Body shaky, hands sweating, Tinnitus - is this normal ?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, I have taken fluo for 3 weeks already. Everything has got better. Im functioning normal at work and attend social activities. Without much anxiety.

But the new things that came up this week is when I wake up in the morning, my body is a bit shaky, I have humming noise in my ear, and my hands are wet.

Is this normal ?

Is my anxiety disorder getting worst ?

Is the dosage too high or too low ?

I am on 20mg

    If these symptoms have just appeared since starting Fluox, & you are not taking other medications then yes, they are most likely side effects of fluox and perfectly normal.

    Tremor & tinutus are common

    Sweating & heat flashes are common

    Most will usually dissipate to some degree over a few weeks or so.

    Hi Peter,

    I also had shaking and increased sweating when I started flu. I'm now 9 weeks in and the shaking has stopped except some mornings and the sweating has definitely decreased.

    I was just hoping it would help me socialize more but I believe I'm on a low dose(10mg)
