 5  Excessive Sweat First day excessive dry mouth but now I have a mouthful of water and drop the tablet into my mouth making sure the tablet does not touch my mouth Lifesaver as I previously had Botox for under my armpits however this was cut on the NHS and did not help the other areas that were prone to sweating- hands, feet, back and neck Pro Banthine has worked very well for me F 37 28 days

 4  Sweating I take 30mg in the morning on an empty stomach and it works for about 4 hours. It's the best thing I have tried as I've tried oxybutin and it didn't work. I do get a really dry mouth so I don't eat like toast for breakfast because I cannot swallow it easily. I usually take another 30mg in the afternoon too F 19 3 weeks

 4  Cranio facial hyperhidrosis Eyes and skin feel dry. Slight headache. A bit tired at end of day Took it 20 years ago and was effective before becoming not so. Moved to Oxybutynin which is a bit hit and miss. After 15 years have tried Probanthine again but only for a few days so far. Has seemed go well again and the fact you feel the skin tightening and eyes drying actually gives you confidence. Looking forward to see how it goes but will take note of other people's advice about taking on an empty stomach. M 50 2 days

 5  I have extreme hyperhidrosis Only side effect I had was on really hot days if the tablet worked too good I could not sweat at all and the blood would rush to my face untill almost purple. Long term use had effected my eyes, and left me with sore red and sunken eyes. My blood pressure is increased after taking a tablet. I have been taking the tablet for over 17 years. I was told it does not cross the blood brain barrier and i tried various tablets like catapess which had no effect on reducing my sweating and just put me to sleep. I was first prescribed 6 tablets 2 times a day but have worked out this is excessive and doesn't work. 1 tablet in the morning on an empty stomach works best. Takes about 45 mins to kick in and sometime I can feel tingles in my hands when it starts. This has saved my life massively. Although with exercise or hot days U will still sweat it's made sweating normal or controllable for the most part. If your going out at nightime I would suggest another tablet about an hour before you get ready cause you can still sweat in your going out clothes If the morning tablet has worn off. Usually I can last the whole day on one tablet but in social situations sweating can make you worry and it makes you sweat even more. So always carry a tablet in your pocket. I usually get 200 tablets with 5 repeats but when U get into the rythem you might only need 2 or 3 purchases per year which is about $25 - $32 AUD a purchase depending on your chemist. Any questions feel free to email me. M 37 17 years

 5  Cranial hyperhidrosis No major side effects, other than the really really dry throat and mouth. I pop my tablet now into a jelly sweet and make sure the tablet is well covered. Seems to help not actually allowing the tablet to touch the inside of my mouth. F 51 3 weeks

 5  Hyperhidrosis Dry mouth, noticeable abdominal pain/cramps, mild constipation, sometimes hard to pee Suffered with HH since I was a child, was told by drs/nurses nothing they could do, till one good dr. The tablet has been a saviour, its nice to not walk around with soaking wet under garments and be uncomfortable. Most effective on an empty stomach and go as long as you can without. I put the cramps down to being a woman... you know but thinking its more likely the medication, currently sat with heat on my stomach to ease the pain. Will soon ring the drs, but if they say to stop taking this then i wont. id rather put up with the abdominal pain and dry mouth to be sweatfree! F 23 2 years

 5  Hyperhidrosis Dry mouth and a mild headache. I have been using pro banthine for over 5 years now, and I really cant imagine my life without it. I suffer from a severe case of hyperhidrosis and I literally drip of sweat in the hotter summer months, ever since my doctor prescribed pro banthine my life has changed for the better. I am now able to do things I neva used to do like going out in public on a hot day and playing sports. Yes its does give me a dry throat and a mild headache but that's a small price to pay for the amazing results it gives you. I take 1 pill a day, first thing in the morning when I wake up on the really hot days I take 2 and it works wonders keeps me dry all day long, I've got my confidence back and would definitely recommend it to anyone who suffers from hyperhidrosis.

 4  Hyper hydrosis Very dry mouth, dry skin, drowsiness This only works when I take it on an empty stomach. I try and hold of eating for as long as possible as food reduces it's effectivness. It makes it really difficult to eat because my mouth becomes severely dry. I only take it when I have to go out to social events, because facial and hand sweating increases my anxiety pains. It makes me feel a bit sleepy. It doesn't completely stop my underarm sweating, but it does reduce it by half. I would like to know how to counteract the dry mouth, pharmacy oral liquids do not help me with this. But I'd rather have dry mouth than sweat like I do without pro banthine. F 23 6 months

 5  Cranial Hyperhidrosis The worst side effect is a dry mouth, at times difficulty walking and a croaky voice, sometimes loss of voice. I have to say the side effects are minimal to have a more normal life again. Pro-banthine has completely changed my life. F 66 15 years

 4  Excessive sweating Dry mouth, difficulty eating. I canít stress enough the importance of taking this drug on an empty stomach and not eating for a good hour afterwards. I take it first thing in the morning and leave it as long as I can before having breakfast where I find it works really well for most of the day. There have been times Iíve taken it near a meal and it dramatically reduces the effectiveness. Itís not that you canít eat for it to be effective but more that you should first take it on a completely empty stomach. I donít take it everyday- only as and when I need it. So if Iíve been invited out for dinner or going somewhere new. I get really bad anxiety sweating so thatís the kind of situation which would set me off so it really helps. The only downside is the dry mouth which is especially annoying when youíve gone out to a restaurant but Iíd take a dry mouth over sweating excessively at a dinner table in front of a load of people any day! Feel free to contact me if you have questions- Iím all for hearing about any other tips to defeat HH too! F 27 10 days

 5  Hyperhidrosis I have experienced extreme sweating from my head since I was approx 17....some 43 years. It seems to have worsened in the past few years to the point where it was limiting the activities I could undertake. My hair would be dripping with sweat and I looked as though I had had a shower! Absolutely embarrassing when in public...and it has ruined many a holiday. My poor husband has been through hell! I was prescribed this wonder drug two weeks ago. At first, the excessively dry mouth and very red face made me think that the drug would not be for me but I have stuck with it (though only take as and when it is very hot or when I am e.g. golfing or gardening) and these side effects are definitely lessening. I wish I had discovered this drug 40 years ago ( not available then...I know!) as I can see it will be transformational for me. The one thing I am struggling slightly with is a dry left eye as I wear contact lenses but this will hopefully improve over time. I drink much more than previously to eradicate the dry mouth but that has been good for me as I didnít drink nearly enough previously. No constipation because of this. Would highly recommend if you want your life to be changed for the better. F 60 2 weeks

 4  Hyperhidrosis I started this a year ago but stopped immediately after it gave me a dry mouth however I have started again and eat one in the morning one hour before breakfast and i donít sweat on my hands at all but I need to keep takin These to see if they work when I am anxious as well. Side effects are that you get a dry mouth and a sore throat, I am also losing my voice but I can tell that day by day the side effects are getting less so hopefully these side effects will go within time. I noticed not much people had this but I also have a big appetite and eat quite a lot which is a big negative especially if your watching your weight. F 18 5 days
