Cymbalta and excessive sweating

Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta and excessive sweating

cymbalta

I can do nothing without excessive heat and sweating. I've had cardiovascular testing, seen an endocrinologist, who in fact told me to stay on .88 mg of Synthroid from now on! He didn't bother to make me a return visit either. Several times I seen a rheumatologist. No one seems to be very interested in my extreme sweating and thyroid, except to take .88 mg of Synthroid. Finally, I stopped all medication the first of this year, except my blood pressure medicine and Cymbalta.
After a year on the 60MG, I am reducing it back to 30MG, due to excessive sweating. I have had good success with it, though, and am continuing on it. I've gained weight, but it's unclear whether that was from menopause or not being able to exercise as much as I used to, and diet. I don't overeat nor do I generally eat fried foods, but I have not been able to keep a consistent diet for the past couple of years, especially since I retired.
Hi, I am on Zoloft and it has never caused me to sweat at all...... I hope this helps...
I was on cymbalta 60mg previously, stopped due to excessive sweating... I am not post menopuasal and will restart with in the next few weeks. I like Julie was started on 30mg and titrated up to 60mg. I will again start at 30mg because this is what is recommended by the pramacutical comany that manufacturers the medication.
hi, I don't know if this will helpyou, but it has changed my life, I am 57 and had a totl hysterectomy at 44 and was on HRT until last year. The excessive sweating came from nowhere and was ruling and spoiling everything. I have had scans. blood tests, seen nurses, doctors and consultants, nothing.
I also, recently, have been experiencing the sweating of the face, head and neck. I take Paxil (40mg) once a day and at bed time along with a water pill, Hydrochlorothiazide (25mg). During the day if I exert myself, even the smallest amount, I'm wringing wet. Its disgusting! Unfortunately, it IS a side effect of the Paxil. I was on Effexor from 1987-2001.
I am a 58 year old woman who found this website by doing a search on Excessive Body Heat and Sweating. I was very excited to learn that there are so many other people (especially women) who have this problem. I am over the menopause but this excessive body heat began just after I was diagnosed with Graves Disease. I have subsequently had radio active therapy and the result was becoming Hypothyroid and having to take thyroxine replacement.
dizziness, tingling feelings like pins and needles, sleep disturbances (vivid dreams, nightmares, inability to sleep), fatigue, sleepiness, feeling restless or agitated, feeling anxious, feeling sick (nausea) or being sick (vomiting), shaking (tremor), headaches, feeling irritable, diarrhoea, excessive sweating or vertigo. These symptoms are usually not serious and disappear within a few days, but if you have symptoms that are troublesome you should ask your doctor for advice.
I had sweats, vomiting, nauseau, swimmy head, dizziness, clicking in my head (I felt like there were bugs crawling under my skin), electric shock sensations, and insomnia then excessive sleep. I went down on Cymbalta at the same time my Lamictal was going up in dosage so I didn't do like LCC - but it helped me to have something in my body, I suppose (the Lamictal). I went up on the starter dosage on Lamictal while coming down from Cymbalta. Cymbalta is the devil drug in my book.
htm Hypoglycemia that is low sugar in blood too causes excessive sweating and a feeling of chill. You must monitor your blood sugar, especially since you are on insulin. Next time that you have this episode please see if taking some quick sugars like glucose, glucose biscuit etc gives relief. If you feel better on eating, the symptoms are most likely due to low sugar. This can be dangerous, hence need to see your specialist at the earliest.
I go to the toilet. Explosive diarrhea and sweating and weakness and faint feeling (some times I do faint or lean on something to keep me from falling over). Then after it's over I get very cold. I still feel a little weak but I feel much better. I drink lots of fluids and am a pretty healthy 25. I don't believe it's all separate diagnoses. Like the vaso vagal and then another one for the diarrhea and another one for the sweating etc.
I am trying to figure out what medication to change to stop the side effect excessive sweating. I am currently on Effexor 150 mg once daily and have starting having excessive sweating. I would like to know the equivalent to the way Effexor works but without that particular side effect. The Doctor called in a prescription for Cymbalta but that particular medication is going to cost me $190 each prescription.
I am a pre-med student trying to be a neurologist/psychiatrist and my excessive dreaming problem, as simple as it may seem, is making it so hard to reach my goal. The worst part is how hard it is to diagnose or figure out what exactly is going on in our brains. Loss of attentiveness, excessive dreaming, not to mention constant thinking and slight nerve twitching. It's all so frustrating.
