I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety just over 20yrs ago and I've been on and off anti-depressants since. I developed agoraphobia and drank to self medicate which led to me becoming an alcoholic. I stopped drinking 3 yrs ago and went onto fluoxitine. My anxiety/agoraphobia vanished and i felt brilliant - too brilliant! Then i felt bloody awful. I was then diagnosed bipolar so they put me on a mood stabilizer Venlafaxine. All i can say is HORRIBLE!!!!!!! They switched me to Mirtazapine 5 months ago and my weight has ballooned and so has my anxiety. I'm now agoraphobic again and have been waiting 2 months for pregabelen. I live on diazapam and sleep. Has anyone else suffered from a dramatic weight increase on this drug? I know I'm getting no exercise because i rarely go out but I'm interested to hear anyone elses experiences. Thanks. Xx
