I have just been prescribed Pristiq a anti depressant to help with my hyperhidrosis. I sweat randomly when something unexpected happens or i feel nervous. It dosent have to be alot just a little twinge of nervousness and once I feel that first bead of sweat on my face my nervousness increases and its a viscous cycle. I see one of the side effects Pristiq is actually hyperhidrosis....should I be seeking a second opinion? I already tried a different anti depressant (effexor) with limited if any results. However I did not notice any differences in mood when on effexor at all I am a generally happy person...sorry for the ramblings just feels good to get this off my chest.
