Hi everyone! It’s been a long while since I posted and I hope your doing well. I came on to ask if any of you have severe fatigue and sweating from antidepressants. I’m on cipralex and amitryptiline. Both for my anxiety and depression but amitryptiline mostly to help with headaches and fibro pain. I definitely feel the amitryptiline is essential for me as I get terrible neck pain and migraine if I miss just one dose. But I’m wondering if it’s even worth trying to get off the cipralex to eliminate the extra side effects.
I’ve talked to my doctor but I think she’s honestly tired of me coming to see her. Last time i mentioned my worry about my anxiety and insomnia she increased my cipralex from 10-20. And told me to take it in the morning. Well now I zombie around most of my day, and don’t even want to leave my house. 1). Cause I’m exhausted. 2). I’ve no motivation to be around anyone. 3). I feel worst with activity or excercise 4). I sweat so much even sitting in front of my ac unit and a fan. I just can’t seem to be comfortable 5). It just hurts too much, my muscle stiffness and pain when I do any activity is debilitating.
I need to figure myself out or I may end up hurting my relationship. As my husband is understanding most days, he certainly is tired of seeing me like this. I’m so worried that I will end up alone. But it’s an unpredictable illness.
