I have been on Cymbalta 60mg for a few months now after having negative experiences on sertraline and Lexapro. Cymbalta has helped stabilize my mood and control my anxiety however after a few weeks untouched a problem.

I would wake up and night and my back would be slightly sweaty, this was in an early stage of taking the medication and I thought nothing of it. However, it gradually continued to build. (By the way, I’m 22 to menopause related episodes are thankfully unrelated)

Now I wake up (mind you I’m usually cold so I have no reason to sweat) completely saturated. My back is extremely sweaty in addition to my legs, feet, face and butt. Some nights I think I have peed myself but it’s the excessive sweating I have concluded.

Has anyone else experienced this? I’m 22 so it’s not menopause related and does anyone have any suggestions to combat this? It is extremely embarrassing.
