I would value any comments anyone has about their experience whilst withdrawing from Mirtazapine.
I have been taking it for two years now, being prescribed it for very early waking with horrendous anxiety. Unfortunately ir did nothing for the early morning waking, or the anxiety, but I continued on doctors advice in the hope that it would work. Started on 15mg, increased to 30 mg and when the doctor wanted to up the dose to 45mg I realised that this drug was really not for me. As I am OK during the day (anxiety just 1st thing) I can't think that I am depressed so decided a few months ago to very gradually withdraw, taking the last tablet four weeks ago.
The first two weeks I felt fine and then on third week it hit me like a brick wall full on. Anxiety much much worse in a morning and now, even lasting until about luch time (never had that before!). My doctor tells me that the effects of Mirtazapine should be out of my system after two weeks and that it is a return of the anxiety. As it never left me in the first place I am inclined to think that it is withdrawal symptoms, together with itchy skin, nausea and loss of appetite. I would really value any comments or experiences anyone has had when coming off these terrible drugs.
