  • Mirtazapine withdrawal and pre diabetes diagnosis

    I am 4 months off mirtazapine and just been told by my doc that I have pre diabetes. This is completely new to me - has anyone who has come off mirtazapine had the same problem?  It does explain why I have lost so much weight - I thought it was just due to the withdrawal.
