I started taking 8-2MG SL about a month ago. since then I've been sweating profusely. That's the only side effect I've noticed so far. Does anyone else have sweating as a symptom? I haven't gained weight but am worried I'll do so. Is weight gain one of the side effects of this drug?
julvanv; Yes sweating is a common side effect when you first start this medication but with most people it goes away in the first week or two. Now on the weight gain, this medications can go both ways loss of appetite weight gain or loss.So you would normally get this problem right off. Which can be controlled it's known more as a weight neutral medication which means they offset each other for most people.So I would not even worry about it until you have been on it for a while and see what happens. For most this has been very effective and the side effects well go away. hope that does it for you sorry it took me so long to get back to you been a bit under the weather. Chuck1957 Have a good day.
Yes like some one else said the sweating is normal. For me it never went away and its been almost a year. Especially night sweating!! And I also have gained weight. I don't think its the sub's that actually make you gain weight. Its what they do to you and how they make you feel.. Tired, unmotivated a little maybe??? you might not even realize it but that's what I attribute my weight gain to. My actions after taking it vs before have made changes to my lifestyle leading me to gain weight.. Hope this might help!
