    Hi Charles

    Just a thought ... sometimes Mirt' can "poop out" - stop working, it can then send you into involuntary withdrawal, with symtpoms equal to those of the reason you went on it in the first place.  Anxiety, insomnia, nausea etc ... look out for any other symtoms, and be aware if this is happening to you, you will still have to do a slow taper.

    Hope its not, !

    Best wishes
