I've searched the Web for an answer but can't seem to find the right one...
I have been on Mirtazapine for 16 months and just had a baby 2 months ago. I decided to come off Mirtazapine as it was a nightmare for night feeds and my mental health has really improved, basically I felt ready to move on. I cut down from 30mg to 15mg for 2 weeks, then stopped completely on the advice of my doctor.
For 2 weeks I felt great, then started feeling rotten. Headache constantly, nausea, dizziness, extremre fatigue, itchy swollen eyes and allergy symptoms. This sounds like Mirtazapine withdrawal.
2 weeks later I still feel like this. My doctor didn't warn me about this, and I have my beautiful baby to take care of. It's upsetting to say the least. My doctor has since left and her replacement was of no help.
Does anyone know how long I can expect this to last
last? Mentally I am fine apart from being upset that I'm ill and can't do what I need to do. I'm on no other
If someone could help or advise I would be so grateful, I don't want to get too down about it, but I'm so worried this will go on and on. I really don't want to restart my meds,.it's time to go medication free for me.
Thankyou for reading x