About 2wks ago I started having problems w/ excessive sweating and sligtly elevated pulse. At first I thought is was correlated with taking Bactrim for a sinus infection but after talking to a friend she said she also had excessive sweating w/ Cymbalta for about 6mo but did not mention having any pulse related problems. I just wondered if anyone else has had these symtoms. My PCP is aware of my symptoms but did not think they were related to Cymbalta.
I have just started Cymbalta and have noticed a tremendous increase in my appetite. I think I can try and control it however, I was wondering if this would be enough. I don't want to continue on the drug if the weight gain comes from slowing one's metabolism down. I think it would just be easier to get off the drug now then later.
The problem is the Cymbalta was better with my depression but seems to increase my anxiety and cause me excessive sweating, esp in social situations. Does the sweating sound like a common side effect for SNRI?
I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
If I do any physical activity my hands and feet will turn very red and be very hot and I can feel the heat radiating off my hands and feet. If I am outside and the weather is hot and I am wearing flipflops my feet will get beat red and so will my hands. I dont feel any pain but it is uncomfortable because i can feel something happening in my feet and even my legs. If i take a hot shower my feet and legs become beat red and my legs get blue even and I dont know why.
I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
Combining these medications can increase the risk of a rare but serious condition called the serotonin syndrome, which may include symptoms such as confusion, hallucination, seizure, extreme changes in blood pressure, increased heart rate, fever, excessive sweating, shivering or shaking, blurred vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, incoordination, stomach cramp, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Severe cases may result in coma and even death.
and percocet 30 mg/day (both for lumbar neuropathy), and Robinul 1 mg twice a day (for the excessive sweating caused by the Cymbalta). OTC supplements, in addition to the calcium, are multivitamins, glucosamine/chondroitin, and omega 3 fish oil capsules. Some symptoms I've noticed over the past 9-12 months are memory problems and difficulty in concentrating, bone pain (mainly hips and legs), lack of energy, some feelings of depression, excessive thirst and frequent urination.
Online is one thing, but I was in near shock when last week I actually met someone who went through the same symptoms (dizziness, hot flashes, sweating, chest constriction, fast heart beat)! Though hers started last march and lasted a month and a half. She went to a whole bunch of doctors, no one could tell what was wrong, and when the symptoms went away, she stopped pursuing it. Which is why I am now really really wondering whether this could be a virus/bacteria/fungus...
Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
it will last about 30 seconds to 5 minutes. the only 2 things i've found that trigger it are dry heat and excessive exercise. i ran track throughout high school and played lacrosse, and during the workouts it would sometimes come and it would incapacitate me since i would be unable to focus on anything but the prickling all over my upper body. it happens a lot less these days, but i still get it at least 2-3 times a week (as opposed to 1-2 times a day).
I instinctively blamed the source of my pains upon the fact that my occupation relies heavily on the use of a computer, and putting these pains down to excessive use. The pains in my hands, arms and shoulders became unbearable. The more I read into RSI the more concerned I became of my problems, as they matched my symptoms perfectly.
I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried massage therapy, it helps but only for a short period.Then I have to go back to the massage therapist again and again, my insurance will not pay for that.
Over the past three years or so, I've experienced really rapid weight gain and excessive sweating (and I do mean excessive), so sometime around mid-September '09 I asked my doctor to switch me to something else to try to curb those side effects that I associated with the medicine because every other medical test basically said I was healthy as a horse. Okay, so my doctor switched me over to Cymbalta, 60 mg/daily, and that seemed to work fine and actually helped the sweating problem.
I cannot begin to tell you of my frustration with doctors and the medications they prescribe. I can no longer work, and experience excessive hot flashes and night sweats like you. What I can tell you is that I would much rather try to deal with my pain than take some of those medications and possibly have a severe side-effect to deal with. I see a new rheumy in June, and I'm really hoping and praying that he's at least patient and knowledgeable about this.
I went through a long depression and decided to take Cymbalta, After about 2 months I had no sexual fuction (female), headaches, constipation, excessive sweating. I weaned off. Felt great for a few weeks now I am depressed again. I get triggers. What can I take for depression with low side effects? Like no weight gain and sexual disfuction. I can't take Wellbutrin. Paxil took my life away for ten years, I gained weight and was a zombie in bed all the time.
