> Hello,
> I am taking 112.5 mg of Effexor a day and the only complaint I have is that the sweating is out of control! I sweat all the time,and it is a lot,enough to make me really uncomfortable,especially here where I live where it is about 100 degrees already.
> Anyone else have this side-effect? And if so,how long before it passes?
> I have been at this dose for about a week,so I am hoping this will pass with time. Also,I seem to be very nervous,like I am on a small amount of speed. Does this pass as well?
> Otherwise,effexor seems to be working really well for me.
> Cheers,Stef

Stef: I used to take 300mg of Effexor a day for 1 1/2 years. From the time I started taking this medication I had the sweats. It never seemed to get better, it only got worse as they increased the dozage. There were times when I really thought my body was going to catch on fire and burn up. My whole body would be hot, hot and ringing wet all the time and I would go around with this flush face; sometimes even sick to my stomach because of it. I complained to my doctor and he said this is one of the major side effects of this drug. I can't tell how many clothes I ruined due to the sweats..count on it staying with you as long as your on never gets any better, believe me!!! Good Luck.Nora
