I am on day 12 of Mirtazapine 15mgs ive had all the common usual suspect side effects
weight gain, increased appetite, dizziness. drowsiness, dry mouth, consipation, very strange dreams and increased urination.
Went from sleeping 13 hours back to reguakr 7 hours now, out for the count. I always take my tablet at 10pm. The last two nights, after taking the tablet ive had a sensation of my throat tightening and finding it uncomfortable to swallow water. Has anyone else had that and during the day a weird sensation of being on a wave or on a rocky boat?
Havent driven for 11 days so thought i'd give it a go only down the road to the supermarket. My first outing on my own since taking the meds. I was ok driving , But once I got out the car and went to get a shopping trolley I felt weird.
I continued into the supermarket selecting my purchases, but I felt strange, my legs felt like jelly, my head was in a state of dizzyness. I felt ok in mind apart from tension in my right shoulder, this was bothering me abit. People around me shopping didnt alarm me. I continued shopping down the aisles buying along the way, talking to myside in my mind,, Saying to myself no panic, no panic, making sure I was taking steps to breath normally all around my shopping trip.
I managed to even self seve and pack my self at the checkouts, but I was still in a weird bubble of numbness and feeling lightheaded and no weight in my legs. Anyone else had similar feelings or experiences on the early days of taking Mirtazapine.
I must add I am taking Mirtazapine for anxiety and I have counselling set up to work along the medication.
I was on Mirtazapine 4 years ago for 5 years for fepression But talking more openly with family and looking back at the family tree, it appears the condition anxiety and depreesion runs through my mums blood line. So medication , exercise, a healthy diet, and counselling seems to be the postitive continous way forward. To be able to sustain a good quality of life. As the last 4 yeras off the medication have been long, painful unhapp and at times a very lonely journey.
I know each one has different degrees, levels and types of the various side effects, but it be helpful to hear from anyone who is on the same dosage as me and around day 12 or remembers how the early days were for them
The mirtazapine has lifted my mood and i feel more focused in my mind, I do actually feel happier within myself already just need to knock the side effects on the head as I am keen to get back to work.
feel free to share your experiences and any, advice thanks for listening.
