    I always opened his window at night because if not, he'd leave a big sweat puddle in his bed.

    This is perfectly normal with meth, with increased body temperature and adrenaline flowing, the body tends to get pretty hot, sweaty, and stinky.....Ever wonder why most meth addicts are dirty?

    careful ! when you sweating on meth its very easy to catch cold or flu, try to avoid fan winds and open window winds. Just let it sweat, nothing wrong with it, put a cold wet towel around ur neck

    Swim find he sweats like a mofo whenever he smokes shard: despite avoiding sunshine on a hot day,avoiding physical activity, drinking lots of water, eating ice cream and having cold showers. Swim also notices really nasty body odor. I find that these side-effects are the least desirable aspect of smoking shard. Anybody else out there have same experiences? Anything one can do to avoid these side-effects?

    Swim once had a session with his cats in his room. The air-conditioning was turned on and I was still sweating. The body odour comes with the sweating and can easily give away signs. I had an experience on this and he always bathes every 9 hours on sessions. Try keeping a close eye on that perspiration problem and use a wet towel to wipe your back and neck as desperado stated. It helped for swim to stop sweating for an hour.

    Study legitimate real world literature on meth. Sweating - elevated body temp - is a result of the high level of serotonin meth causes. Everyone talks about high dopamine levels but meth is unique among the amphetamines in that it releases serotonin as strongly as dopamine.

    If excess levels of serotonin become symptomatic it is called serotonin syndrome. When meth-induced, the syndrome has two main signs: the fever, which alone is diagnostic if the meth use is revealed, and confusion that follows if the fever is untreated and brain damage begins. Convulsions are next. If it gets to that point, you may be finished.

    Serotonin syndrome will kill you if the fever runs out of control. If you survive you might have brain damage.

    Serotonin syndrome WILL kill you if the fever runs out of control. This is one of the biggest & most realistic dangers of meth.

    If you are really hot, sweating, and it continues at more or less the same level for some time, you are on the thin end of serotonin syndrome.

    ER presentations for meth OD in the US are: #1 cardiovascular effects and #2 uncontrollable fever from serotonin syndrome.

    Serotonin syndrome is not very common *in the whole population* so if any of you need to send a meth user to the ER, reveal the meth use. Without that info, the physicians will waste time chasing more common reasons for the fever. Dying from brain damage from an uncontrollable fever takes days and is agony & racking whole-body convulsions. It is a fucking awful way to die.

    Animal studies show that there is a strong correlation between brain damage and excess body temp *when the fever is caused by serotonin syndrome.* This fact appeared on a list of harm-reduction info MF found that said it is imperative to keep body temp down.

    MF takes all that very seriously so he immediately takes steps to get cool if he starts to heat up. And he keeps up the effort until he gets results - he doesn't just open the window then go back to sweating. Get cool, the issue is brain damage.

    SWIM sweats a lot and My feet also turn blue/purple sometimes because they are cold. I will wrap her feet up (if I amn't moving around), or put socks on, and will open a windown and turn on a fan to face her face.

    Meth does a lot of things. One action is to constrict the blood vessels. 'Way out at the fingers or toes, it is possible they will get so little flow they will be cold.

    I would dial back dosage if I got that profound an effect, especially the sweating part. The quantity of meth you take translates to the volume of brain transmitters released.

    I agree that you must make an effort to stay hydrated and make sure you do not overheat yet Swim hates how its impossible to toke a bowl with a fan in the room.....

    I get major bad breath, body sweats and very stinky sweats at that...i actually dont like talking to people because of this issue so then then I get nervous....I like the euphoria however its not worth it and for those reasons I dont really do uppers (meth, coke, speed etc)
    I feel like it induces an anxiety attack some times too.

    Of course SWIM sweats more than usual as well. She also drinks lots of water and takes showers every 8-10 hours or so. She hasn't noticed bad breath before, but she has always taken excellent care of her teeth and mouth. And her feet get cold too, but not to the point of turning purple or blue. Thankfully so, because that would probably freak her out a little...

    my neighbour sweats like a m***er f***er when on ice, at least 5 'costume changes' (i call them, lol) every few hours and there is literally nothing that can be done to stop it..

    Air con can be cranked up to the maximum and still - sweat dripping down her arm pits like she's just ran a marathon!

    its so embarassing! and the smell, oh the smell! Its so horrible she barely leaves the company of a few close friends when on ice!
