Avatar f tn Now for the past 3 wks or so ive had horrible hot flashes and for about 2 wks i have really bad nightmares, also bn feeling on edge again i have mood swings outta no where, breast tenderness as well hmm wonder if that has anything to do with it but just throwing it out there.
Avatar m tn I had already experienced hot flashes as part of menopause but this internal heat was so extreme, sweat would pour off me just getting ready to go to work in the morning & while at work I had a fan on me all the time! Winter here can get to 30 below celcius so why was I that hot all the time! From then up to Nov/09(a year) I visited my dr. to ask why this was happening. He provided no answers or clues. I tried on my own to find answers....
603543 tn?1255298050 The one thing I love about Pristiq is no 'hot flashes' and profuse sweating, but I am beginning to wonder if the bad side effects are going to get any better. If not I will have to switch back.
Avatar m tn Omg reading all of this is scaring me horribly =o i started Pristiq in Septemberfor depression/anxiety and i felt fine at first but for the past 2 wks or so i bn having HORRIBLE nightmares its bn just bad.. I bn having really BAD hot flashes for about the same 2 or 3 wks idk if it has something to do with Pristiq or whats going on.. Also ive had lil panic attacks about twice.
Avatar n tn I really don't have hot flashes anymore. But, I get hot and I do sweat a lot. I never really sweat much. I can't hardly wear make up or keep my hair styled because I sweat a lot.
909257 tn?1242671782 I was recently on Pritiq and it caused hot flashes and sweating and it made me feel manic like I wanted to crawl out of my skin. I stopped that med 3 days ago. My Psych put me on mood stabilizer lamotrigine. My question is: Does lamotrigine cause sweating? or Am I still sweating from the Pristiq (anti-depressant)? I am newly diagnosed with BPD and I am just trying to understand it all.
1547573 tn?1293758787 I took Savella for a while I had light hot flashes occassionaly, but it gave me manic burst of paranoia and energy so I don't take it anymore, heart was beating like a rabbit. Pristiq has given me hot flashes as well but it's gotten less often as I have been on it. It may just be common to these types of drugs. You'll probably try a few before settling on the right one for you.

All of these symptoms resulted in me having to be medically homebound for my senior yr. of high school. I was diagnosed with depression and comfortable with the diagnosis until now. I have tried everything to lessen the symptoms!
746058 tn?1248348265 s perscribe it after hysterectomies for help with hot flashes and mood swings due to hormone changes, but also saw that some cardio Dr.s prescribe it also to help with POTS. Does anyone here have any experience with it?
Avatar f tn I also had muscle weakness, nausea, confusion, a delay in my speech, and hot flashes that traveled up and down my body. I called my old primary and they told me to wait off the side effects of the imitrex instead of going to the ER. My head continued to burn for two months when another doctor finally pulled me off of the serotonin medication. The burning is gone for the most part but I am left with what they are now calling generalized dystonia.

Avatar m tn Since the earliest appointment with the pain management doctor who prescribed pristiq is still two weeks away, I decided to talk to the pharmacist who filled the prescription. The doctor would probably suggest doing this anyway. She said the hot flashes I'm experiencing are more likely caused by the pristiq than any problem with the neck surgery I had a few months ago.
692643 tn?1372614827 I broke out w/ horrenous welts all over my enitre body and not to mention I was having severe hot flashes after a full surgical hysterectomy..I felt as if someone was lighting matches and tossing them @ me.during the Summmer it was aweful...where I would just leap up and yelp..in the bus, in BBQ's. except for my face.Thank God....still after 2 years I have the scars..(don't laugh) I'm on it again.. .I believe while I was on Cymbalta last April...I took a percocet for my back & legs.
Avatar f tn Never got a straight answer from him on how I could have build ups and then not. For six months, I was treated by the psychiatrist with Klonoprin at first and then Pristiq for a conversion disorder, something that made absolutely no sense to me. I have no history of depression, I am happily married (30 years), grew up in a happy home, have never been abused, experienced no extreme trauma.

