LOL FUUUUUUUUUUUU
i did that already and went to the docs too
They told me to go check out a specialists(which I did) and he gave me these pills but they didn't seem to work...
Botox was the surgical solution but its like 2-5k and not permenant.
Anyone else here might have a similar situation as me?

Never used it. Compare the ingredients, that should tell you.

Certain Dri uses the same ingredients as any anti perspirant, it's just a high dose that you use at night before you go to bed, rather than in the morning. (it's just a potassium salt that closes your pores) It doesn't have the effect of melting and gumming up the armpits of your clothes.

I find that after a week of application, I don't have to use it any more than once a week or so.

All ANTIPERSPIRANTS use aluminum chloride or aluminum zirconium or similar as their "clinical ingredient". It blocks sweat glands.

There is a difference in ANTIPERSPIRANTS and DEODORANTS (difference being whether or not there is aluminum)

Note that hyperhydrosis is generally caused by an autonomic dysfunction where your body can't regular temperature appropriately. This is why you generally sweat from places that most people don't actually sweat (ie. hands/feet, ect.)

I think that:
Drysol is 20%
Certain dri is 12%
Most antiperspirants are 4% (ish)
Secret..I don't know...probably around 12-20%?

Also, don't be fooled by marketing.
Clinical strength? Any strength is going to be "clinical strength".
Prescription strength? Any strength of anything drug can be written as a prescription..if you can buy it w/o a prescription, then its not a "true" prescription strength, right?

Drysol is a topical solution. It doesn't work as well as others. Oral solutions are guaranteed to work, but they may have side effects. One common side effect is dry mouth and dry skin. You can compensate for them by drinking lots of water a day, and using lotion.

I recommend Avert/Robinul. They are the same, in that they both contain glycopyrrolate. The reason why you have HH is due to excessive/over reactive acetylcholine in your nervous system. Glycopyrrolate reduces the count.

Get 2.0mg. Take one a day. After two/three days, it'll be gone.
