    Hi John. My computer just swallowed the reply i was writing so you might get this twice! The leaflet that comes with my mirtazapine tablets (i take 30mg) lists headaches as a common side-effect so it could be that. However it also says to contact your doctor or pharmacist if you experience any side-effects so it might be an idea to do that if the burning always comes the same length of time after taking your tablets. The only time i've had burning is when i was reducing my dose in an attempt (unsuccessful) to withdraw. No-one else has posted on this stream saying they've had burning, so it could be worth enquiring. Pixie.
