Hello, Im new here but I was just trying to get an idea of whats going on with these drugs.
So my gf of 4 years was taking sertraline for a month or so before she decided she needed a break from the relationship, she said she felt like she couldn't love anymore and that she didn't want to burden me with her problems along with a ton of other things. A month has gone by and communication carried on although I felt like the relationship was doomed, lost forever. I still want to be there for her and help, just in case she comes back around to me. But it seems like it may take years and I dont know how long I can hang around.
She is now reducing her sertraline doseage over a week and will move onto mirtazapine due to other side effects the serts were giving her. I understand mirtazapine does the same thing to the brain as the SSRIs but in a different way.
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if the mirtazapine causes a strain on relationships? A feeling of not being able to love? And if you can give me some advice on how to go about treating her right in this new territory of experimenting with anti-depressants?
Thanks, hope it wasnt too much waffle for you to read. I feel abit lost and I just want to help.
