Pristiq night sweats

Common Questions and Answers about Pristiq night sweats


2190999 tn?1504992491 I'm sorry that I don't remember. But now taking Pristiq (the upgraded Effexor), I don't sweat at night. And I'm taking a lot of other medications. It will cost more than the Effexor which is now out in Generic. So that will depend on your insurance whether you want to try it. I switched to get my sex drive back.
Avatar n tn If Pristiq is like Effexor, I'd avoid it. I had the night sweats and soon, apathy. When I tried to get off Effexor, I had the worst brain zaps I've ever had. I'm sorry to hear that Lexapro didn't work for you. I haven't tried that one yet. I am very interested in Valdoxan since it sounds so different.
Avatar m tn I was kept ther for two days and eventually checked out fine. I was diagnosed as having a severe panic attack. My Psych doctor wants to put me on Pristiq. Yes, the same doctor who never mentioned the side effects of Lexapro to me. So, I am naturally worried and have done a ton of research on Web Md and other sites. It seems that this medication either works great for you from day one or it is a complete nightmare with side effects worse then your initial Anxiety.
929549 tn?1266444620 My withdrawal symptoms include - night sweats, nausea, dizziness, bad concentration, forgetfullness, mood swings and irritability. Some days i cant get up in the morning because i feel so weak. any surgestions?
Avatar m tn Pristiq will help you for at least 2 years without night sweats, plotting suicide ways of doing it. Effexor is crap. But fact you are getting off it means that it would be against advice, which say's you are in denial because of the way people treat us on these meds. My useby date at 50 is over because I also now have been diagnosed with ADHD. That would explain my super robot mechanic output fueled and swimming in alcohol while working.
Avatar n tn I don't agree with taking marijuana, though, still technically federally illegal, I believe. You might be having a hormonal imbalance causing your night sweats (and may want to check with a gyn doctor or endocrinologist about those if it turns out not to be one of the drugs you are taking causing it). Have you tried Chinese acupuncture for the migraines, other pain, and insomnia? What about occasional use of over the counter insomnia treatments, such as passion flower or valerian root?
Avatar f tn so recently my biggest problem has been my EXTREME anxiety that has gone left hanging in the air after ive been taking 100 mgs of wellbutrin twice a day. ive always been taking ssri's so in a way they kinda both helped me with the depression/anxiety thing in general. it wasnt until a couple months after being on wellbutrin that i found out that it has no connection to help with anxiety & it is simply used for severe depression.
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?
746058 tn?1248348265 My OBGYN also put me on Effexor for hot flashes and night sweats because I wasn't a candidate for hormone therapy and I'm going thru' menopause. I happen to have POTS, but wasn't put on the medication for the POTS. I became very sick after that with nausea, shakiness, and a most terrible moodiness. I had to be taken off the medication and it took quite a while to get out of my system. That being said, I've read good things about it; for POTS and menopausal changes.
Avatar f tn My dr put me on Christie and ever since then everything seemed okay but then I started to have night sweats ,nightmares ,major migraines and I was also peeing a lot and I felt so weird and not myself. The headaches were on and off but I can say it has help me and somewhat not obsess of a fear about dying.
Avatar f tn I awoke, semi-rested... I experienced a lot of night sweats last night. Tonight I've taken 5mg and here I sit, sorta tired, but not ready to go to bed yet. I feel a bit chesty after taking the medicine.... I'm not sweaty tonight. I'm hoping this works for me -- unsure why I'm experiencing panic at all.. but it happens. Good luck with the medicine... Hope it works for you.
Avatar f tn anti depressant, which explains why when I took it at night, I could never sleep. Prozac can actually be used in people with ADHD ADD for this reason. Cymbalta is more of a "calming" antidepresant. I have heard VERY good things about it! I would also recommend researching it online.
Avatar m tn I have had three continuous symptoms for over 6 months which all started a couple of weeks following my risk exposure. These are thrush, pain in buttocks/lower back and night sweats. Just wanted to confirm a couple of things 1. Are these ARS symptoms? 2. Is it possible to have ongoing ARS symptoms for 6 months following exposure?.
Avatar m tn Good diet, plenty fruit, veg, dairy. v low fat. No weight loss, have had headache, intermittent sweats with occasional low tempx 2 weeks. Sleep well. No pain at night that I can tell. Starts when I get up. Currently on Pariet 40mg 1 a day. Have been on Somac - no help. Nexium long term, minimal help. Pariet seems to be helping the dyspepia now; lessened sense of choking, globus and trouble swallowing. What concerns me is the abd pain.
