid for those with more sensitive. Its applied at night but there is an A.M. version. It is scentless so a deodorant can still be applied for scent if desired.

The regular product is a prescription strength antipersperant. It is so strong that after I used it for a few nights to get it to work, I only apply once every other day and I don't sweat where i apply it at all. I mean like heavy activity and crazy dancing for an hour straight, no sweat.

It does come with a cost though. If you have sensitive skin or over apply it can cause burning, itching, and redness. The severity of the reaction depends on application and skin sensitivity though. One roll over each section of the skin is plenty rolling over a spot a few times will cause a reacton.

Everything will be good in the end, if its not good, its not the end.
