Now found out I have incompetent vein in leg which may be part of the problem had cystocopy and found cysts in kidney, then developed hypertension but no one will diagnose the pain. Now decided it is the same as diabetic neuropathy but as gp and consultant point out I am a long way from being diabetic with perfect blood glucose so thinks it's just guessing and hope

- Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!

From this study (9 months ago):
About five years ago I started noticing it was very hard to reach orgasm during intercourse. About three years ago I noticed a lack of interest in sex. About one year ago I noticed it was very hard for me to get and maintain an erection. I also started getting dry orgasms even during masturbation.
From this study (11 months ago):
Depression a bit better but not a lot. Memory lapses since taking cymbalta. Tried to very slowly stop (from 60mg every day to 60 one day and 30 one day, but dizziness and that "head in an vise " feeling got much more pronounced and I moved back to 60 every day. I would ilke to stop cymbalta but seems so difficult if not impossible due to side effects.
