I am on long-term antidepressants. I was on venlafaxine, which produced severe sweating and stopped working. Reducing and stopping this can also produce sweating! I swapped over to nortriptyline (a tricyclic) as I was put on a low dose for pain anyway and in the past have responded better to tricyclics than more modern medications. Nortriptyline - sweating among the side-effects!
I have probable polymyalgia rheumatica and/or fibromyalgia (under investigation) and am on steroids - gradually reducing. ALL of these can produce sweating!
In addition, it may be partially a viral problem - and steroids reduce resistance.
I'm also reducing a fairly low dose of oxycodone for back pain.
For a couple of days I've been worse than I was (steroid reduction?) and feeling really shaky.
Does anyone have any ideas?
