does anyone who takes antidepressants (particularly SNRIs or tryciclics) experience hyperhydrosis? (excessive sweating)? i never used to get it but after being on venlafaxine for 3 yrs it appeared during the 3rd year. then switched to duloxetine, still happened, then fluvoxamine, still there, now on doxepin and it's only getting worse. my face sweats the most, not really my body, (and even when i'm not hot) my GP has said it's just medication induced hyperhidrosis and nothing can be done about it. it's really distressing and embarrassing and bothers me a lot. does anyone else experience this with antidepressants? did anything help?

    Yes I got that severely with duloxetine (Cymbalta) and only coming off of it helped. Mine was the worst at night.
