how do I go down from 30 mg mirt to 15 mg

Posted , 4 users are following.

Iwent to my shrink and told him that I hav a friend who is on 300 ven and 15mg mirt for three years and feels great. so he said try it. I am on 300ven and 30 mirt. here is my problem. do I just cut  right down to 15 which I did last night or as my regular doc doc sa[d that he did not think it was a problem but if i was worried about withdrawal do one day 15 and one day 30 for two weeks. Then stay at 15. anybody want to vote.LOL

    Hi Harry, i was on 60mg of Mirtazapine for near 7-8yrs then about at least 5mths ago i reduced my Mirtazapine dose of 60mg to 30mg an for me i didn't have any issues and now im still on 30mg.. i did have some issues when i reduced an went

    completely off Zyprexa. So i hope to reduce my Mirtazapine even further at some stage. So i hope you have no issues coming down from 30mg to 15mg as like ive stated i had problems reducing down from 60mg to 30mg. Wishing you good luck Harry. Lloyd from Oz
