Anti-Sweat Pills Effective? Any Side Effects?

Ok so I just got these anti-sweat pills from and its clinically proven to help palmar hyperhydrosis and any general hyperhydrosis. They claim its all natural and works. But before I take any I was wondering if anyone else tried them? Are there any negative side effects? Here's a list of the ingredients on the container if it helps;

Foeniculum Vulgare

Ptychotis Ajovan

Cuminum Cyminum

Ruta Graveolens

Cateria Lacca

Cinnamomum Tamala

Cassia Angustifolia

To me the ingredients sound like conditions, lol, I got them to try to help my excessive palmar hyperhydrosis instead of surgery which is the only known cure but I decided to ask here first. Any help is appreciated.

Anti-Sweat Pills Effective? Any Side Effects?
Considering the number of people who are taken in by advertisements for all kinds of magic pills, I'm beginning to wonder whether I should quit my present vocation and start off something that exploits the inherent gullibility of people (and makes me a millionaire in the process).

I would advise you to show the medicines to your doctor before taking them.
Reply:Here's a forum discussion from a few people who have taken the anti-sweat pill.

Apparently the manufacturers claim that the pill works to reduce your pore size, therefore reducing the amount of sweat. Herbal products are not FDA approved, and therefore do not require well-designed and controlled clinical trials to make their claims.

One of the users on that forum mentioned they experienced diarrhea, probably from the ingredient "senna". You can check this site for each herb's uses, side effects, and rating of efficacy.

Botox was recently approved by the FDA for treatment of palmar hyperhidrosis, so you may want to consult a dermatologist about this option before proceeding with surgery. I first heard of this use a few years ago, but there more treatments other than surgery listed on Wikipedia.

If you take any other medication daily, be sure to check with your doctor or pharmacist about the anti-sweat pills. Some herbs can have serious interactions with prescription medication.