Avatar f tn also after awhile of it I have extreme pain in my lower right side I had ct scans and xrays all the tests done and they said I'm fine Chest pains that spread across the chest Cold hands and feet along with sweats while half of my body is hot or I get absolutely cold and no matter what I do if I put 4 blankets on I'm still cold or I get to hot I have change in skin color my hands turn all red or all purple and they get cold or burn up purple color there cold red there on fire Breakouts
Avatar m tn I eat very healthy and well balanced, and exercise daily, though find having to eat ice cream and more carbs to gain weight as I am constantly cold, prior to Xanax when I was anxious I would break a sweat and completly go mind blank. I have pretty bad night sweats now though, and I sweat heavily under my armpits and drink about 4 gallons of water or gatorade a day as I am constantly thirsty. Though I think this has to do with the Pritiq. I read through this woman's manual: http://www.benzo.
Avatar f tn The type where I was witnessing gross murders and mutilations and many times committing them myself. Nausea, brain zaps, tremors, fatigue, cold sweats... you name it I had it. So they put me on Prozac. It took about another 2 weeks but finally the symptoms subsided and I was feeling great. Apparently I was very ill and had to be on medication to regulate those symptoms. They were certainly not discontinuation symptoms (or so they told me).
453029 tn?1205955019 When you're ready to stop the Gaba, wean Very slowly. 800mgs TID, is quite a dose. I was on only on 300mgs a night for 2mos, stopped c/t due to stomach issues and man, what a mistake! I quit taking it beginning of Dec and except for the the severe tinnitus (off and on Still!!) I am just this last week feeling normal again. Best of luck!
Avatar n tn 5 so my head wouldnt feel like it was exploding. Since then Ive been taking 1.5 in the morning, and .75 at night, just so make sure those feelings won't come back. But.. thats not helping the situation. I do not want to be an addict. I don't even drink. It's driving my crazy to have this feeling like someone else is in control of my body. And then I read these forums and realize the amount I've been taking is nothing compared to everyone elses. How could I even be addicted???
7562787 tn?1392206272 It's awful. I do take it at night, the lexapro, that is. But I hate that because then I stay up all night suffering with it's awful side effects. They're so powerful that I literally dread each dose. I actually felt better emotionally BEFORE I started lexapro at all, which is saying something. Personally, if I had to switch my schedule, I'd rather take it during the day instead of at night, which I what I've been doing now, simply because maybe I could get sone damn sleep then.
Avatar n tn I started taking Savella over a month ago, after a very bad reaction to Cymbalta which I had taken for about 5 weeks-every time my heart rate would go up I would get shaky, tunnel vision and almost pass out- I saw a SMALL decrease in pain over the last few weeks, but the Diarrhea, stomach cramps, and insomnia are KILLING ME, along with the sweats.
Avatar f tn Sharp stabbing pain in one exact spot on the my left collar bone. 4. Major night sweats, EVERY night. 5. My left shoulder is always tense and nothing relaxes it. 6. Severe depression and anxiety. I get irriatated daily. My chest feels heavy and hurts. I literally hold my chest because of the pain. My current meds: Pristiq for depression, Tramadol 150 mg a day, vicodin 5 mg (yes one 5mg pill) a day. My past treatments include (not limited to because I can't remember them all.
Avatar m tn Along with adding the Fetzma at 20mg a day, I am also on Effexor (150mg), Trazadone at night for sleep(200mg), restoril at night for sleep(30mg), Klonopin for anxiety (1mg up to 3mg as needed.) I have taken so many different medications and I can honestly say that none of them made any significant difference in my depression. I get so depressed that I don't even have energy to cuddle and play with my kitty. Feeding her and changing her litter seems overwhelming most days.
Avatar n tn It helped with depression but not my FM. I got up to 50 in the morining and 25 PM and sweats started, insomnia, hypertension, ringing ears, sore throat, nausea. Check your blood pressure because these SNRI's are notorious for raising BP which can give you headaches. is an excellent site for info on drugs.

1265027 tn?1284843551 Everytime I close my eyes and doze off, my body heated up, night sweats, brain zapps, my body felt weak all over! This would only happen while trying to sleep. I had my man take me to the ER. They couldnt find anything and when I mentioned the Prednisone, they played dumb! ( which they always do when it come to pointing the fingers at meds) while awake during the day, i felt weak, and anxiety out the butt! Not to mention I was dizzy from the vertigo. OMG!!

196469 tn?1365391575 I had my Hysterectomy on 02/08/07. I started with hot flashes & night drenches (not sweats!) within 3 wks after my surgery. My Dr. started me on Estratest. My May I was having crying spells & I went to my regular M.D. & ask him if maybe it was my thyroid, as I take synthroid. He told me he bet it was my hormones & he did bloodwork & forwarded the results to my GYN. My regular M.D. told me then he thought I needed to go to a compounding pharmacy.
