    HI Neverending, 

    I'm sorry that you are in this place.  Can you share your med history?  You said nothing has worked.  Was there ever a time where a med worked for awhile?  How many have you tried?

    You have said in another thread that you have taken one mirtazapine and decided it is the worst drug ever. Please give it a chance. The first pill is the worst. It knocks you for six, but then the second is not so bad and the third is even better. Every day you see a massive decrease in the initial sedative effect. Mirtazapine works really quickly on depression and anxiety (within days). I know how bad the first pill feels, but honestly, this feeling passes. I tried loads of ADs and none worked, but mirtazapine gave me my life back. I am nearly off it now after 4 years (now down to 3.75mg) and I still feel fine. My depression hasn't returned.

      Hi Evergreen,

      I have been down this road before with similar drugs that had the same effect on me..I took Remeron on Tues night at 11pm, and Today is Thursday, @1239pm..I am still feeling groggy..Day 2 of missing work & no end in sight..To be honest, I never want to feel this way again..Way too scarey for me..I see my psychiatrist on Tuesday..Thank Heavens! 

      I value your opinion, but Remeron is a No Go for me!

      I hope that you find a solution. I am going to try and go drug free once I'm fully off the mirt. I am finding inositol powder very helpful and have suffered no withdrawal symptoms so far.
