Heat intolerance refers to a feeling of being overheated when the temperature around you rises.
It can be associated with heavy sweating. Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) can be associate with excessive sweating. While seroquel has significant anticholinergic activity and individuals on seroquel are cautioned regarding excess exposure to heat due to an inability to dissipate heat that can increase the risk of stroke.
