Hi all,

 

I am on the medrol dose pack of pred which has helped my joints lots.  I was wondering if anyone had tips for the night sweats?  I have to sleep with some sort of cover on me which makes it hard.  I actually hae to flip my pillow multiple times per night due to it being drenched with sweat.  I already have my a//c in my room set to 68 and have an additional fan blowing on me.  I wear lightweight clothes to bed...just didnt know if anyone has found anything to help.

I'm not on prednisone now but have been in the past.  The night sweats were terrible.  My dr confirmed they were a result of p and could offer no help.  The sweats got better when I began to reduce my dose as I was getting off the stuff.  Soft absorbant tee shirt sheets helped me a little.  I would put a towel under me and then remove it when it got wet, with a change of gowns and a new pillow I was again dry and back to sleep for a while.

I used to wear absorbable cotton nighties because otherwise I had to change the sheets. This way the cotton abosrbs and wicks the sweat away from my skin. Usually it dries but sometimes I have to change my nighties through the night, but that's better than the sheets because i don't disturb my husband. For a long time I'd strip off layers and that just made it worse because then I'd be cold and I would still end up changing the sheets. So the absorbable cotton works best for me.

Thankfully, I'm not on the preds and not running fevers at the moment, but Sure can commisserate. Those night sweats are the worst.

I have night sweats and I am not on prednisone but I'am on Entocort.I'm like you I have to at least have a sheet on me.I have a fan on me as well plus AC.I have found that all cotton jammis and under wear help to absorb but even with that for me I still wind up have to change my bedding.I wish I knew what to tell you.
