Sweating bullets

A friend and I were watching TV when we saw a commercial for antiperspirant. The product was described as “the strongest antipersiprant you can get with out a presrciption.”

My friend and I, in unison, said “Prescription antiperspirant?!?”

Anyway, how can you get prescribed antiperspirant? I’d think that if you’re sweating that much, massive pit stains would be the least of your problems. Anyone know what medical conditions require a doctor prescribing industrial-strength antiperspirants?

Hypersweatia? Meatloaf’s Syndrome?

Sorry to digress so early in the thread but does anyone remember the video sweating bullets I think it may have been the talking heads or something like that, and if anyone knows where I could see that video again.
