Escitalopram :: Sweating With Antidepressant

Aug 6, 2012

I used to take an antidepressant SEROPLEX ( escitalopram). I have been sweating excessively for 3 months, very difficult to sweat so much ; my doctor told me the sweating was due to SEROPLEX and I stopped taking this drug 17 days ago: yet , I'm still sweating a lot: is it normal ?

the chemist of the laboratory which sends this drug told me " 17 days is not very long and the secondary effects vary from one people to another"". One week ago I had a blood-exam and also a lung radiography which were normal. My doctor is on vacation in august and I don't know what to do.

Depression :: Once On An Antidepressant, Always On It?

I seem to remember reading this somewhere -that once you are on an antidepressant , you're going to always be on one, but I don't want to believe it!

Have many of you tried going off, only to go back on? I think I read something about them changing your brain chemistry permanently.

Fetzima? New Antidepressant

Has anyone else tried or heard of Fetzima? It's somewhat new to the market (2013) and is classified as an SNRI. As many of you are quite familiar with- depression often accompanies fibro the majority of the time.

I wanted to share my success story with this med, as I've been on at least 8 anti-depressants since being diagnosed and although they work for 1-3 years, they suddenly stop, as if my body has built up a tolerance. After upping the dosage twice on one med, my doctor will switch me to try another. After starting Fetzima in late May, I have not felt this great mentally for years. If you're looking for depression relief, I can tell you this one has changed my life.

Anxiety :: Which Antidepressant To Take - Have Tried 11 Types

I have taken antidepressants mainly for anxiety for many years.  I have had 11 different antidepressants, switching mostly because of side effects, or when they didn't work too well.  I am currently taking Paroxetine, which works fairly well but has some nasty side effects.

Last Monday I saw a really helpful psychiatrist, and when I told her I look meds up online, she encouraged me to look up the two meds that she was suggesting (Mirtazapine and Pregabalin) and make up my own mind. 

There are plenty of research papers and there's Wikipedia, and med sites, all based on scientific studies.  Very useful but I think it's a bit limited because they decide what questions to ask people.  I really would like to know more about people's own personal experiences of taking this stuff, because I don't see a lot of that on patient leaflets or online med sites.

So anyone who would like to share experiences (it worked, it didn't work, side effects etc),  I'd like to hear from you. 

My first priority is making a decision next week about having Mirtazapine or Pregabalin,  but after that I would also be interested in people's experiences with other antidepressants, including the ones I used to take.

Duloxetine (Cymbalta) For Pain ? Or Antidepressant?

First of all I am not diabetic but I do need help on the above tablet Duloxetine (Cymbalta) which I believe is given to diabetics for pain relief (or so my doc tells me).  I have Cervical spondylosis which gives me extreme pain and for which I take 30 tabs daily plus Morphine and liquid Morphine.   Doc has prescribed Duloxetine which is an antidepressant but which I believe also helps pain. Can anyone on this site who is diabetic tell me about Duloxetine or have they taken it and has it helped with pain?   I am afraid to start taking it as it does not have good reviews and is used mainly as an antidepressant. There appear to be too many side effects, some of which I have already from morphine and it appears to be difficult to come off.   If anyone can comment and help me with this I would be really grateful.   I suffer chronic pain 24/7 and my meds at the moment are having little effect on controlling the pain.  They just keep increasing morphine dose which I am a little afraid of.   Does Duloxetine really work in controlling pain?

Hypothyroidism :: Hot Flashes And Sweating

I was diagnosed as hypothyroid 3 years ago. I currently take 100mcg of levothyroxine daily. My problem is frequent hot flashes and sweating. This has been happening since I've been taking levothyroxine. I initially thought it was menopause but hormone tests show I'm through this now and to be honest, the hot flashes feel different to menopause flushes. At least every hour I become extremely hot and start sweating badly. This can last for 10 mins to half hour. It continues through the night and wakes me frequently. It is ruining my life!

Antidepressant Brintellix For Depression Giving Me Headaches

I recently started a low dose (5 mg) of Brintellix 4 days ago, and I've had a headache every day.   I'm wondering if it's common to get headaches when first starting an antidepressant and how long I should give it before I decide to stop.  My Dr. said to give it a week, but I'm not sure that's long enough based on some stuff I've read.  I can't tolerate most antidepressants, which is why I'm hoping this side effect will go away.  I was just wondering what others' experiences are when starting a new AD, even if it wasn't Brintellix.  Are start up headaches common, and do they normally go away?
