, hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) and
some neurologic conditions like strokes, autonomic neuropathy. Medications like aspirin, acetaminophen, niacin, tamoxifen and Viagra can sometimes cause night sweats.
Keeping the bedroom cool can help with night sweats. Also, keeping ice water and a fan by the bed will help ease any episodes you get.
