Hey. I was wondering, I saw my doctor today and long story short I am coming off Mirtazipine. He told me to just stop taking it. He has started me on Veneflaxine too. He said that the Mirtazipine is interacting with my Desloratidine. Is that normal advise? Just to stop taking Mirtazipine suddenly? Will I get some side effects although he has replaced it with Veneflaxine?

    Do not stop taking it suddenly.

    What dose are you on ?

    You can take ven and mirt together. I do.

      How long off ? You may be fine...i hope so but be aware withdrawals can kick in uo to 4 weeks off....even longer sometimes.

      2 1/2 years I think it was.

      Just coming off it.

      I've started the Veneflaxine again I was on it before hand but came off it to see if something could be ruled out. Now I'm back on it.

    You wouldn't be told to stop suddenly if you were not going on something else. It must be because your going on another tablet.
