Help docs gave me loads of meds

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have been cutting from 200 to 150 of setraline and 4mg to 3mg of diazapan. Which I have been on for 8 years.

Went to doc Friday and he gave me 30 mirtazapine!! To be honest I did see the dose, last two days been vague anxiety and pain. I don't trust his decision they want to ween me off the setraline and diazapan but this seems excessive

    That seems right for cutting down to go the next dose down what your probably experiencing is withdrawal with the increased aniexty then from starting the new meds this will pass its just getting through it and taking each day as it comes. I have been through sertraline withdrawal myself cold Turkey due to serotonin syndrome wasn't nice but luckily it doesn't last very long so hopefully you will feel better quickly. Think it was just over a week x

      Take what your doctor told you to take if he said 30mg then yes it should stop withdrawal syptoms swapping meds then coming off them completely. Matazapine 30mg is the second dose the lower dose of 15mg is used mainly for sleep problems but most will need the 30mg or 45mg for depression/aniexty x

    Discuss your concerns with him,then make your own mind up.
