> Is it just me, or while being on an SSRI do most people get hot flashes, flushing, and sweating. Sometimes I get this at night. I also get it if I do too much activity (like walking for 5 minutes or so). This is really no way to live if you ask me. I get so uncomfortable that I have to sit down and wait to "cool down". The only drugs that did not do this to me were Depakote and Topomax -- but they also didn't solve my mental problems, and in the case of the latter made it much much worse. I think my thyroid regulation is WAY out of wack.

It wouldn't hurt to have a full thyroid profile done. I have had a thyroid tumor resulting in left-thyroidectomy with thyroid cancer in my family history. I have experienced what you are talking about-SSRI's are specifically helpful for me, but I can only *tolerate* small doses or otherwise I have *severe* autonomic activation-sweating, diarrhea, etc.
