3 weeks on mirta, 30mg, but I had anxiety of and on today, but mornings are the worst. Please someone encourage me . Is it still to see early to see positive changes? ? Positive thing is that I have an appetite, which I didn't have before, I just wish the meds would help with the anxiety.

    hi korneliabr4835 .  mirtazapine is a good medication for anxiety was you put on 30mg straight away because mirtazapine takes a few weeks  for the full affect of the dose you are taking if that is the case it explains the lack of affect you are experiencing from mirtazapine at the moment but you should be feeling better very soon it can take 3 to four week for the full affect of the drug to be in your system   you should be sleeping well at night and mirtazapine does make you eat so if you can try to do light exercise like walking or anything you like to do  . to combat weight gain and helps with anxiety and in the end it will balance things out for you. and should work well. hope the info was helpful and wish you well soon.

      Thank you for the info. I went to ER last night with severe stomach pain. Was told my liver shows signs of inflammation, so sadly I need to wean of mirtazapine in 5 days, hoping another antidepressant will be given to me.

      Thank you Robert. Just came back from my family doctor. We did anothe lab work to see if my liver is doing ok. For right now my doc said to stay on 15 mg mirt, I might have to switch if liver count is still high. So I have to wait and see.
