Avatar f tn I was recently withdrawn from Venlafaxine 300mgs. bd and had a rough time with sweats and feeling freezing along with nervous system side effects. My GP prescribed me Duloxitine 20mgs. a couple of weeks ago but they didn't appear to be making any difference so I stopped them a week ago. My sister has depression and takes Amitriptylline with good effect. Do you think I ought to request the same from my GP?
Avatar n tn for the first time since i come off Effexor i feel great... i feel no withdrawal symptoms. this is my 10th day without venlafaxine. i'm full of energy. and i feel great cause i'm beginning to win this battle. my dizziness is gone. that first days anxiety has normalized, I really believe now that it's possible to survive effexor withdrawal. usually depression has an environmental cause. try do find yourse and fight it. the human mind is very powerfull.
Avatar n tn For a few years, I have experienced night sweats about a week to a couple of days before my period. They usually stop the first day of my period and then start up again the next month. And when I say sweats, I mean drenching... getting up at night at least twice to change and wanting to change my bedding but being too tired to do so. I have spoken with only gynecologist who blew it off. I have since changed gynecologists, but haven't met with her yet to discuss this.

437280 tn?1225521403 I have been on Tamoxifen 20 mg since July. I have the usual intense hot flashes, night sweats,moodiness depression, inability to concentrate, memory changes,insomnia etc associated with menopause but which can also be attributed to Tamoxifen. My concern at the moment is with vulvular itching and labial and perianal tearing. The itching is especially bad at night and I tear even with gentle wiping or looking to see what hurts.

