Brief Answer: Side effect of Ciplarex. Switch to other drug. Detailed Answer: Hello. Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Cipralex tablet contains Esitalopram. It is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It is potential cause night sweats. Rivaotril contain Clonazepam. It does not cause night sweats. It is one of the usual symptom with Escitalopram. If it is bothering you, you need to change the drug. My advise is to either switch over to other SSRIs or other antidepressants like Tricyclic antidepressants. Hope this helps. Please reply for further queries. Wishing you good health.
