Just after a little reassurance from anyone who has successfully come off mirtazapine. I was on the tablets for about 8 months for anxiety and depression, while I was on them I certainly felt less anxious and I slept so well but I've never been a fan of take tablets, I have to take thyroxine every night for hypo thyroid and that's irritating enough so I decied to come off the the mirt, I was only on 15mg and it took me 6 weeks to tapper down until 6/7 weeks ago I took my last dose, the first few weeks were bloody great. I thought I had totally avoided the withdrawal symptoms. That was up until the night of the floyde mayweather fight, the next morning I woke up after a bit of a late night and bang... I thought a bus had hit me. Crippling fatigue. My thought were all scrambled, I almost couldn't stand I was so dizzy, I was itchy all over my eyes were blurry and I just felt terrible. It's been almost 4 weeks of feeling exactly the same. Feeling sick, being sick. Hot and cold sweats, totally body weakness, even if I go for a short walk I'm totally nakared after, my asthma is bad, I have flu symptoms, intermittent headaches, feeling of swelling in my head, it's crazy. But the worst of all and most worrying it's I keep getting heart flutters that totally knock me for 10. If I'm totally honest I can feel each day that it improves but only very very minimaliy. I'm just wondering how long people have had these symtoms go on for because WOW this is hard. I'm determind to get thought becaus I no longer feel anxious or depressed just incredibly sick. I'd be really grateful to hear any thoughts cheers nick
