    I've been on the same dose for years now but not experienced sweating as a side effect. I can't lay my hands on a drug leaflet either, but the problem with those things is they warn you about everything. You might just have a bug. Check the leaflet, or perhaps there's something about it online. Dreamdaisy

    Hi Handsy,

    I've been on sulpha since January - can't say I've noticed any increased sweating, but in the first month I did experience some nausea and headaches. Thankfully that has all passed - I hope the same happens with you.

    Hi John

    Not my med sorry, but I too find this such a help - thought I would back you up on that one :wink:

    Brilliant site and brilliant people.

    Hi John, I took Sulpha for years. Don't remember the sweating but had shocking headaches and nausea for first few weeks until my body got used to the drug. No probs with it after that tho'. I do know though that some of the drugs do mention sweating as a side effect so might be worth checking the drug info. Hope you feel better soon. Love Tilly x
