Thank you for posting your query.

I can understand your discomfort on account of your problems.

Part of your symptoms could be the side effects of antidepressant medications. These include tiredness and dryness of mouth. Nausea and reduced appetite could also be due to them.

These symptoms would reduce over time.

When you say your blood work is normal, I assume that thyroid profile and hemoglobin are also normal, as an excess of thyroid can cause sweaty hands. Other cause of sweaty hands could be anxiety.

Regarding any stomach problem, they would be clearer once you undergo the investigations next week.

Please get back if you have any more queries.

Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
