Hi everyone. Since february, due to massive stress at work I started suffering with anxiety. Expierienced all kind of intrusive thoughts, felt like I was going crazy. Doctor put me on mirtazapine15mg which brought little relief to my anxiety but started making me feel depressed and not myself. I felt numb. Gp stopped it cold turkey after 3 months and put me on fluoxetine 10 mg for a week then increased the dose up to 20mg.( I was on fluoxetine before for 7 years for OCD and never suffered any side effects). Before stress at work I was year free from ADs. Since stopping mirtazapine and starting fluoxetine I feel constant nasuea. It wakes me up in the morning, in the middle of the night and doesnt help me fall asleep. Nothing works on it. Tried antisickness tablets, ginger tea, hot water bottle, omeprazole. Nothing works. Today would have been day 19 on fluoxetine but due to side effects my doctor stopped it and told me to start mirtazapine 15mg from sunday. My side effects on fluoxetine were: extreme anxiety , it was burning my whole body, rushing, intrusive thoughts, feeling like Im going crazy, like Im not being myself. Felt like I was being brain washed.Was getting bad tremors, insomnia. I know that with ADs usually gets worse before it gets better but this was to extreme. But Im wondering what causing this nasuea? My gp said it can be stressed related but even diazepam didnt bring any relief. Has anyone expierienced something like that? What can I do to stop it or bring some relief. Its really making my life hell on top with anxiety. Didnt have it before. Dont know what to do about it. And Im so confused about taking mirtazapine again and thinking about trying to cope with anxiety without it and see how it goes. Any advice ? 🙂
