I have only just found that this forum exists and it has been a revelation to me to find all of this information, and to find that other people are experiencing similar things.
I've recently been switched to 15mg Mirtazapine from 40mg Citalopram as the Cit was having no notable affect on me.
I started the mirt 6 days ago and have already put on just under 3/4 stone as i cannot stop eating. I made the comment yesterday at the dinner table that I am only stopping eating now out of politeness after having devoured the most enormous plate of food imaginable. I always have had a large apetite, despite being thin, but I'm convinced that this apetite has doubled since being on Mirtazapine.
My quandry is that I began feeling positive affects on my mood in the beginning, but my body seems to have gotten used to it. I'm still having great dreams, but my mood has dropped again. I have a review with my GP next week and feel that I should be asking her to increase my dose as in the beginning it felt like it was really working, yet I'm terrified that an increased dose will increase my apetite and weight even more.
Does anyone have any experience of affect of higher doses on weight gain?
Many thanks for your time
