Celexa night sweats

Common Questions and Answers about Celexa night sweats


Avatar m tn Keep in mind that antidepressants frequently cause night sweats. I get them from Lexapro and Celexa, for example. So medication can cause the same symptoms as anxiety. One thing you might try is dividing the Zoloft dose in two -- sometimes that levels the side effects and keeps a steady amount in your bloodstream. But you're also taking a lot of meds, all with side effects and effects, and some of them you're using for their side effects, not their effects, such as benadryl and Tylenol.
Avatar n tn I have been having terrible night sweats for 4 months. I can't tie that date to having started any new medications. I have tried to research all the medications I am on and to date have not figured out which one is causing the night sweats. Do you have any ideas for additional resources where I might be able to find an answer? Or do you know if any of these medications cause night sweats? Will they eventually go away or is there any treatment?
672514 tn?1265658741 You're not taking much Celexa, but one of its symptoms is the sweats. It's not all the time, just once in awhile at night for me, but might have happened to you that once. Or it could have been something you drank or ate or just standing up too fast, but you associated with anxiety because that's what we do.
2190999 tn?1504992491 I know Celexa, lexapro and Sertraline both gave me night sweats. They are all selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Effexor is an SNRI, serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. I think since they both inhibit serotonin, that most likely is the reason you're sweating. The effect for me didn't lessen with time, it was every night for as long as I took them.
Avatar m tn Ever since I switched from Zoloft to Celexa, I have had sweats, mood swings again, very dark thoughts. I've been on it for about a month now,,a few days ago, I started getting a ringing sensation in my ears. Anyone ever had responses like this to Celexa/Citalopram?
Avatar f tn In the last 2yrs I've had night sweats which have lasted for several weeks at a time. If the night sweats are connected to the Zoloft, why has this side effect only started in recent years? I'm also sick of the lack of libido and am considering going off Zoloft. This is a very scary decision as a relapse is terrifying. Has anyone been in my situation? I would appreciate any comments.
Avatar n tn I have had a Metallic taste, nausea, night sweats, headaches, confusion, balance problems for 3 years now. I was put on Celexa but it gave me bad panic attacks so I have been off it for 3 months now. I still don't have any answers after every medical test in the book (all results Normal) Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn Having been on Celexa for just over 2 years I am starting to come off of it slowly (down 10mg every 6 weeks) and am finding that I'm not able to concentrate for very long and am having night sweats and vivid dreams. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to minimize these symptoms?
Avatar n tn I'm 42 & for the past year I've been on antibiotics 7x for chronic lung infections-I have no lung disease. I also suffer from chronic nausea, metallic taste, headeaches, dizzy spells, balance problems, extreme pressure in my head, night sweats, joint & muscle pain, alternating heat/cold in extremities, abdominal pain, recurring bouts of diahrea & constipation, and have been unable to tolerate anything with alcohol in it (ie. beverages, food or medicines).
Avatar n tn I have OCD. I've been on Celexa for about 2 months. The only other side effects that I have are night sweats (about 5 out of 7 nights) and lately I cannot determine if something some one told me or something I sais was a dream or happend for real. Anyone experiencing that??
Avatar f tn (Which i stated in my previous post is not an option for everyone or a wise choice)I still had some night sweats, but better. Still no appetite. I didn't eat at all yesterday until i dosed the cannibis before bed, and finally was able to eat. Not to get political but using cannibis during withdrawls has been a life saver. It has eased each and every symptom to a marked degree. My Dr. put me on Celexa yesterday for the anxiety. We shall see if it helps any.
Avatar f tn I immediately began having intolerable side effects...night sweats, insomnia, tremors, anxiety, dizziness...I was feeling worse than before I took the med! I could not tolerate the side effects any longer, so I made the decision to stop taking it. The day after my first missed dose, I felt a numbnes come over the entire left side of my body. I felt clumsy, dizzy..overall pretty miserable.
1166402 tn?1303850656 ssris can cause night sweats, Celexa is particularly known for this. It should go away with time, but these meds affect everyone differently.
Avatar n tn I had no anxiety before taking the Celexa the first time. In fact all of my conditions were minor before the Celexa. I think the fact he even thought this would be a good idea tells me he's not aware of what I'm even saying. His specialty is IBS, he seemed to have that as the diagnosis before I opened my mouth....keep in mind he ran not a single test. Is this something that will just take time to heal?
