    Yes, i was on dosulepin for about ten years and i was told i couldnt take them anymore for the same reasons as you. i was also put onto MIRTAZAPINE 15 mg to start with.

    I an now on a reducing dose from 45mg.

    i have also lost weight and feel as if i have a constant cold, so i know and understand what you are going through. The advice on here always seems to be to drink plenty of water.

    I felt so much better on the dosulepin.

    I on dosulepin again since December. as due to other problems I went to see private psychiatrist..well nightmare started. put me on mirtazapine and tried it for 3 months an it made me feel awful everyday. also tried proponal which made me feel sick an more anxious. moving on and having two crisis intervention a nice psychiatrist at bradgate finally put me back on dosulepin hooray they listened after 4 months 2 drugs and trying lofepramine as reluctant to put me back on dosulepin. been back on it since December a lot better I have good an bad days. on a low dose of diazepam wen needed too. I had a lot going on on life the last 12 months. slowly healing. and back at work after 6 months off. still long way to go but so glad I'm back on them. I never had heart problems although that was reluctantance to re prescribe and they gave me ecg but never in 20 yrs of being on them. though of mirtazapine fills me with dread. so hood luck. I'm having CBT too at mo. and use meditation apps. one called insight timer is almost free and let's meditate free too. good luck. and this situation we are all in at moment makes mh worse. sending hugs
