I have been on Effexor 25mg for 5 years now. I am now 23, was originally prescribed it to treat depression but after taking it for about 9 months, the sweating became unbearable. It is so bad that my body sweats so much that i have to take another medication just to maintain a normal weight. The only way i have found this out is because of an article in othello times newspaper where they interviewed several people who complained about the excessive sweating and suggested trying out effexor instead…that’s how i found out!
Is there anything you can do; like switching medicine or something? Or will this be with me forever??