Avatar m tn Well that little glitch seems to be over. Now I'm just back to hot flashes. Medications can do some wierd things. Makes me wonder why people ever want to do drugs? Wierd.
962875 tn?1314213636 Hi Kat! There wasn't room to paste the whole article (and the parts I included ended up mangled for some reason), but it also discussed more about some people having a gene deficiency that makes them unable to metabolize CYP2D6. This was the article's recommendation: "What You Can Do? If you are a candidate for tamoxifen therapy to treat breast cancer, talk with your physician about the CYP2D6 issue.

890684 tn?1288813638 Well it sounds like you have a lot of anxiety about health issues. I myself, am quite the hypochondriac and have been through tons of tests and doctors visits. a lot of the weird symptpms you are feeling can be attributed to anxiety. Anxiety can make your body have a "tinging" sensation, have hot flashes, and random aches and pains. I experience all of this with my anxiety, especially during anxiety attacks. I read in your previous post that you experience nausia...
Avatar f tn 5 every other day and feeling okay I stopped and started my new prescription, Wellbutrin-- well, for two days now I'm nauseous, shaky, hot/cold sweats, feel like my eyes are vibrating somewhat when I make too fast of motion with my head. It's as if I have symptoms of Vertigo and can't fix it. I'd rather be shot in the foot and deal with that discomfort and pain than these annoying side-effects. What do I do?
Avatar f tn none of the other made me sick like cymbalta, but i was living in a 24 hours sauna with the hot flashes. i live where it gets cold and people wear down jackets...i wear a tee shirt...plus, hubby always cold and i am running like a hotwater heater out of control. hair is always wet....etc etc etc...i do think i will get in to doc sooner than we planned and get started on something else. it seems like everything just snowballed on me and hasn't stopped.
1096641 tn?1271710825 I feel so good...not worrying about sneaking off the the bathroom to swallow some pills...no 'hot flashes' to deal with...mind is clear, i can stay on track today. this is all so worth it.
Avatar f tn I have had so much diarroea that I think I have a hemroid now. Vomitting, hot flashes, extreme fatigue, crying at EVERYTHING and VERTIGO! Slept pretty much for the past 3 days, the nausea and spinniness is just aweful, and constant. Though it seems gravol is helping a little bit with that. What is really bothering me though is this wierd swooshiness in my head... and increasingly a "lightning-like" sensation rushes though... it's weird ...
Avatar m tn Hi Thanks for the post! How are you now? Variants of Dandy Walker’s Syndrome are associated with other genetic syndromes and diseases. Most common is abnormally functioning cilia which are present everywhere in the body like in nostrils, digestive system, urinary system etc. The co-existence of other genetic disorders results in these multi organ or multi system symptoms.

453029 tn?1205955019 I just started on 100 2x per day and 2 at bedtime, so total 400 mg per day. After the second day, I was able to finally sleep. Have perimemopausal insomnia, hot flashes, anxiety, and currently a herniated disk in my lower back. Am hoping pain relief will kick in, but my current dose may be too low.
196469 tn?1365391575 This is a particularly ominous development for women - Wyeth is also asking the FDA to approve Pristiq as a drug to reduce hot flashes in menopause. Pristiq is the successor to Effexor XR, whose patent expires in two years. Sales of Effexor last year were $3.8 billion. By the way, Effexor is not exactly a great drug either. Just check my blog on the topic and read about its side-effects and disastrous record when it comes to attempting to get off it. But let me get back to what matters.
Avatar n tn I also had hot flashes that traveled up and down my body, nausea, muscle weakness, confusion, and a delay in my speech. I currently have tremors in my left hand and a slight nodding movement/tremor with my head.
Avatar n tn I had to stop taking the strattera because it was making me nauseous. After stopping Strattera, I began having hot flashes.. In fact, I had 30 hot flashes in one day! They hot flashes began to subside... Then I started missing periods.. I have not had a period since Sept 9th of 2008. I had a pap smear on Aug 18 2008 which was normal. I did think it was odd that I had a period shortly after the pap smear.. Up to that point, I wasn't having any periods at all.. The last one I had was Nov of 2007.
