EVERY medication on the planet has SOME sort of side-effect. Basically what everyone has to do is balance the benefits vs drawbacks. If the Lexapro is really making your life better, then you have to decide if it is worth the nightsweats. If not ask your doctor to try another med. Every medical decision is based on PROS/CONS, espesially when taking medication.

Many bad night sweats is not a sign of cancer. You can be overweight. You can also have menopause symptoms. That doesn't mean that you have lymphoma, but if you want to know what causes your night sweats; visit a local doctor.

Night sweats can be caused from simply having the heat set too high in your house, or it can also be caused by hormonal fluctuations. Some medications, especially anti-depressants can also trigger night sweats.

Night sweats are episodes of profuse sweating at night during sleep. Typically, a person will complain that they wake up in the middle of the night absolutely drenched with sweat. Night sweats may occur in many known diseases, some serious, some not so serious, but the majority of them are chronic and involve some sort of inflammatory component. Aj :) Men 40 plus can go through Andropause similar to a woman's Menopause and it can cause night sweats and is normal. Also nightmares can give you night sweats.

Night sweats can also be caused by your emotions. A worrying, bothersome thought can immediately cause the body to respond with heat and sweat. Sweating is very common among not just women in menopause, but older women in general. My doctor says she see women in the nineties still having hot flashes.

My doctor told me to take the lexapro whenever I want, morning or night, as long as I am consistent (ie. always morning or always night or always mid-afternoon).

User Avatar

It is typically suggested to take Lexapro at night, since it has been known to cause drowsiness. Of course, the best suggestion is to talk to your doctor or pharmacist, and to be aware of the effects Lexapro has on you personally. Everyone is affected differently by Lexapro. http://psyweb.com/Drughtm/jsp/lexapro.jsp

I had night sweats with the drug, and I switched from cow's milk to Soy milk. The sweats at night were better, few and far between. I am not as tired and I don't have the weighted down feeling as I do when I drink cow's milk. Soymilk has alot of benefits! You will need to add some protein to your diet too.AnswerYes! The funny thing is, when I looked up this same sypmtom, I found out that excessive sweating is also a sign of Lexapro withdrawal. I'm going to get myself off of this stuff ASAP (you can't just quit cold turkey. You have to gradually be taken off of it).

Night sweats are one of many possible results. Depending on the age and gender of the person, they may be made worse by pre-menopausal symptoms.

Yes. Night sweats result from low to medium grade fever and Crohn's Disease does cause the patient to have a fever because the body is fighting inflammation.

It's so hard trying to get sleep when you are dealing with night sweats. One thing that I do to deal with it is sleep with layers on my bed and also have a bedside fan on.

Menopause and symptoms of menopause usually occur in women in their 40`s and 50`s. Night sweats are caused by fluctuating estrogen levels. But there are ways to combat night sweats which include deep breathing, trying to stay comfortable and even hormone replacement therapy. Exercise helps too.
