   I'm finishing my first week of meds----37.5 mg of Effexor XR once/day-----and 50mg of Seroquel at bedtime (i started at 100mg first nite, but woke up groogy---called pdoc & he said i could cut dose in half).    Anyway--Seroquel does make me sleep well----Effexor gives me a dry mouth (no big deal)----but, when i take my walk---i sweat more than usual (it is hot & humid).        I read on the "searches" on Seroquel that increased sweating is a sometime side effect---but, besides my other problems---i'm an incurable hypochondriac!!!!      My wife said she's gonna hide the computer (poor woman)----i was reading where incresed sweating along with other things (Which i do NOT have)----are potential serious side effects (some strange neuro diseases)-----Any others who are on Seroquel and/or Effexor XR---have increased sweating.......& not worry about it being a "serious side effect"???   Psych Nurse.....where are you???     And, scaredy cat...or anyone---to put my mind at rest... sad about this side effect---otherwise I'm feeling OK......Robert

The only serious side effect that would include sweating is this one:

Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome:
Very rare condition caused by antipsychotic drugs and characterized by high temperature, muscle rigidity, and an inability to speak (mutism). Requires emergency treatment as it has a high mortality rate.

You have no symptoms of this disorder, if you are concerned you should address it with your doctor.

    Thanks so much, Shannon.    I think i worry too much about these rare, strange side effects---part of my "hypochondria"----HEY, that would be a good new topic---"Hypochondriacs"----Anyway----i don't think 50mg would create any serious problems.        Anyone else have this effect w Seroquel?   Thanks--Rob

   I read where Effexor can also cause increased sweating.   So, i guess that using Effexor & Seroquel---along with hot, muggy weather----is a good recipe for increased sweating.    Anyone else using these 2 together?
