So I visited my GP today about my concerns with my upped dosage of 30mg of Mirtazapine. 

I had been on 30mg for about a week and my anxiety and depression increased, my thoughts started to be more obsessive and I could not stop over thinking. Which lead to nausea and vomiting

My Doctor said to me today that my dosage had been upped too quickly and was likely to be causing my increase in anxiety. 

So now i'm back to 15mg, and I've been prescribed some domperidone tablets to help with the nausea.

Hopefully I start to feel better within the next few days.

    Hi Robert, sorry to here of your troubles. Do you think the nausea and vomiting was caused by a panic attack or the increase of mirtazapine?

      Hi Ryan,

      I think it was both. I recently had a bad situation that left me feeling depressed and anxious. Which was one of the reasons I had my dosage upped. But because I had only started mirtazapine a couple of weeks before it must have been too quick to up the dosage.

      Hi Ryan,

      The past few days have been pretty rough. I keep feeling nauseated, my face feels hot and burns up every now and then. I get moments of high anxiety and panic. I'm just hoping it clears up soon.

      That's always a stressful situation, I always found I had to make my doctors listen sometimes. Could you make an appointment with a different doctor?
