    Hi Linz 

    sorry I can't help you much as I'm going through the mirtazapine withdraws myself and I've been hit with all them ,itching,sweats,upset tummy,headaches,anixty,low moods the list goes on... I'm close to my 4week free of mirtazapine and I'm finding the withdrawals are now coming in waves which is awful anixty being the worse,are you taking any meds to help with withdrawals ? I take propanol (beta blockers)which slows heart rate down a little... reading through the posts on different sites it seems at no matter what dose you stop at you get the withdrawls symptoms...

    Did mirtazapine not agree with you ? Or where they just not helping you ?

      Hi yeah I take propanalol 2 and vitamin b complex as it’s suppose to help with withdrawal this is the 4th time I’ve tried to come off them but had to reinstate all other attempts as I couldn’t handle the ill effects. Your doing really well 4 weeks off them my longest was 21 days, the gp has gave me fluoxetine but I really don’t want to be dependent on AD anymore!! I started to become ill from taking mirtazipine so I cut down over a year but I just want to feel my normal self again.

      Hi 

      i was changed onto mirtazapine last year starting at 15mg and went up to 45mg which caused so much anixty,never suffered from anixty in my life until I used mirtazapine,doc stopped my 45mg and changed me to different anti depressant which was unbearable I went back 15mg mirtazapine but they never really helped me just made me sleep and caused more anixty also piled on a lot of weight..To be honest being taken of 45mg has them same withdrawls as being taken of the 15mg so I truly believe we just have to hang in there with the awful symptoms and pray it won't take to long until we start to feel better.. I can't take fluoxetine makes me feel worse...like yourself I just to get back to my normal self though god only knows how long these hateful symptoms will last....keep me posted on how your getting on and I wish you all the best in this awful rollercoaster ride....

      I was on 15mg for about 9months doc told me just to stop them but I had 1 tablet left so halfed it and took 7.5mg last 2 nights...have you used kalms herbal tablets ? I've saw a lot of people trying these which they say helps with the panic,I've used them myself didn't think they helped me but you might be different...good luck and if there's anything I can help you with just send me a message,think talking to some one who is going through the same seems to help a little...

      Hi Gretel

                   Sorry I'm just seeing this now. I'm 5wks tomorrow of mirtazapine and feel better now yes think propana do help a little as it was anixty that was worse for me when I stopped mirtazapine, still not sleeping great but if the other withdrawals stay away I can cope with the not sleeping part.... how are you feeling ? its unreal how many side effects comes from this withdrawal yet docs keep saying there is none.....

      Hi Gretel

                   Hope the propanalol is helping you and that's great you got your hair really does make ou feel better.... That's me going into my 6th week of mirtazapine still have anixty but I'm trying just to ride it out ( hard to do at times) but il never ever take another mirtazapine in my life... I know they work for some ( seems to be a very few ) they surely didn't work for me ... I've slept better last 2 nights so fingers crossed I'm over the worse but as you know withdrawals have nasty habit of popping up again so for now I take one day at a time and just can't wait until they are well gone from my body. Keep me updated on how your getting on.... 

      Good luck

      Hello,

      Geez...took 60 propanolol er last nite. Didn't fall asleep til 6 am. Feel like the walking dead, no amount of coffee is going to fix this. Been trying, 8 cups. Thank God for my supportive bf. He lets me be me and its ok. If i can get to the shower that would be grand. I'm having horrendous hot flashes, dizziness and nausea. My moods are flipping wildly. Trying to keep in mind the greater cause. This is today, this is not my life. Stay strong my fellow travelers. XO

I'm starting wk 6 free of mirt and just pray it gets easier, I just take 1 day at a time and hope for the best unreal what a mess these tabs can leave you in
