Hi, please help any advice is welcome..
For as long as I can remember I have suffered with depression and anxiety.
(Didn't realise I had severe anxiety until about 2 weeks ago) . Had a really bad depressive episode about 3-4 weeks ago and was convincing myself I had serious mental illnesses. Any way this got really bad and I saw a doctor who diagnosed me with depression and anxiety. As I wasn't sleeping (5 nights I was prescribed mirtazapine. I have been on 15mg for 16 nights and already I feel so much better, calmer and am able to sleep. My depression is also a lot better. I have had no noticeable side effects from the meds apart from weight gain. A whole stone in 16 days..
I really feel down and extremely anxious about this part as I like being slim. Anyways I am considering swapping mirtazapine to citalopram. But don't know the best way to go about it and also have heard some bad thing about cit. I am worried about not being able to sleep without the mirt.
Please help me as I don't know what to do. I really don't want to put on weight. As I am 100 percent sure this will increase my depression which will then increase my anxiety.
Please send me some advice. Thanks xx
