Ok so after starting 15mg mirt back in Nov then up to 22.5 from end of Jan I had to go back down to 15mg 2 weeks ago. The drug was a lifesaver for my depression I was at the lowest I could go after my mum died and had stopped eating for 3 weeks . But now the side effects of this drug are far far outweighing the benifits ..symptoms are extreme dizziness almost like I'm drunk for most of the day only going when it's time to take another! Blurred vision stomach pain extreme gas, bladder problems back and leg pain I could go on and on. I now have a trapped nerve in my neck which has crippled me (not down to mirt but a recurring problem after a head injury in my 20s) and because I'm on mirt I can't really take any other drug on top to help the pain due to being sensitive to almost every antidepressant they tried! The doc has now said she want to take me off the mirt to see if that's the cause of the symptoms and has told me that I have to take one night then miss one night for the next 2 weeks. This scares the hell out of me as surely this is messing around too much with this. I just want off this drug now as I have no quality of life just pain and dizziness and constant nausea
