    You’re on what is known as “California Rocket Fuel” (CRF).

    It’s the combo of Effexor (venaflaxine) and Mirtazapine.

    You might want to research it.

    Mirtazapine all on it’s own is no picnic, especially when you want to get off it. You REALLY may want to research withdrawal of Mirtazapine. It’s an eye opener.

    Good luck Harry. You will need more than luck if it turns on you. It does work for some people yes but if it stops and you sufferer withdrawal you've got big problems.

      Please explain yourself. I am well aware of the withdrawals from both drugs. Nearly everyone on ven and some on mirt have bad withdrawals. If you stop each very slowely.....over years it is doable. The main thing is to change your lifestyle whilst stable and not rush coming off these meds. All meds cause withdrawal in some but they can also be very benifitial too. Double edged sword as with so many things in life.

    Only on it a week so far. Has actually helped my anxiety but seems to have made my depression worse. I also take Fluoxetine but was considering a switch to Venlafaxine.
