Day 30

Posted , 4 users are following.

So It's been 30 days since I started Mirtazapine,

I started on 15mg, and I felt great. I felt like my old self again. But a few days later a situation occurred that made me depressed and anxious. 

My low mood started to effect me more and more, mainly on my appetite and stomach.

By day 18 I decided to go back to my GP, it wasn't my normal GP though. But they upped my dosage to 30mg.

The higher dosage only made matters worse, I became more nauseated. With obsessive thinking and increased anxiety and depression. 

So by day 25 I went back to my GP, they told me my dosage had been upped too quickly, and they put me back onto 15mg.

It's been 5 days since then and I still feel pretty nauseated and anxious. I started to get more and more concerning symptoms: a burning/hot flush sensation in my face, throwing up acidy bile, shaking and trembling. And a lump in my throat sensation.

I went back to my GP yesterday. He prescribed me 50mg of Cyclizine and told me to carry on taking Mirtazapine for a week, he signed me off work for this week and said if there weren't any improvements in this week to come back to be reassessed.

My appetite still feels low, and the nausea is still there. The shaking seems to have gotten worse as well. And I did end up vomiting this morning.

I just hope something works out this week.
