We all know the side effects of Mirtazapine and how tough they can be for some, I was just wondering what are some ways people deal with the dizziness, emotional issues, etc. that can affect some people. I'm currently down to a 15 mg dose and have had dizziness and crappy feeling today. I try to workout or keep busy to fight through but it's hard and I sweat like crazy and I'm in good shape.

    I have been taking 15mg mirtazapine since last July. I may just be one of the lucky ones, but I haven't had those side effects. I know different peoplease can react differently to the wane drug though. Maybe you should ask your doctor if another med might be better for you.

    Take care,

    Phyllis

    Ok rob. The dizziness seems to be worst when your dropping your dose but it levels out after your brain settles down. There's not too much you can do about the emotional stuff apart from trying to stay positive. Your doing everything right if your working out and keeping busy, just be reassured that it does go away and you CAN get back to. Normal

      Thanks granto and yes it's worse everytime I drop down. Hopefully it goes away sooner rather than later as it can be tough getting through the day feeling like this and thanks again for reassuring me that it will go away with time. I guess when you feel like your doing everything you think is right and you still feel crappy it's hard to accept and it feels like you never get better.

      That's exactly how I felt pal, I just kept asking myself why why why am I still feeling like this when I'm doing everything right, but it just seems to get better and better over a short period and your mental strength comes back!! Just keep battling rob and it will all get sorted out 👍
