Has anyone experienced having night sweats while on this drug?? I seem to have night sweats whenever I take dex and it's very irritating.

I experienced night sweats while on Dex in Jan and Feb of this year. I would get about 4 hours of sleep before I would wake up soaking wet. Not sure why it causes it, but it sure was a pain in the butt.

Never had the sweats while I have been on Prednisone.

Hope you find relief fast.

don't have that problem here, but I have noticed more body odor from my armpits.
