    I too have taken this drug for several years for hyperhydrosis. I believe I have built a tollerance for the rx. It does not always work for me, and I find begins to kick in when it should be wearing off. I think i have noticed when I take it at night before I sleep, I have a better chance of it working the following day. Overall this drug is amazing! I pass along this info to anyone, who may suffe ... Show Full Comment
