should i be concerned?
Jan 23, 2001
I had some problems with appetite lately. Probably due to the medication. Healthwise i feel very good. T4 over 1000 and VL below 50. 2 weeks a go I got a prescription from my Doc which i see every 3 months. Megace oral suspension 20 mlg. daily and Androgel(testosterone). I have been using both medicines and it works. I constantly think about food. I even started baking some cakes which I have never done in my life before. Anyway, about two days after using this meds I started having nightsweats. I have never had this before but now i find myself drenched every night. Is this a normal side effect or should i be concerned and call the doc? Thank you for answering.
Response from Dr. Young
I'm not familiar with night sweats as a side effect of either Megase or Androgel; though since both are steroid derivatives, I could believe it possible. I'd contact you doctor to be sure. BY
