  • I take 3 Vicodin a day, I break them in half and take a half every 4 hours, it only reduces my pain, I was afraid of the Tylenol too. I still do even on a dose below the max. My sweating is just as bad, but this discussion helped me realize, I've been sweating terribly the last couple weeks but my pain is way up. That's why I'll bet, I just always blame it on meds and hormones, I always forget about pain, thanx guys

  • My primary care Dr has tested my blood for everything she can think of to figure out my soaking night sweats. But mine are intermittent which makes it more confusing?!?
    I am a 7 almost 8 year chronic pain patient.
    I just had my 11th surgery in the last 7+ years.
    I've changed recently been trying different combinations of pain meds since after 7 long years Percocet and OxyContin stopped being effective for me. The night sweats started many months before the med changes.
    The Tylenol is the first concern for your sister!

    I find I break out in sweats almost EXACTLY 3 hours after taking my ER pain meds, you can set your watch by it! In doing research I discovered that my ER meds are at their highest levels in the blood plasma at 3 hours, and sweating/overheating is a definite side effect one can have from narcotics.

    That said, as a pain patient for 21 years, I have to agree that the amount of meds your sister takes is WAY high, especially the Tylenol portion, which is the most toxic part of the drug. Surprised her doc hasn't switched to an ER if only to eliminate the Tylenol, not to mention having to "reup" your meds every few hours must be a pain in the arse!

    My thoughts and prayers for you and your sister, MY sister is my best friend in the world, so I understand your concerns. Goid luck and God Bless.
