Has anyone noticed they have less tolerance of heat when taking Cymbalta & sweat more easily in hot climatic conditions?
Tolerance Of Heat On Cymbalta
Posted 03 March 2021 - 11:29 PM
I live in South Florida and even walking outside on a nice warm (72F) day made me sweat. I've been off for a few years now and I only sweat at the gym or if I'm walking a few miles around my neighborhood when it's warmer out.
That was one nasty side effect, but they all are nasty!

Thanks everyone, much appreciated. I recently bought some 'temperature regulating" sheets, doona and mattress protector and wow, they actually work. I haven't had a sweaty night since buying them. I never used to be a hot sleeper but I have been while taking cymbalta. Certain fabrics are "moisture wicking" so they are very effective at cooling the body when it gets hot during sleep. I never knew this. I read about it recently and bought a super light doona/quilt from Aussie company MiniJumbuck that is 40% cotton and 60% wool - it's called Super Cool/Ultra Light and it's incredibly light - only 150 gsm which is basically why it's so pleasant for hot sleepers. I also got their Sleep Cool mattress protector and some cotton sateen sheets at 300 thread count, which is very light but very cool. Some sheets are horrible at 300 thread count so go for the sateen cotton ones as they are super soft. We're told that high thread counts are more luxurious but they are also very hot due to the close stitching that the thread count represents. Anyone on here who suffers with night sweats because of bloody cymbalta should give these types of products a try. MiniJumbuck is expensive but I couldnt find another quilt with any other supplier that was 150 gsm with the same combo of wool and cotton and these are the keys to keeping you cool. The % blend of wool and cotton is very calculated to ensure "moisture wicking" apparently. They are great products, very high quality but if they're too expensive for you, just try to find alternatives that are similar in both materials mixing (wool/cotton), weight (150 gsm or thereabouts) and thread count and that should give you some relief.
