I've been giving a lot of thought to not using anti-perspirants, but I have hyperhydrosis that affects my hands, feet and armpits. The hands and feet are manageable, but my concern is that if I use more "natural" methods for my underarms, I would have a tough time keeping it under control and I don't want to change shirts throughout the day.
Has anyone ever used products such as Drionic or other methods of iontophoresis with any success?

@ aegix, interesting question. There are several previous threads on hyperhidrosis, sweat and body odor. I added some tags to your question so you can follow the links. I don't recall if anyone mentioned trying iontophoresis.
I have no personal experience with iontophoresis, but it is discussed on the Hyperhidrosis Society's web site. According to them, it's mainly used on hands and feet, not armpits. Also, they mention that you may be disappointed with results from over-the-counter products such as Drionic.
