Sweating after Cymbalta!

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi!

I'm 21 and was diagnosed with depression 5 months ago. Since 3 month i am on 60mg Cymbalta. Since this time i start sweating profusely on my face, back, under my armpits on my chest and neck. Slighest exercices like ironing, washing the dishes, walking, cleaning room make me sweat bucket. I must change my clothe 4-5 times during the day. I feel better after Cymbalta but this sweating is very embarassing. Does any one else on this forum suffer from profuse sweating after antidepresants?

    Ive just started taking amatryptaline. The only side effect I get is nightmares.

    Maybe your meds need changing?

      Hi emilly06506

      This is what cymbalta did to me,

      Made me sweat a lot......also made me feel more depressed and more anxiety.....I stopped this medication and went back onto my cipramil tablets. I would consider taking something else other then the 2 you said you were taking.

      I've had a lot of problems with sweating myself because my condition of torticollis, my head rest on my shoulder. So my muscle stays sticky because I have so many toxins coming from the muscles it seems that shirt too.. I drink a lot of water and the stains went away. I'm disabled so I use a speaking program that does not work well at times. I wish you well.

    I tried 3 differenty antidepressants before I found one that I didn't give me severe side effects, you may just not have found the one that's best for you. I also found that starting on a very low dose and increasing it steadily helped greatly as it gave my body a chance to get used to it before I took the full amount. My GP said the one I'm on, Citalopram (Celexa) has lower cases of side effect than some but it still very effective. I'd speak to your GP x
