 5  hyperhidrosis dry mouth and eyes I have suffered with sweaty hands and feet all my life. Socially this has been a tremendous set back. Avoiding hand contact with anyone, anything. I found this actual webpage a few months ago which lead me to ask my doctor about Robinul. This medication has changed my life! I recently was in a wedding and I was able to dance, shake hands...without the embarrassment of constantly wet hands. Anyone suffering from this should give it a try. I have tried many topical things without avail. This has worked for me!!! F 34 1 weeks

 5  Sweating and dizziness I have experienced cotton mouth, blurred vision- corrected with reading glasses. But, most importantly I can go out in public without sweating like an animal for no reason. It's a godsend for me. I can't function normally without it. If you've ever sweated through a shirt just walking into your office you'd understand.

 3  hyperhydrosis I havent had any side effects yet. I have been using Robinul for about a week I have noticed less sweating in my armpits, but my hands, feet and groin area are still not as good as I want them to be. I will still keep using it because its only been a week, so I will keep hoping for better results. But, I also didnt know you should wait to eat before you take the medication, so I will try to see if that will help. F 34 1 weeks

 2  Severe facial hyperhidrosis more sweating It's only my first day taking this, but I am disappointed that the first reaction to the medication is more sweating than before. I hope this is just the initial reaction and that it works as it has for others after I've taken it for a week or so. Otherwise, there's no hope for me. F 33 1 days

 5  generalized hyperhidrosis blurred vision, dry mouth, painful intercourse due to vaginal dryness (this drug dries up your entire body!) This drug has done wonders for me. Though I'm not completely cured of my generalized sweating, it makes life much more enjoyable and helps my self-confidence on a daily basis. My first derm was hesistant to prescribe it saying "the side effects are much worse than sweating" but my second one knew it was one of my last options. Lubrication during sex is a must for me.

 5  hyperhidrosis - face and head sx. of urinary retention...but not bad enough to stop this medication. This medicine has given me back my life. I was close to quitting my job because of embarrassing dripping sweat that causes people to stare and ask if I am OK. It has been so distracting and embarrassing, I wanted to hide and was ready to retire. As soon as I found the right dose (2mg) it was like someone turned off a switch and I was back to normal.

 1  Stomach pain Left me extremely dehydrated for almost 24 hours afterwards, could not drink enough water, cotton mouth, sped up my heart rate Was given to me in the ER, shot my heart rate up to 145. They had to follow it up with a blood pressure medication just so I could sit still again. The cotton mouth and dried-out feeling it left me with for the rest of the day was AWFUL. F 24 1 days

 5  hyperhidrosis - face & head Dry mouth and a mild antidepressant buzz. I also have severe allergies with a lot of pressure in my ears and around my eyes which has eased. Very effective. I have only been taking for 2 weeks. I'm interested in whether your body builds up tolerance over time. F 39 12 days

 5  palmer hyperhydrosis dry mouth, slightly blurred vision I tried this drug when I was about 25 and decided that it did not work and was worried about side effects at the time. I didn't give it a fair chance. I suffered for years with intense sweaty palms, couldn't shake hands without feeling very embarrassed, arm pit sweat was a constant problem, etc. I got botox injections for the arm pits and it worked but I also started using robinul again at the same time. This time around I was not concerned about the side effects. I figured it was worth the risks. WOW!!! it really has changed my life! I look forward to handshakes because my hands are bone dry!! So are my arm pits, face, back etc.. I still sweat when exercising but in a normal way. I cannot figure out why I suffered for decades when the solution was out there?! I am much more social and outgoing and can only wonder how much sweaty palms has affected who I am. If you have not tried it and are planning to, I hope it works as well for you as it did for me ... because it will change your li M 33 1 years

 5  Palmar HH Mild cotton mouth effect It has been the best thing that ever happened for me! After 38 1/2 years of embarrasment, I am finally a new man. No more worries about shaking hands, dating, etc.... Just know your dose by experimenting. I take 1(2mg) pill in the morning and 1(2mg) pill 4 hours later and I am dry all day. Almost did ETS! To really see the effect it probablly took about a week or two, but hang in there, and you can use Drysol in the mean time. M 40 1.5 years

 5  Severe Axillary Hyperhidrosis Slight headache and drymouth for the first couple days. I can't believe I've lived without this for the past 13 years. Robinul has absolutely changed my life. While it's only about 75% effective, that's been enough to make my life 100% better. No longer do I dread going to work on warm days or taking a flight of stairs or socializing with people. The only down side I've noticed (aside from the aforementioned side effects, which are minimal) is that the effectivness of the drug varies from day to day, but according to my Dr. it will stablize in short order. Ask about it, it'll be worth your time 10 fold! M 25 5 days

 5  MENOPAUSAL HOT FLASHES AND NIGHT SW NO SIDE EFFECTS THANK GOODNESS FOR ROBINUL...I WAS ABLE TO SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN AGES. I WAS EXPERIENCING AS MANY AS 20 OR MORE HOT FLASHES IS A 24 HR PERIOD. THE FIRST DAY ON THIS MEDICATION I HAD 1. TODAY IS THE SECOND DAY AND SO FAR I HAVEN'T HAD ANY. I SURE HOPE IT CONTINUES TO WORK LIKE THIS, BECAUSE I REFUSE TO TAKE HORMONES AND I HAVE TRIED ALL THE NATURAL REMEDIES WITH NO SUCCESS. F 2 days

 5  hyperhidrosis The medication worked great for hyperhidrosis. I have experienced some odd side effects that I was hoping some others have experienced. For about two years I have had migraines on the right side of my head, and annoying muscle problems on the right side of my neck and right upper back. I also sometimes had racing heart and unexplained nervous shaking. All of those problems have vanished since beginning Robinul. It's like a godsend. Something was obviously amiss with something involving acetylcholine. Anyone else? M 3 months

 5  Hyperhidrosis None I've suffered with hyperhidrosis all of my life (28 years). This medicine has absolutely changed my life. I can wear clothes without worrying about sweating through them and it helps my sweaty feet as well (along with drysol). I would highly recommmend it to those suffering with hyperhidrosis. F 28

 4  IBS side effects were very minimal, but hard to focus pupils/dizziness, trouble urinating, and got heated really easy, because it minimizes sweating. perscribed 2mg a day, but works fine at 1 mg a day. i normally take it 30 minutes before breakfast and dinner. F 22 3 months

 1  Ulcers - 7 stomach ulcers 48 hours after starting Robinul,I began to experience EXTREME difficulty with URINATING. In fact, at times it seemed almost impossible to go at all. I also began a little bit of itching. I stopped the Robinul then and there. Woke up the next morning covered in a RASH that got worse as the day progressed. By the end of the day I was covered from head to toe. Started Benadryl and that didn't even help one bit. Now, six days later, the rash has not gotten worse - but neither has it gotten better. I am able to urinate normally, but the rash is painfully itchy and not responding to traditional treatment of Benadryl and cortisone creme, so it's off for another costly doctor visit and I guess maybe a round of steroids - which I amleery about with all these ulcers. This drug produced a very bad reaction with me and I take several drugs for anxiety and ulcers. I have never had an allergic reaction to anything. Beware of Robinul. F 49 2 days

 4  Hyperhidrosis In the first few months occasional headaches and dry mouth. Sometimes difficult to focus pupils. Robinul gave me the ability to control my palmer and planter HH. It has literally saved my life and given me the confidence I need to interact socially. The side effects even at their worse were nothing compared to the fact I could write, touch and be "normal" around people. M 17 3 months