997928 tn?1252447837 A dose of Effexor greater than 75mg made me have night sweats like crazy so we added Abilify. Glad I did bc I haven't haven't had serious depression since Xmas 2012. This is just one suggestion. Everyone's meds are so different. Best wished figuring out what works for you. Keep posting until you feel better.
Avatar n tn My therapist has suggested taking Celexa. I am afraid to take this or any other antidepressent for fear of gaining weight and other unwanted side effects. The withdrwal side effects that I have read about in this forum worry me. I would appreciate any advice that any of you have to offer. This as I said is a very difficult time for me and I would like to make an informed decision. Thank you for your time!
Avatar n tn I took an ambien so I'm not sure if it would have kept me up all night. I've heard ppl say celexa has made them lose weight and others gained. I guess it depends on the person. I also know after taking medications for so long the side effects go away. My main issue is the sexual side effect.
Avatar f tn I was on celexa for about two months for anxiety but couldn't take the night sweats so I have been off for about two weeks now. My question is is that I am still experiencing night sweats on and Off. Is it normal to still have these? They stArted a few days after I began the medication so I'm pretty sure that they were the reason. I also have high blood pressure but I am currently not on any medications.
Avatar m tn panic attacks she told me to stop the welbutrin and start the celexa the next day. So that night I took one ativan and then the next morning I took the celexa. This threw my mind crazy. I had this heat wave come over me, my heart rate was out of this world along with my blood pressure and I was dizzy and felt off kilter. I decided not to take the medication and went back to the doctor two days after I took the medication and I still was suffering the effects.
Avatar m tn My GP wants to put me on Celexa instead of Xanax but I have read the side-effects of Celexa and they scared me, especially the sexual dysfucntion part. Anyway, that's my story.
Avatar n tn I have been off Celexa for 2 days, and the hot flushes and tingling sensation are keeping me up all night. Help!!! When will these symptoms subside? This isn't permanent, is it?
Avatar n tn gad and social anx disorder but found it did not help with the depression at all , now i am starting on celexa 20 mg once a day with effexor , would it help if i took celexa and welbutrin instead for my depression and anxiety....
Avatar f tn And I tried Effexor at 150mg in combo with just Lamictal, but any dose of Effexor over 75mg for me made me have night sweats. I was worried I had something else going on with my health until I figured out it was the Effexor. I'm still debating whether or not I will keep my Abilify bc it is expensive for me. I may go back to just Lamictal and Effexor but worry about setting myself up for a rocky road. Like we said, finding the right med/s is frustrating.
1243620 tn?1274794297 Now I've been having severe panic attacks and social anxiety again, and I'm desperate. The doctor have me celexa again, and I'm taking 5mg. I took it last night, I was up most of the night. Worrying, anxious, etc. I feel pretty shakey today, it's hard to focus, I haven't worked on anything I need to get done. I have no motivation and I feel on edge. IS THIS A NORMAL REACTION TO STARTING CELEXA? WILL IT GO AWAY IN A FEW DAYS? WHAT DID YOU EXPERIENCE THE FIRST TIME YOU STARTING TAKING CELEXA?
Avatar n tn (though I had no anxiety, I believe he thought the hot flashes were anxiety). Anyway, he put me on Celexa and the nightmare began. For two days I had amplified hot flashes, nausea, vomitting. I took LSD in college so I believe the drug kicked in severe hallucinigenic effects. The experience was much like food poisoning if you've had that.... After I stopped taking the Celexa I was completely screwed up. My stomach now had a severe burning sensation.
Avatar n tn Methadone (80mg.) Depakote (500mg.) Buspar (20mg.) Trazodone (150mg.) Celexa (40mg) Celebrex He is sleeping all night and most of the day, complains of joint aches, sweats profusely, appears to nod off frequently, is edgy and argumentative. In short, he appears as when he was actively using heroin. Could there be drug interactions causing these symptoms and which are the likely candidates?
Avatar n tn What concerns me, about a year ago is I was on a pretty high dosage of anti-depressants and woke up a few times with night sweats (pretty wet). I did not have any fever at all, but needless to say i was concerned. I chalked it up at the time to the high dose of SSRI's as i had very sweaty legs at night years ago from the meds, but now in my worried tailspin I am attributing the sweats to a possible HIV infection. What are my odds of receiving a negative test for HIV based on what I told you?
644988 tn?1236368148 Citalopram (Celexa) is an SSRI, and that whole group of very useful drugs is unfortunately notorious for producing night sweats. You can google it.
Avatar n tn Anybody else on Zoloft and have terrible night sweats? I take 100 mg daily. I feel great while on this, but the night sweats are making me think I have some underlying health problem!
