Posted , 6 users are following.

I was on mirtazapine for 2 months , 2 weeks at 15mg, then 4 weeks at 7.5 mg, doc said to take 3.75 for 5 days and quit, I lasted 31 days and things on bad, I had to reinstate at 7.5 for 12 days and then 3.75 for ten, things are a little better now, do I just stop taking it or go to 1.87,

    I discontinued after taking 1.87 mg and still incurred some pretty nasty withdrawal symptoms, which lasted for about a week.  I was only on the drug for about 1.5 months (max dose was 11 mg).  Definitely suggest further tapering before discontinuing.

    Your gonna wanna go slow and I mean really slow. I've been tapering for about a month now from 22.5mg to 15mg right now and I do feel some withdrawal but nothing as bad to as when I had tried cold turkey. Don't be afraid to take your time.

      I was thinking cutting down 1/8 every 4 days, that's about .48 , it would take a month, is that to fast , it may take longer if I don't like the way it's going might have to me every week instead of 4 days, if I dont feel good
