I've been on 15mg of Mirtazpine for six weeks now for anxiety with depression after a recent diagnosis. I'm still very new to all of this. I think I can honestly say that my more traditional anxiety symptoms have definitely improved ie palpitations, nervousness, nausea and being jumpy.
With that said, the total number of symptoms that I was experiencing before being diagnosed was vast - I never knew that anxiety can mean having so many different symptoms at different times. I still get some of these symptoms but cannot tell whether it's just some minor ongoing side effects from the Mirtazapine or the symptoms themselves that the medication isn't tackling eg momentary dizziness, sudden 'warm adrenal' feeling shooting up the legs, uneasy sensations and feeling low.
I think I'm on the right road generally with recovery as I also have a regime of various self-help measures such as regular exercise, daily meditation, drinking plenty of water and am starting some CBT later this week. I just thought by now my overall mood would be lifted and the remaining anxiety symptoms would be improved but the Mirtazapine just doesn't seemed to have tackled this. Or is 6 weeks still too soon?
My doctor put me up to 30mg only last week but after the second day I was starting to feel quite ill and nauseous. This worsened after a couple more days and I really felt that i wasn't able to tolerate this higher dose so I went back to 15mg and am now feeling normal again.
I know we're all different and these meds affect us all differently but how long should I give Mirtazapine before I can say that it's done all it's going to do?
And does anyone else experience ongoing side-effects from Mirtazapine even though they've been taking it for a while?
Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!
