I have been on Methadone for close to 8 years now. All is going well. I am an exemplary client, get 27 day take homes, never broken a rule, other than like 3 dirty urines in 8 years.My number one problem with methadone is the sweatting. It is so bad, completely out of hand. People at work just look at me like I'm an alien. Know exageration here, I work in an air conditioned building, though I do work physically - I'm a maintenance man. Everyone else around me is bone dry, fresh as can be, and I am soaked! All day, everyday. It drives me batty. If I do switch to subs, does it get better???

I've noticed that Suboxone ....during the HUMID Alabama summers...causes a little more sweating than I'm accustomed to..but then again, we have an average dewpoint every day of 70 or above. So there is LOTS of moisture in the air. But in my home, doing normal housework (laundry, cleaning, etc), I don't sweat anymore than usual unless the A/C gets turned up around 78. Mostly I only start pouring sweat when I'm outside in the extremely high temps (2pm-6pm) on those humid southeastern US summer days. Our problem in Alabama is having the gulf moisture mostly encompass the state during the summers, so it adds to our heat and makes it feel hotter than it really is.
Never been on methadone, besides going on a binge once, way before I ever found Suboxone or even cared about treatment. I had a friend who got methadone from the VA and was given them for pain...and I took a couple - which, in turn made me throwing-up sick. I never touched another one after that..but I didn't really take enough to see what effects it had on me.

I wake up drenched in sweat. My pyjammas cling to me n are soaked. My hair dye is smeared all over the pillow cases.
Thankgod I'm single because it's not nice to see this fat thing sweating everywhere n during the day the sweat will pour down me but may also be the weather as it's in hot in the UK.

Hmm.. Methadone was my DOC for years before getting clean on Suboxone--of which I have now been clean almost 5 years (August 31, whoop whoop!).

I never experienced sweating on methadone, ever...unless I was withdrawing. And, I have never experienced sweating on sub....

I wonder why you and other people do?

Does Sub cause sweating like methadone does? In my experience, no. I find I'm more sensitive to the cold in winter while on Sub though, but that's as far as it goes.

If you detest the sweating from methadone, then Sub may be the answer to your problems.

Hi Methadonian! I was on methadone for a good while some years ago. You are sooo right...sweating was one of the most annoying side affects. I live in the south so summers were almost unbearable. And..the sweats never went away until I got waaaaaaay low on my dose. I've only been on Suboxone going on 3 weeks now, and I have not had any sweating at all. Headaches, yes. Sweats, no.

The oxycodones used to make me sweat, but these Suboxones really open up my sweat glands. With just the slightest bit of exertion, I'm drenched.

I'm at 2mg a day of sub after starting at 4mg about 2 months ago. My doc has been aggressive in tapering me and it's been working. I can't wait to get down to about .25 or .50 and jump off these things. I'm not sure what kind of WD I'll be looking at, but it'll beat these freaking sweats!

EVERYONE is effected differently; I was on methadone for years at a high dose of 240mg daily and didn't have the slightest problem with sweating. I was cognizant of the fact that it was a major methadone complaint at the time but it never effected me that way at all. The same thing with buprenorphine today. However I would have to say I sweat more on buprenorphine in general because my anxiety level is in general a bit higher at times due to the significant loss in opioid and, in turn, anxiolytic effects between the two medications.

I sweat way beyond normal. I could just be standing still doing little activity and break out in a sweat. When I get into any physical activities I pour sweat. My doctor diagnosed it as hyperhidrosis. It is really annoying sweating so much.
