    I had exactly the same. I have been on fluoxetine for over 6 months now and I had anxiety and panic attacks. I was prescribed Mirtazapine to help with anxiety and sleep. It took abt 6 weeks to totally kick in. I am tethering off the mirtazapine now slowly. Good luck.

      Deborah,

      I noticed you said you are on fluoxetine and mirtazapine. What mg are you taking for both? And you are tapering off? I am taking 30 mg of mirt and 20 mg of fluoxetine just started a couple weeks ago. And i am losing my mind and i think mirtazapine is done for me because that is why doc added mirtazapine.

      I am.taking 20mg fluoxetine and am tapering off mirtzapine 15mg, but was on 30mg. Yes definitely the anxiety gets worse before it gets better. It will all subside. You just have to be patient. It's v hard because you think you will never get better, but believe me you will.

      Good luck.
