Anti-depressants and Excessive Sweating

By: Dr. Hratch L. Karamanoukian and Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian

December 20, 2006

Unwanted sweating is a common side effect of treatment with anti-depressants, especially those that modulate serotonin levels in the brain. Prozac, Paxil and Celexa are commonly prescribed members of this group of drugs, known as selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI).

Clinical trials have demonstrated that sweating occurs in 7% to 19% of depressed patients on these medications.

Botox injections for hyperhidrosis can relieve these symptoms.
