Default Severe night sweats...Advise.

One of the drugs my bride is on is called "Letrazole", it's a hormone replacement drug I think. One of its side effects are night sweats.

Now...I'm sure many of you have either experienced them or have a loved one that has. I had them many x while on certain drugs but never to the extent I saw last night. I bet my bride lost 3lbs last night alone. I kid you not, two complete bed sheet changes, pillow cases, T-shirts, it was bad!

Anyone have any insight as to prevent this, or help mitigate these?

Next trip back to Houston is the 18th - 20th, so I'll ask then, but wanted to see what the power of THT could add.

Thanks all!!!

Little pricey but I thought this was pretty clever:

Talk with the doctor but you may consider supplementing with DIM to mitigate the estrogen swings from the letrozole. It's known to help women going through menopause. It can be bought on amazon for $15.

Well I thought I had an answer when I read the title of the thread. But maybe not. My uncle used to get them, he only ate fruits and veggies after 5pm. Not sure this helps you

I was also going to ask if eliminating proteins after a certain point of the day might help.

So sorry to hear that...hopefully there is an answer found soon. Keeping her in our thoughts.

When you go to Alaska, stay, and sleep with the windows open.

In no way am I intending to trivialize you spouse's condition:

There is no known medicine to mitigate hormone induced night sweats. The best you can do is light clothing and a fan.

I have had these for like 10+ years. I will soak the pillows and flip and rotate through them. It's mainly my head that sweats. Has nothing to do with being hot. It's 68 degree's at night in the room and have a fan running and literally will freeze if I take the blankets off my body.

Not really much help but it's something ive learned to deal with. What sucks is you have to watch out for dehydration. I actually wear thicker clothes to sleep so I soak those and not the bed / sheets.

I was getting night sweats last year from about June on. Didn't do anything about it. Just attributed it to be getting older. Health started declining. Stubborn me finally goes to Dr. in November. Turns out I had a blood infection. Damaged two valves in my heart and part of my Aortic artery. Replaced the valves, repaired the artery, and have been recovering since. Upside, no more night sweats. Don't dismiss what your body is telling you.

letrozole is an aromatase inhibitor that inhibits estrogen production. her problem is likely from a hormone imbalance. I would follow up with MD; I doubt it can be changed by altering diet

See a doctor, it could be a lot of things some serious (Heart, TB, Infection) or it could be just a med reaction. But if you listen to those drug adds, "in some instances, complications may occur and cause death."

This is exactly why she has them. Like I said though, this has worked in a lot of cases:

https://www.amazon.com/DIM-Supplement-300mg-Diindolylmethane-BioPerine/dp/B07NCJH91H/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?keywords=DIM&qid=1565279149&s=gateway&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/DIM-Supplement-300mg-Diindolylmethane-BioPerine/dp/B07NCJH91H/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?keywords=DIM&qid=1565279149&s=gateway&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1

Obviously needs to be cleared with the doctor first given the sensitive nature of her condition.

I can tell you night sweats are horrible. As a competitive bodybuilder, we took a lot of "supplements." One of them the sides were insomnia and night sweats. Usually when I took it was the worst 2 months of my life. So I feel for her.

My wife was getting them, then started taking a good multivitamin (unrelated reason) and she noticed that they stopped. Cheap thing to try, anyways..

You have no idea how much I would absolutely LOVE to do that! I'm actually thinking of retiring there!

Kind of lost by your thinking.....Why would I think you were trivializing her symptoms? Understand completely and that's what we're being told by many Dr's as well. There's got to be something out there that helps though, there always is.
Thank you for taking the time to reply...much appreciated.

The dehydration thing is no joke, she woke up this morning around 05:30 and drank almost 24oz of water, in like 5 minutes. She NEVER drinks water like that! Trust me the sheets were soaked, as well as the pillow cases and her night shirt. never seen anything like that before. It was exactly like she just stepped out of the shower without toweling off, she was dripping!!! Crazy!!!

Ok, before this gets out of hand...Lord! Post # 11 has no clue what's going on and meant absolutely nothing by his last sentence. Please stop sending me "PM's" about the nanny button. My gosh some of you are so freaking quick to judge!!!! The poor fellow has but a few hundred posts!

yakmatt.....FYI, my wife has terminal cancer! Please don't apologize for your statement, actually funny and 100% correct. Ignore any "pm's" you may get.

When I get sick I usually sweat like I'm working. Worst part is waking up from the sweat tickling your chest or back as it drips. As said before, maybe a sweater and towels on the bed. I have to do the same. I'll dig and see if I can find the pic I took last time I woke up with a wet bed because I know yall want to see that.

Well couldn't find it.
