I'm 3 weeks into fluoxetine treatment for PND. Been getting infrequent red flushing on my cheeks, normally to do with heat like drinking a cup of tea or in a really hot room or hot bath. It's become more frequent the last few days, cheeks and nose feel stingy and skin dry and tight. I have a dry mouth too.

Anyone else have this and did it go away? I don't mind if it goes!!!

Funnily enough, I've just gone to the loo at work and noticed facial flushing - second day into treatment with venlafaxine.

Sertraline and 3.5 weeks in. It has got better except when I exercise and feel like my blood I boiling. But the sudden flushing from just sitting there appears to have died down.
