Avert tablets and Secure Wipes - do they work for hands/feet

I'll try the secure wipes first, then I might just go back to doing iontophoresis with tap water - sounds safer then using Robinul/Avert.

I ordered secure wipes online, without a prescription. There are, I think, about 30 pads and each is used once. I used them in the morning, I don't think it is necessary to put it on overnight.

A higher dosage of Avert definitely makes a difference (taken orally or used with iontophoresis).

Thanks for the reply by the way

Secure wipes for hands would probably also be less effective than glycopyrrolate through iontophoresis. I think the glycopyrrolate solution on the Secure Wipes would have a more difficult time penetrating the layers of skin. Of course, this all depends on how badly your hands sweat: if they are mild or moderate, simply using Secure Wipes on your hands might work fine. Again, you still might notice side effects.
You could also pour the glycopyrrolate contents of Avert into your iontophoresis trays (if you own a machine), and obtain a similar effect that you see at the Hospital. I do this with Robinul (glycopyrrolate pills in the U.S.), but it can get pricey.

I'm currently having iontophoresis with the glycopyrrolate solution done at a local hospital for my hand and feet hyperhidrosis, and so far it's the only thing which has drastically reduced the sweating.
However, the treatment only lasts a few weeks, and it's not possible to get the glycopyrrolate solution at home. So after this, the sweating will probably return again, which I would like to avoid at all costs if at all possible.
Since as other treatments haven't helped me, I saw that Secure Wipes, and Avert tablets from pharmacy.ca both contain glycopyrrolate.
I was wondering if anyone's had experience with using either of these for hand and foot sweating, and which one proves more effective for this purpose?
Thanks in advance.
