Question Prozac and sweating?! Help!

I've been taking Prozac for almost two years (on and off) and I feel better when I take it except I feel like it's what causing me to sweat uncontrollably even when I am not doing anything. Has anyone else had this problem???
I'm thinking about asking my Dr. to switch me to Lexapro. Thoughts?

All the SSRI's (Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro) can cause sweating

If lexapro causes sweating as well, nortriptyline might be worth a try, this doesnt cause excess sweating, and is a very effective antidepressant

Has it always caused sweating for you??

I just switched TO Prozac to decrease the sweating I was having on Celexa. I would get completely drenched all over, dripping down my face on Celexa. Paxil did it even worse, I only took it for 2 mos.

Lexapro didn't & I don't remember Prozac doing it either.

I hope you can find something that works & dosen't leave you soaked
