Topamax, wellbutrin, and prozac non stop sweating
Hello, i'm a 16 year old boy and i was prescribed topamax 25mg for migraines over a year ago. A few months ago i was also prescribed wellbutrin 300mg and prozac 10mg for depression and anxiety. When I first started taking the topamax i hardly sweated. I did start sweating a fair amount before taking the wellbutrin and prozac but the sweating has just increased since then and i've been getting large stains on my armpits just from sitting in class. I sweat most when it is about 50-70 degrees outside and i'm not doing anything. I am also a distance runner and run 6 days out of the week year long usually 30-40 miles weekly. I hardly sweat while excercising. Please help me out and tell me how I can reduce this sweating! I've tried all the clinical strength deodorants and everything! Should i have the topamax dosage increased or stop one of the other medications? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

  Hi, did u inform ur Dr about this side effect? If not, please do, here is a paragraph from this link -http://www.drugwatch.com/prozac/

" Patients taking Prozac may experience a host of side effects, including sexual dysfunction, dry mouth, nausea, headache, diarrhea, nervousness, restlessness, agitation, increased sweating, weight gain, insomnia and drowsiness."

Do not stop any meds with out talking to ur Dr, BUT always tell ur Dr of side effects/.
