Body temperature is a balance of the hypothalamic set point, neurotransmitter action, generation of body heat, and dissipation of heat. Drugs affect body temperature by different mechanisms. Antipyretics lower body temperature when the body's thermoregulatory set point has been raised by endogenous or exogenous pyrogens.

Disorders of the hypothalamus may also cause the body temperature to be lower than normal. Certain medications are implicated in low body temperature as well. This includes medications used to treat depression, anxiety, and pain. Declining kidney function is also a cause of this.

Alcohol and drug use. Alcohol may make your body feel warm inside, but it causes your blood vessels to expand, resulting in more rapid heat loss from the surface of your skin. The body's natural shivering response is diminished in people who've been drinking alcohol.

Basically, thyroid hormones are responsible for maintaining the basal metabolic rate of the body. When the same goes down, it leads to shivering, and the body finds it difficult to maintain its temperature. Low body temperature resulting from hypothyroidism is usually observed in the morning.
