Hi, I have been taking 30 mg mirtazapine since March. Today my doctor prescribed me 45 mg. I take it for panic disorder and general anxiety plus depression. I have a fear of vomitting. If I feel sick I start to have a panic attack. So right now I feel sick and I know it’s from my anxiety. I am really scared to up my dose to 45 mg because I know it can cause nausea. Has anyone had bad nausea when upping to 45mg? I know we are all different but I like to know the fact other people haven’t felt sick while upping mirtazapine. I’m not scared of any other side effects except the nausea part. Please help and calm me down. I am suppose to take it tonight and I am scared.

      Thank you!! I’m trying it tonight. It was a relief seeing all your guys replies. My therapist picked this medicine because it helps me with my panic attacks and helps nausea plus I wanted to gain weight. I have gained weight from it.

    Hi there, I’m an emet too!

    I’ve been on mirtazapine for a little over a year and never noticed an increase in nausea when I adjusted my dosage.
