Hello. I am 12 weeks off mirt (15mg/4months). I tapered and skipped doses over 2.5 weeks. I have...by the Grace of God...experienced some better days this past week. The dark depression is begining to lift a bit. The death grip anxiety is loosening its hold. I have gone to 2 social outtings in 2 days without any problems. My sleep is still pretty sporadic. That restlessness is still there. I am aware that mirt recovery is not a linear progression, as to not get my panties in a bunch if I have a bad day. Most importantly, I feel like trying. Happy New Year to all. 2018 has got to and will be better than this. XO

      May I ask, was it worth taking in the beginning and would you have taken this type of medication if you would have known its outcome? 

      Me? probably not 

      take care x

      Hi Wendy, I've come off it 3 times now, the first 2 were a piece of cake, back then they helped with depression which I now no longer have (except withdrawals) the 3rd time I was put on it for steriod induced pyschosis which I shouldn't of been the reacted wrong, so to answer your question no I definitely wouldn't take them again In fact I want off all meds now! Never had anxiety until this withdrawal x

      Thank you Chrisy 

      happy new year to you also

      im not feeling too bad it's just the sickness that comes in waves , I definitely feel really better now that what I've been feeling but I think it just takes time to get back to normal after coming of that crap mirt...

      never have I felt so ill in my life while taking mirtazapine and then coming of it..

      But a new year now so upwards and onwards I hope...

      hope your feeling better

      I have only had sweats since last reduction,which I'll take any day,but for.me it's been around day 8,to up to three to four weeks when the withdrawels kick in,and they are not always constant,although I'm really not going to tempt fate,as this drug has a mind of its own that's for sure lol.
