That's a great question. I never looked into it. The first antidepressant I ever tried

No. It is anticholinergic drugs (muscarinic receptor antagonists) that produce increased sweating.

- Pro-cholinergic drugs are depressogengic (pilocarpine).

- Anti-cholinergic drugs are antidepressant (scopolamine).

Scopolamine has been studied as a rapid-acting antidepressant. I don't see much about it anymore. However. I haven't been following it.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