1622335 tn?1299123985 NIGHT SWEATS, MILD WEAKNESS, FEELING HOT, GENERALLY FATIGUED AND LASTING UNWELL FEELING. I'm interested in hearing what you have to say.
1436182 tn?1283685313 I'm sorry your night sweats are so disruptive. I take tamoxifen and have only 1-2 night sweats per night, not as severe as yours. (I wake up and think the bed is on fire, but find it's only a hot flash.) I have a friend who takes tamoxifen and has had many hot flashes that she says are helped by drinking green tea. SurYoung55 has good advice about talking to your doctors.
Avatar f tn I was on Effexor XR then started using generics Venlafaxine 100mg and Citalopram 20mg. I thought I had the flu after stopping the drugs. Until I read the posts I didn't know what I was experiencing. My withdrawl symptoms have been getting sweats, chills, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, dizziness, vivid dreams, overall feeling awful, anxiety, .... How long does this last?
Avatar f tn And my weight is slowly coming off, the initial pounds dropped were water but i am content knowing my face is not so puffy and my belly not so bloated. I will get there and so will you. I too get night sweats but did even before the pills and i am younger than u, i'm only 30. I'm still not totally off though on my last 2 days of 37mg. we shall see what saturday brings i guess, i have not experienced anything so far...
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 n tn ive missed doses before and gone 2 or 3 days without taking it and experienced severe nausea, feelings of intense hunger, night sweats, and intense vivid dreams. to tell you the truth i'm really scared about what these next couple of months are going to be like for me. i havnt had any withdrawal symptoms yet but expet them to begin by tomarrow and am not looking forward to it.
2102085 tn?1350870245 so I went to my psychiatrist, who decided to have me start Venlafaxine on a very low dose (37.5mg a day). So, last week Sunday, 10 days ago, I took my first Venlafaxine along with a new multivitamin and new birth control all on Sunday night (which was dumb of me to start all of that at once!). I woke up at 3:30am, dry heaving and feeling funny. I attributed this to the multivitamin since vitamins tend to make me ill.
Avatar n tn I am prescribed Zopiclone to sleep, although the other night I required 3 x 7.5mg before I slept, which was on top of 2 (100mg) of the Sedating anti depressant Trazodone as well as having taken two Tramadol to help bring on some drowsyness and wind down that night. I felt immensely anxious, unsettled, and sort of, absent the next day at work, it reminded me of the immediate come down from cocaine, or the next day come down from amphetamines or speed (I take none of these anymore).
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 n tn I have tried to get off the meds before and started having migranes every few days, nights sweats, I sleep at least 12 hours a night (still), and cannot lose weight. I am a neuro psych student and wanted to learn as much as I can about the brain and why we have these problems. Knowing what I know now, I want to get off the meds permanently. Diet and excercise is the only way to naturally regulate your brain chemistry.
Avatar m tn Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday nights all had some night sweats, vivid dreaming and a general feeling of low mood... Friday everything exploded... my girlfriend and my cousin had a huge argument that ended with no more friendship and my girlfriend leaving me - I tried a lot of damage control but to no avail. Saturday I felt anxious and went to talk to my girlfriend to end things the right way - very odd since I had nothing to do with the breakup as such...
Avatar f tn I have never written in a forum before, but have been reading these for awhile now, especially since trying to get off Effexor XR. I have been on Effexor XR 225 milligrams for about 6 years after an extremely difficult 6 months at the time resulting in major depression and anxiety with panic attacks. To me, Effexor XR with an occasional alprazolam 0.25 milligrams (Xanax) had been the miracle drugs and saved my life. I take my medication every morning anywhere between 8 and 10 a.m.
6744073 tn?1384774750 I couldn't say what it was that hit me first anyway, getting the shakes and sweats and vomiting etc I thought it might be to much serotine floating around and treading very carefully around the 5HTP now, actually only took 3 in about a week and stop now, no need to mess me around even more didn't know that Tramadol has anti-d in it too and am shocked at what I read so far stopped Tramadol now too, hence no idea which day I am but am rubbish therefore must stil be in days 1 to 4 ish sorry
Avatar f tn Sorry to be so annoying but I have one more question -- Can night sweats be attributed to anxiety? Never had I experienced them until the last few nights. It's odd because I've certainly went through times, in the last few months, when I was more anxious than I am currently. Wondering why this would just start happening all the sudden? Also, what about hiccups? Anyway, hope to hear from you again. Thanks for all your help!
476246 tn?1418874514 Menopause may place women at an increased risk for both osteoporotic fractures and cardiovascular disease. Because of rapidly declining estrogen levels, the hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and atrophy caused by chemotherapy-induced menopause may be more severe than the symptoms with natural menopause. As with natural menopause, the vaginal symptoms can lead to difficult or painful intercourse and sexual dysfunction.

607502 tn?1288251140 I have been on various doses of Effexor XR for almost 10 years solid, starting when I was first diagnosed with depression. The worst side effects for me are the night sweats and sometimes profuse sweating throughout the day. Usually, this seems to be more of a problem for the males on Effexor than females, but I unfortunately have higher than normal levels of androgens which exacerbates my sweating problem.
Avatar f tn I am bipolar and was prescribed Klonopin for my panic attacks and to help me sleep at night because my bipolar meds make my mind race at night. I used to be a cutter (before i even knew that people were doing it for attention or to be gothic and whatever) but I stopped that a couple of years ago but I have found that when I started taking Klonopin I started cutting again and I was wondering if that would even have a connection.
Avatar n tn I had 2 very bad weeks with no sleep, night sweats, nightmares, crying a lot, no concentration, zapping in my head, almost like a humingbird flying by at 100 miles an hour, weird !!!! vertigo, and being just mean. I continued to go to work, babysit my grand children, run a business, and just get through it. I did, and am feeling, yes finally feeling a whole lot betterI am a widow, have been for the last 8 years, I am running in a half Marathon next week, and am 60years old.
Avatar m tn I've tried Paxil, Effexor, Wellbutrin, Celexa and others, but always seem to suffer with some pretty bad side effects on all of them. With the Paxil, I had insomnia, really bad night sweats and GI problems. With the Effexor, I had really bad insomnia, heart palpitations and anxiety. With the Wellbutrin, I actually got more depressed and even had a "road rage" incident while on it.
