I have always been a heavy sweater in my sleep, but since going on meds about a year and half ago, its gotten much worse.  I soak through my pillow, sheets down to the mattress.  Its been so bad lately i even soaked through the duvey.  Now my wife has been telling me I scream out obscenities and mention minor charectors in movies and tv that i don't pay attention to, backround noise for adhd helps me focus on what i'm reading.  What have your experiences been with side effects like this

Clonidine, a medication for hypertension, can help reduce perspiration and and tourette's tics, if tourette's is actually what the problem is.  The downside is that it can cause increased depression.  It can help with ADD as well.

Most stimulant based ADD meds can bring out latent tic disorders in people who are predisposed to such.  The wellbutrin, provigial, metadate and maybe even effexor could all be contributing to the problem.

I tic, but it's the least of the problem.  If meds make that worse but help with everything else, it's fine with me.
