Has the excessive sweating ever happened before he took the zoloft? our body's change over time so it might not be the medication it could be that his metabolism has gotten higher as he has gotten older. So it might not be neccessary to change the medication and this could possibly be absoulutly normal.
Hi there yes i do sweat a lot. Especially after a shower for about 30 to 45 minutes on zoloft. i am on 100mg. And yes i do sweat a lot when i am playing tennis. I am worried about it because the doctor is going to put the zoloft up to 150mg. I have been on zoloft for about 14 manths. I was wondering if it gets better. I am 44 years old. Thank you.
Hi, Mick.! Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) commonly occurs in abut 1% - 10% of users of almost all antidepressants. Aside from being embarrassing, it's not really dangerous as long as you drink enough fluids to assure adequate hydration especially after exercise.
Sorry to say that most side effects, if they're going to resolve do so within just a few days to several weeks of starting the medication but an increase in dosage shouldn't aggravate the problem.
Make sure your doctor is aware of this and you could consider discussing alternative medication.
