Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • Excessive sweating on face, head, back, shoulders, stomach and under arms regardless of temperature or physical activity. Clothes become soaked within minutes. High temperatures are unbearable. Decreasing dosage of generic amphetamine salts only improves symptoms somewhat. Question if alternate ADHD medication (Vyvanse, etc) would have any positive effect by reducing the sweating?

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • Was on Lexapro 20 mg for two years. Was then told to try Cymbalta 30 and work up to 60mg. I did, and I felt GREAT. Only thing was I noticed tightness in my back and chest occasionally....then I was put on Adderall for my distraction/avoidance in getting things done. Noticed right away that the cymbalta and adderall should probably not have been given together. I sweat a LOT more than ever, and now my skin itches, even my scalp. It's very annoying. Plus the dry mouth and bad taste......I don't know if I want to continue on either of these drugs. Isn't there something that works like Cymbalta minus the side effects???
