Changed from Fluoxetine to Mirtazapine

Posted , 5 users are following.

Does Mirtazapine really give you an appetite , I have just changed from fluoxetine 40 mg to Mirtazapine 15 mg and after taking the first dose I never thought I was going to waken up . I slept all night and practically all day after taking just 15 mg. 

I must say I have not stopped thinking about sweets etc and eventually ate lots of chocolate . I keep saying to myself I have a big enough weight problem without gaining any more . So I'm going to really try and get this thinking of food out of my head . Has anyone managed to do this ?????

    I've noticed a slight appetite increase but I find planning out what I'm going to eat for the day in advance helps and I've only gained a couple of lbs. Also having unfattening sweet snacks like fruit, sugar-free jelly and flying saucers (the sweets - 5 calories each or 80 for a full bag!)
