Hi - been on 70mg of this one for about 3 weeks. I think I feel more level but I am sweating profusely (embarrassingly bad) and have experienced palpatations and nausea. I also have freezing cold hands and sometimes feet at the same time that my upperbody and head is sweating. is this the body trying to compensate?

    I feel exactly the same very cold hands and cold upper body all the time and the weather is supposed to be getting warmer?On the other hand when i am feeling a bit warmer i'm sweating constantly.I think this must be part of the side effects.I have just started taking one in the morning and one at night.I'm gonna try taking both at night instead see if i'm any better for it.I have also found i look like death all the time even though i'm sleeping well at night i have huge dark circles under my eyes.Has anyone else experienced that?

    Hi, I am so glad to hear that other people are experiencing freezing cold hands and feet. Sometimes I get a feeling of slight pins and needles. The feeling one gets when for example your hands are warming up after being so cold. I also have sweating. I thought it could have been poor circulation.

    I have been on Lofepramine 140mg, 1 in the morning, and one late afternoon for approx 6 months. It has upped my mood, although I do get anxious moments, but then I am a worrier anyway. Dont suppose it can cure everything though. It's helpful when you read other peoples side effects and that it is not only yourself that has these feelings. Thank you everyone who uses this forum. It really can help.

    I also have cold hands nearly all the time. Not much sweating though, if not when I do exercise but that's fairly common.

    I have occasional dizziness and drowsiness that can be bothersome. I have been on it for about 1 month.
