Chills from Mestinon?

    I've been on Mestinon for the past month or so, and I've noticed that I have been much colder than I usually am, and I usually feel pretty darn cold! I have practically been living under and electric blanket that's turned onto its highest setting (unfortunately it doesn't go up to 11), and I'm still chilled. Has this happened to anyone else?

    How do you all deal with chills? I'm trying to drink more tea and hot cocoa, but I'm so tired that by the time I work up the energy to sit up and lift the mug my drink's gotten cold!

    I haven't taken that. I would want to look on a list , for possible side effects, or ask a pharmacist about the med, regarding that.

    Also, when I get cold, once I am cold, which does not take long or much, then I cannot get warm without an external heat source. I personally use heat pads of various types, and I need to place at least one on my feet, to get some of the heat to enter my body.
    Another thing I do is to soak my feet in a small tub of warm water. Epsom salt in it, is helpful in other ways.

    CHills that significant and hard to get rid of, can be a seriously terrible sensation.
