I have taken 15mg for just over 2 weeks. This was for anxiety (was having raised heart rate at night) & was to help me sleep. After starting tablets I suffered from increased anxiety where i could not sit still , an increased heart rate & ringing in my ears.dry mouth. I slept well for first night but not so well the second night & then woke during the nights after . Had to ring 111 & Dr's a number of times. I was told it was my anxiety & to keep taking tablets..But was given diazapan & sleeping tablets to help. I took 30mg of Mirt on duty Dr's advice for 2 nights but had increased heart rate & was then advised to take 15mg for 3 nights until saw GP. I have slept when taking 15mg but have woken few times during night.
& i felt slightly drowsy in day time. I could also feel
increased heart rate . I was calmer & less restless GP believed it was my anxiety not tablets causing bad effects but as I had issues with tablets she has told me to stop taking them & to use diazapam to sleep if need be. GP will ring me next week to see how i am doing but feels i need meds. She told me that OAP's are prescribed Mirt as they are safe & have less side effects. She said it was my decision & i could just stop taking them. I stopped Mirt last night. My heart rate has increased & i could not sleep. The 2mg of diazapam i had to take at 1am only worked for a few hours. I now have permanent
palpatations ..worse lying down.. stopping me sleep. I had read bad reports re Mirt which worried me & wanted to stop before things potentially got worse..but can't bear thought of having palpatations for much longer or starting new tablets. Sorry have gone on but don"t know if GP is right & it is my anxiety not tablets & whether to persevere with Mirt .. take 1 tonight to see if i sleep..or not .. i feel much worse after stopping for 1 night.. but have read that missing i night when taking tablets should not matter..Any advice appreciated as i am at wirs end.. ...Many thanks
