What causes excessive sweating at night?

I have 2 issues: a. Excessive sweating at night while sleeping b. When I work out at the gym or take long strenuous walks, I yawn a lot. I am 72 years old and in otherwise excellent health with only hypertension as a condition, treated with micardis.

Related to your concern it is not known that sweating is a side effect of micardis. But for this situation you need to talk with a doctor and do a physical and lab examination. This is to exclude some pathology that can cause excessive sweating like thyroid problems, diabetes or infection.

I hope my answer help you. Let me know if I can assist you further.
