Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft and excessive sweating


Avatar f tn I have had excessive head sweating for the past 2 years,i am post menopause and very active.I do not feel comfortble enough anymore to enjoy life no one wants to hug a sweathog!!I take zoloft for panic attacks and vasotech 5mg daily for bp which has never been over 140/80 but Dr. said it was time to watch it.I may be 15lbs overweight but i could sweat that off tonight. I was a chronic prescribed diet pill user[tenuate] but stopped three years ago with no problem.
Avatar m tn I just had a follow up with my psych doc and asked her about the hot feeling and sweating and she said it definitely can be from the Zoloft and also from excess underlying anxiety.
Avatar n tn I started taking Zoloft (now at 100mg/day) about 6 months ago, and began sweating more than usual, and I also felt hot. Now I don't feel "hot" anymore, but I do sweat a lot. It's unprovoked, if you will, started once I get up in the morning, and sometimes even at night while I'm sleeping. It's really embarrassing, and nothing I do seems to help. I switched deodorant, tried drinking more water, etc. I've also started weaning off Zoloft.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am on Zoloft and it has never caused me to sweat at all...... I hope this helps...
410475 tn?1262945967 I did a quick check on medhelp on Zoloft and sweating, and found this post: "I've been on zoloft for 2yrs. just uped to 200mlg. and the night sweats have gottensooo bad. is there any chance they will go away?" by Hensley258 [This user is a Community Leader for this forum] Nashville - Apr 19, 2008 11:39PM To: jjaberwaky I'm right there with you. Many of these AD meds can cause excessive sweating. I have gotten that same side effect from nearly every AD med I have ever taken.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn There is no love lost between me and the big pharmaceutical houses, but if Zoloft WAS causing miscarriages and heart problems, do you really think it would still be on the market among the top 5 most commonly prescribed antidepressants? No, it would not. You can scare the wits out of yourself by reading the insert on your bottle of aspirin.
Avatar f tn However, all of the physical side effects such as dry mouth, excessive sweating, nausea, diarrhoea, feeling uncomfortable in my own skin, and crying at the drop of a hat have all come back with a vengance. Typically they ease up by early afternoon, but these side effects are making it very hard for me to function in the morning. I really don't know what to do because I can't stand feeling like this, but the medication is helping even out my mood to some extent.
Avatar f tn I've been taking zoloft for about a month and a half now to help me get through every day life and to try to ease the constant fear I have about having a recurrance. Just wondering if anyone ou there is on zoloft or any other antidepressant and if you have experienced any side effects.
Avatar n tn I got off all and crashed. Doctor put me on Zoloft and Xanax. I felt AWFUL on Zoloft. Terrible flu-like symptoms going on and up and worse coming down and off. Two months AFTER being off Zoloft I continued to have withdrawal symptoms My last Zoloft dose, and I tapered down slowly, was 8-31-06. I then had to taper down and go off Xanax (last Xanax dose was yesterday, 12-14-06). Continuing headaches, twitches, flu-like symptoms. I have read that this is all withdrawal symptoms.
1276940 tn?1501103481 For the past two months I have been sweating a lot. Especially at night. On occasion, I wake up and the back of my neck (my hair line underneath my hair) will be soaking wet. This doesn't happen every night but it has happened on more than one occasion. But what I am mainly concerned about is during the night.....I never wake up too hot. But when I wake up nearly every morning my sleep pants are damp. They are not soaked by any means but it is very noticeable.
Avatar n tn check the webistes under zoloft side effects and zoloft and alcohol. I wish you both luck. My mother takes zoloft and is just fine, but my daughter was affected adversely; so be aware and informed. Dear worry a lot lots of young people develop odd fears while growing up..don't worry one day they will go away. My brittany is tortured by the fear of throwing up. I know how scarey it is for you, but you will most likely not throw up and if for some reason you did...
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn The excessive sweating has kept me in my home to long and has caused me to have 0 social life. I have been told that I could never come off anti-depressants. I lived 45 years before going on an anti-depressant. Do you think this is worth a try?
