Night sweats

Posted , 3 users are following.

After 4 months on sertraline still getting awful night sweats.  Do they ever go away.  Also insomnia is back.  That may be due to the night sweats.  At my wits end.

    Hi Lynda I am 61 and have been on sertraline for around 5 years now.  I do get night sweats but also feel hot during the day as well sometimes.   I think the hot during the day bit is the drug but the hot flushes and night sweats are hormonal.  Although I went through the change 10/12 years ago I still get them.   Some women get hot flushes for life unfortunately sad 

    I find the other side effects of sertraline are a dry mouth,  insomnia,  and nasty dreams.   However I find this a good trade off as my depression is much more under control these days.  Maybe you should have a chat with your doctor if you are concerned.  x

      Hi Hypercat

      thks for responding.  I think perhaps you are right.  The night sweats are probably hormonal. Like you I went through menopause many years ago. I just wonder why the night sweats now.  I also get hot during the day.  Not fun.
