I have been on Mirtazapine 15mg for roughly 5 months. I was put on mirt to stop my anxiety before I went to sleep. I was getting plenty of sleep on these things but I was feeling emotionally numb.
Towards the end of my prescription I wanted to go cold turkey and just get off of them and initially I was absolutely fine. I started to notice symtoms of irritable bowels and a loss of appetite. Eventually I felt like I was hit in the face with depression.
I sleep just fine now but as soon as I wake up I get filled with anxiety, dread and general depression. I have lost nearly all motivation for work and being alone makes me anxious.
I can get my head level after a period of time and after some tears but then my hardwork feels like it comes undone and I am overwhelmed with anxiety/depression and it hits me in waves. I can be really happy one minute and then very depressed the next.
I don't want to go back onto any anti depressants or anything. I would say that my anxiety before taking these tablets was mild but now it is.
I know that we all experience withdrawal differently but I guess what I am looking for is some encouragement that I will eventually feel normal again. I have been feeling like this for nearly a week now and it is killing me. It has been about 5/6 weeks sine I took Mirtazapine. Has anyone succesfullly come off Mirtazapine cold turkey?
