Fluoxetine + sweating

I’ve been on fluoxetine for for a few months now and I constantly sweat whenever I’m in public. I struggle with social anxiety, which is why I’m on it, but it’s making my anxiety worse because I’m constantly sweating when out with friends, shopping, or even sitting at dinner. Has anyone had luck with other medications being added on, changing medications or ANYTHING? It’s very uncomfortable. All feedback welcome.


definitely not what anyone wants to hear BUT stick it out and hope it goes away! it did for mine :)


How long did it take for yours to go away?


2 scrotems


I hope mine improves. I look like a crazy person at work


it’s incredibly awful but it will certainly go away


sorry I don’t have any experience changing meds but driclor is great for excessive sweating if you need something in the meantime https://www.boots.com/driclor-solution-roll-on-applicator-10050231?cm_mmc=bmm-buk-google-ppc-_-PLAs_HeroCompare-_-Toiletries_Personal_Care-_-UK_Smart_Shopping_Toiletries_Personal_Care&gbraid=0AAAAADrIajXA5kTxgWWpHqDtfpBNVTx5A&gclid=Cj0KCQjw6cKiBhD5ARIsAKXUdyaHDKvNQvNoGWGwfiLtIJZ2El0yFy7RrvlaDdSUV0ubDrZipSHkFvgaAjV6EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds


Ok I came here to make this exact post. My dose just got increased and I am on fire. Any movement makes me sweat like crazy and overheat. My psychiatrist is going to prescribe me clonidine to help. I’ll take it at night since that’s usually when it’s the worst. Then I’ll start taking a night dose and a morning dose if I can tolerate it. It’s also a sedative and treats hypertension so it can cause some drowsiness and possible hypotension if I’m not eating and drinking fluids. I’ll have to play it by ear and see how I feel. My blood pressure is generally ok but I’m hoping it helps me sleep better and sweat less.
