    Hello,

    Thank you for your message. I'm sorry your not having a good time on them. Have you told the gp of this, i think you best. 

    These didn't agree with me at all i took them for 2 weeks & suddenly 6 days ago got terrible chest pains so stopped them as i was so scared.

    How was the mirtazapine for you. I might give them a try as the gp has mentioned these. I was worried of the weight gain & drowsiness.

      Im going to its just it wasnt as much of a problem till Friday night and over the weekend, just find it strange its taken nearly a week before side effect to pop up, usually it happens within a few days.

      Damn thats horrible glad you stopping dont want pains to get worst.

      When I was having stomach problems.I lost a lot of weight but I was always skinny like size 6-8 so when I gained weight and got an appetite it was awesome since I didnt feel like that for years, obvs the higher doseage I went the more I put on so 15 I was about 10 then 30 I was 12-14 and same with 45, I didnt feel drowsiness at all, had no bad side effects, they helped me sleep if I took them before midnight but nothing bad in the morning. 

      I guess an option for the weight gain is work out a little but with me on the lower doseage I didnt put much weight on, but 30 I increased weight quickly so if weight would be an.issue only sick with the low dosage for a week or two to see how you go but I wouldnt recommend higher if you dont want to see dress sizes skip by

    Hello,

    How did you get on at the doctors? Hope your feeling better.

    So it's true that the mirtazapine is a weight gainer. Everyone says the same. I see my gp tomorrow so i will see what they say. If it makes me better & i gain some weight well i would rather that than be ill all the time.

    I will let you know how i get on.

    Take care

    Butterfly xx
