I've been noticing that I've been getting dry mouth and excessive sweating very frequently which of course causes excessive thirst. I'm suspecting that it started when my Zoloft was increased to 100mg. Has anyone else had this problem? And what's the best way you've found to remedy it?

      I use a mouthwash with anti dry mouth. It'll usually help alleviate the symptoms for 4-8 hours. Buy one of those tiny reusable travel size bottles then fill it up with that. I find if I deal with my dry mouth, the other symptoms don't appear too much

      When I used to be on Zoloft a few years ago I remember getting this really bad. What helped me was tiktaks or other flavored mints, and a really strong antiperspirant to help with sweating. On really bad days I would have watered down pedialyte for the thirst. I hope you can find something that works & feel free to reach out 💕

      I know some of my meds have done that and if you stay hydrated it will be ok

      yup, i have both those symptoms from zoloft. recommend finding hard candy and mints that you like and keeping them on your person! unfortunately there’s not much that i’ve found to help with the sweating but there are ways to make yourself more comfortable like bringing changes of underwear with you, carrying wipes to take off sweat, blotting sheets etc

        @lai I never thought of the underwear and now I'm acutely aware of how nasty it feels right now so thanks for that 😭 (not mad)
