Excessive Sweating after Minimal Exercise

I have suffered from Anxiety for around 5 years, I have it under control on most days, I am using Cymbalta (30mg per day) and Propranolol (10mg per day).

Another side effect of one of the above medications is excessive sweating after exercise or manual activity, I have read that this is common and that it affects 5 - 20% of people on anti-depressants and that it has something to do with serotonin levels / inhibitors.....I am not sure

Does any one else have this side effect or did you have this side effect and if you did you do about it, I mean is there an alternative to Cymbalta? i don't really want to change as it works really well for me apart from the sweating. I there a medication that controls or alleviates this problem.

Best wishes to all of you!

I get overheated and sweaty from vacuuming the floor lol. I'm on zoloft 150 mg and Buspar 5 mg 2x days. I was diagnosed with depression, anxiety disorder and hypocondrosis. I'm a female and 31 years old.

Hi Dean

Thanks for coming back to me, do you then think that Anti-Depressants are the cause of the excessive sweating? I am not over weight or un healthy, 41 male, but id a change a wheel on the car or mow the lawn - its like I have run a marathon

I just had a follow up with my psych doc and asked her about the hot feeling and sweating and she said it definitely can be from the Zoloft and also from excess underlying anxiety.
