I started Xyrem several weeks ago after my doctor told me it was the only drug that could help me. For 7 days I took 2.25g 2x a night then 3g 2x a night for 14 days then 3.75 2x a night.

Pros: I’ve slept 8 hours every night I’ve taken it.

Cons: I’ve experienced headaches, nausea, dizziness, sinus pain, tremors, overheating, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), anxiety and a few others.

I’ve reported the side effects to the Xyrem pharmacists, Jazz and my doctor who attempted to tell me excessive sweating wasn’t a side effect.
