Been on 15mg Mirtazapine for 5 weeks now , but i am really dizzy all time and have pins and needles and numbness in my face and feet. Its like a migraine but the aura does not happen, just sensitive eyes and flickering. Can anyone relate please.

      Hi anne thanks for replying . Helps to know this is not just me. My gp puts everything down to anxiety.I know this is not its different.Due to me being bedridden with a long term illness, i cannot get to see doctors just get mostly phone consultations via my carer. I would be interested to know what your doctor comes up wth if you wouldnt  mind letting me know. Nice to get a second opinion.

      Hi Anne thanks for that. I to  k eep having bad anxiety and panic attacks. I was blaming it all on me coming off amitriptyline after four years and going straight  onto mirt. Like a discontinution syndrome.All i know is   i have coped with my illness for years but have never felt more depressed in my life. The mirtazapine is my last resort my doc said so i have to stay on it. I dare not come off it in case i get worse, but i am like a cabbage now so how much worse could it get. God knows.
