going back to Citalopram after taking Mirtazapine.

Posted , 3 users are following.

I need some assistance please.

I have been taking Mirtazapine for 7 days, and only just noticed something isn't right.

I had vivid dreams, and increase in appetite I can handle that.

Now I am starting to feel odd sensations, in my skin, they call this parathesia.

Chills and the occassional rapid heart rate.

I am going to see my doctor about this on monday but.

Can I switch back to Citalopram, if I skip the Mirtazapine tonight, or should I just go cold turkey till Monday.

I am anxious not to take any more Mirtazapine, but I am anxious that if I don't take anything I am going to be in a worse situation come Monday.

My doctor switched from Citalopram to Mirtazapine because of my increase in anxiety.

to be honest I thought Mirtazapine was a wonder drug, and now I am not so sure.

Please help if you can.

    thank you Ian, I have decided to stick with them until monday and then see my doctor and see what he suggests, I love the dreams as crazy as they are, but I can live without this parathesia, see what the doctor says on monday, of course my foolish anxiety kicked in and said I had Serotonin Syndrome, love/hate my little Miss anxious chatter box in my head.

    I have always been told, when switching antidepressants, to leave a week in between, before starting new ones.

    My weight piled on with Cit and dreams horrendous. Off them but still have the dreams . Early days.
