Hey again, I posted a few weeks back having been started on MIrtazapine 15mg Oral-Dispersable tablets. It's been pretty good minus one collapse and a few constipation episodes, but that's not important.
I've been upped to 30mg and the type of medication has changed from Oral-Dispersables to Film Coated. I've got a few questions if anyone can help:
- With the rise to 30mg, should side effects kick into gear again? I know some of them are rather paradoxical in nature, but I do want to be prepared for what could potentially happen.
- Weight gain is still a 'concern' for me in the sense that I am not bothered by it, but I want to keep a close eye. Does the dose increase lead to further increases in appetite / weight gain, or is it similar to sleepiness in which it is paradoxical in nature?
- I've struggled taking tablets with swallowing whole and no chewing - does anyone have any tips on taking them whole? Does the film coating also create more problems in health, as I don't want to be throwing up on them (I had the same with 10mg Citalopram which were film coated, and I'm wondering if that is what made me sick in the three days of taking Citalopram.)