Avatar n tn My anxiety symptoms I most frequently get now are an upset stomach, excessive nervousness, not being able to look forward to doing enjoyable things, thoughts that I will never get better and sweating. One thing is that my anxiety has gotten better since first being diagnosed. This is pretty much the way my anxiety has been for the past 4 months. It comes, it goes and every time it comes back it seems to be more managable, although it really sucks when it comes back.
396099 tn?1216258586 I wanted to check in with you and see how your switch from Lexapro to Zoloft went/is going. I am making the switch myself and have been weaning off Lexapro and onto Zoloft. Right now, I'm taking 10mg of Lexapro and 37.5 mg of Zoloft with 1 mg of Lorazepam 2x a day (to help get over the hump of changing). I have noticed that since I am overlapping AND taking the Lorazepam, I have little desire to interact with anyone AND the sex drive is completely dead. How are you doing now on Zoloft?
644382 tn?1223467606 I have some side effects, excessive night sweats, and excessive sweating during the day time, too. By excessive, I mean my sheets are soaked nightly, and my deoderant does not keep my armpits dry. I switched to the Degree Clinical Strength and its still not working. I sweat excessivly 24-7. Also, I am have been having sexual side effects, I cannot reach an orgasm. I just kind of feel numb to pretty much everything.
7665079 tn?1393187282 after prolonged periods of quiet upright posture (such as standing in line) after being in a warm environment (such as in hot summer weather, a hot crowded room, a hot shower or bath) immediately after exercise after emotionally stressful events (having blood drawn, being scared or anxious) some individuals get symptoms soon after eating, when blood flow has shifted to the intestinal circulation during the process of digestion We are all susceptible to fainting by activation of the vas

Avatar f tn I've been on zoloft for 2yrs. just uped to 200mlg. and the night sweats have gotten sooo bad. is there any chance they will go away?
Avatar n tn She was deliberating between the cholesteral medicine and the thyroid medicine and chose to up the thyroid medicine as I think she wants to make sure that my mood and energy aren't compromised because of being low on thyroid. I have had excessive sweating and a little of the scratchy face before either of those last 2 changes, however, but now it is worse. My face feels raw and is a little blotchy and sometimes my nose really itches.
Avatar n tn The GP gave me some Zoloft and called it a day. That stuff SUCKED. I hacked it out for about a month and quit completely but things gradually got worse & then the exteme debilitating fatigue set in...along with new symptoms like muscle weakness and joint pain. I finally went in—after researching my symptoms, putting two and two together, and talking to my grandmother (she had hashis and cancerous nodules resulting in a TT)—again for blood work.
Avatar n tn My heavy periods are almost non-existent. But I can't live on valium and my other choice is zoloft. I'm 50 and I just wanted help with perimenopause. Guess I'll go to plan B. Menopause can't be that far away - right ;-}? Good luck!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Maybe it's not normal to have a fistula but vaginal gas is normal and natural and if you dont feel comfortable with your partner it's embarrassing I suppose to an extent but I am 23 and young and if some guy is going to judge me on such a natural occurence that's his deal. Try a different position where youre not stretched to wide and there's not excessive pumping. I know when i get air inside I feel sick and bloated it's uncomfortable.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I am a 25 year old male and am just getting started on meds. I have just been prescribed Zoloft to treat my bipolar disorder (manic depression). After reading some of the testimonials I am feeling a little nrvous about taking the drug. I have been very lethargic and sluggish for the past 12 months and after repeated family adivse choose to see a MD. I am to start with 25mg for a week and then switch to 50mg daily.
Avatar n tn I am currently taking 150mg of Zoloft in the morning and 50mg of Trazodone at night. At first I was only taking Zoloft and had minimal side-effects, but was having trouble sleeping so my Dr. prescribed Trazodone. Since taking the Trazodone I have been having night sweats almost every night. I wake up freezing cold and soaking wet and have to change my clothes before I can go back to sleep. I am wondering if the drugs might be causing this, or if it is probably something else.
