    I’m currently coming off of it because it didn’t help my anxiety. It worked wonders for my depression though! I was on it for three months, tapered off by 50%, and I only felt really sick and depressed for one day. However I have had increased anxiety, temperature changes, and weird brain fog/head sensations and head pressure, nausea. Nothing too bad except  increased anxiety. I think you’ll be fine coming off of it

    Hi, I was on mirtazapine 15 mg for over 6 months and it worked for me. I managed to come off it ok too as I felt better. I was on it has I lost both parents in a short time. I could not eat, sleep, function. I wanted to die seriously but this med saved me. Remember everyone reacts differently to this med. One cap does not fit all. If it's helping you take it. It helps you get your head together and think straight. No tablet can fix depression and anxiety. It just covers over the cracks and helps your mind heal . It helps calm you down. Don't read the bad reports, there are plenty of positive posts out there. If you Google paracetamol, asprin, there will be negative reports , side affects etc but millions take these meds with no ill affects. So please don't rush coming off it if it's helping you.
