Tenex


Hi everyone,

This is my first post but I have been lurking for some time. I just wanted to report on Tenex as this has been the only drug that has been able to almost completely eliminate my hand and armpit sweating. I had tried Toprol which helped very little and Procardia which was a nightmare.

Obviously Tenex doesn't help with other aspects of SA, depression, and what not, but it has really helped me with sweating.

Just for reference, in case there is synergistic effect, other current meds are Xanax XR, Paxil, and Cymbalta.

Hi Fered,
My son and I have sweaty palms and feet and I'm wondering if you have hyperhidrosis or anxiety related sweating? Can you tell me how much you weigh and what your dosage of tenex is. What are your side effects from taking the medicine? Thank you.

This Psychiatrist atleast, seems to claim that Tenex is useful for his patients with SA;

Many of my patients have found Tenex to be helpful for social anxiety. It reduces symptoms like sweating, and dry mouth but it also decreases distractibility.

It's also a blood pressure medication and can help anxiety. Like many meds it seems to help more than just it's intended purpose.
