    Hi there,

    Well 've managed to stick it to and I'm on day 6. But I have mouth ulcers and feel like I have a permanent brain fog. Just now my two loopy nephews jumped out at me in the street and I nearly died..  So my oversensitivity and jumpiness aren't any improved. I really don't want to increase to 30 mg as everybody says the same thing about piling weight on and the terrible withdrawel symptoms. Right now I feel I am just trying to witness a lift in my mood and feel more motivated.

    Otherwise I'm thinking of giving up on it.

    You do not say why you started on mirt.   If was because of anxiety you cannot blame mirt for it!  You have not given it time to work. 

    I sympathise with you being afraid of mirt - there are so many people here giving it a bad name.   You might wonder why so many doctors and psychiatrists prescribe it -  they have obviously not learned from this forum.  Perhaps they have come across patients who benefitted from it?

      How long did you take it for? And how long did you get withdrawals? Hope you don't mind me asking. I took it for a month & had to ween off due to terrible reaction, been off it a week today & still need to take tranquilisers & beta blockers to stay calm & sleep at night.

    I was fine until at day 18 I changed to a different manuafturer. In a wee I was in a very deap depressions. Went back onto the original makers. Took a month to get back to normal. It may be worth trying a different maker.

      Now I am not so sure. The "good" manufacturor has stopped making Mirt. Agreed with the GP to stop which I did without incident over a weak. However since then I have had two bad periods of stress and am now being assessed for treatment for Anxiety and Depression. Before Mirt 5mg a day I had no experience of Anxiety and Depression.

      Is it just coincidence? I am on hormone therapy for prostate cancer; that could be the culprit or both. Any comments, please?
