As much as Robinul has been claimed to be a miracle drug, it doesn’t come without ANY drawbacks. In this article you’ll hear the pros and cons to determine if this is YOUR solution for getting the excessive sweating under control once and for all.
Let’s start with the name of the drug. After all, if you think this is your next step to curing the relentless sweating, you’ll want to mention it to your dermatologist by name.
You can reference the drug as either Robinul or its more generic name, Glycopyrrolate.
Robinul works by reducing the secretions of certain organs in the body. These secretions aren’t just limited to your perspiration. It will also reduce your saliva and mucus in the lungs, nose and stomach. As you can imagine, dry mouth and dehydration are the biggest complaints among patients.
The drug was originally formed to control stomach ulcers by reducing stomach acid. Lucky for you, the reduction of excessive sweating was a nice little side benefit.
It’s not perfect though. There are a whole host of unpleasant side effects that you’ll be sacrificing in order to turn your sweat faucets off. They include…
• headache, dizziness, or lightheadedness;
• weakness or nervousness;
• blurred vision, large pupils, or sensitivity of the eyes to bright light;
• nausea, bloating, heartburn, or constipation;
• changes in taste;
• difficulty urinating;
• decreased sweating; or
• nasal congestion, stuffiness, or a dry mouth.
Sounds a little rough, huh?
Sorry if I sound like a drug commercial here, but I want to give you all the disclaimers before I tell you the actual results…
If you plan on taking Robinul, may sure you’re not driving or operating machinery. It can cause drowsiness, dizziness and blurred vision. You CAN NOT drink alcohol while taking it (remember the dehydration I mentioned earlier?). Also, it can cause overheating.
You’ll want to skip this drug if you’re pregnant, have high blood pressure or any history of heart disease as well.
Are you thoroughly disinterested yet? Well hold your horses because I haven’t told you the good part.
Robinul WORKS! If you can put up with all the other side effects, you’ll be ecstatic with the results.
Bottom line - You will feel a significant difference in the level of sweat your experience if you even sweat at all.
Have I used it personally? No. I’m not all that comfortable when I’m COMPLETELY dry or even over dry. I’ve used natural treatments to stifle my own sweating. However, millions of others have tried Robinul and can’t say enough good things about the results.
Here are some anonymous comments from patients who have been using the drug.
I've been taking Robinul for a little over a half a year and the results have been impressive. I started with Hyperhidrosis (Of the hands, feet, face, and trunk) during adolescence and it only got worse as time went on. I started dosing on Robinul at 1mg twice a day, morning and night. It was fairly effective from winter into spring but summer made that dosage fairly ineffective. During Summer I needed to increase to about 3mgs a day, and while it's very helpful, I still sweat sometimes. I still recommend this drug for anyone with mild Hyperhidrosis. For anyone who can't find the right dosage, you're just going to have to weigh the pros and cons and decide from there.
This was the "miracle drug" I was looking for. I have moderate-severe general Hyperhidrosis. Iontophoresis was not helping. After seeking Botox for my hands, as they are by far the worst, this was prescribed instead. What a difference! My hands haven't been dry in over five years. It's only been a week, and I may look to up the dose to help with facial and plantar sweating (which has been reduced but not as much). Side effects are completely tolerable and much better than the discomfort I faced from the extreme palmar HH.
I've only been taking it for a week- 1mg twice a day. It has helped a little. Not an extreme difference though. I may decide to up the dosage. One drawback is that I haven't really been able to wear my contacts because it makes my eyes so dry. I definitely experienced some serious headaches. Also, dry mouth was a bit of a problem but I just popped some sucking candies in my mouth to alleviate the annoyance.
You can see that although these three patients had mostly positive experiences, adjusting dosage and putting up with constant side effects were definitely factors.
So, what do I recommend?
I err on the cautious side when it comes to medicine. Especially because Robinul comes with a whole bunch of other caveats and side effects I haven’t mentioned in this article. I don’t want to scare you away completely.
I recommend that you take the time to try every other natural solution first. If you haven’t tried every conceivable fix you’re not ready to take the plunge with Robinul. I mean everything, including prescription deodorants, sage tea solutions, facial sweating wipes, specific diet supplements, cleansing drinks, herbal remedies and so many others.
It can be overwhelming but don’t get lost in all the trial and error.
