11 days ago I started taking lexapro for my anxiety/panic and depression disorder. I am very sensitive to meds so Im starting out at a low dose of 2.5mg and in combination with xanax (I usually take it twice a day at total of .25mg all together). Im still experiencing side effects which I was expecting but Im wondering about
certain ones. I tend to have really sweaty palms and feet while on these medications, I sweat more (at night while sleeping, Ive always had night sweats but it is worse now), and my temp seems to fluctuate. No fever just my skin is very warm to the touch (yet my hands and feet are cold and clamy). Im used to this affect when Im having attacks but this is something that is constant now. Is this normal? I mean who knows what normal is, but has anyone experienced anything similar? I just saw my pdoc yesterday and she wants me to increase my dosage to 5mg once I get passed my current side effects, she didnt seem to concerned with my clamy-hand-temperature challenged symtptoms. What gives? Thoughts? Opinions? Anyone lol?
