I am so fed up with self I don't know what to do. Been on antidepressant for past 8 years for 5years fluoxetine 20mgs only, then combination of fluoxetine 20 mgs and clomipramine 3x daily, 15 months ago fluoxetine increased to 40 then 60 MGs. Had course CBT DEC - July. Came off clomipramine whilst having CBT as I was doing OK. Sept this year saw a deterioration in mental health GP decided to change meds to Mirtazapine, I had to gradually reduce fluoxetine over 3 weeks but was prescribed diazepam to help with increase in anxiety at this time. I then started mirt 15mgs 8 weeks ago. Sleep immediately improved, but also started with very bizzare vivid dreams which i still have, then weight gain which hasn't gone down well with me. I gave also suffered with swollen ankles and feet (Gp does know) all my muscles ache msking me feel old and making it harder to carry out fairly simple tasks which pre mirt i had no physical problems doing. today I have noticed a tingling sensation in my finger tips. I am due to see Gp next week do I continue with mirt, ask to see psychiatrist (not seen one for approx 18 years.) I keep telling myself there is nothing actually wrong with me, and feel i am just making it all up, then I the next breath I am suspecting i may have some undiagnoed psychiatric condition. ( having a nursing background doesn't' help either). I feel nobody cares and wishing i could die. ( don't think i would do anything) but thanks for reading this any replys will be great fully recieved
