Hi all,

I stopped taking Mirtazapine 7 days ago and have never felt so good, so much better than when i was on them and the change was immediate. I'm waiting for the crash but so far all is good. Can anyone tell me when it will be completely out of my system. I have been on 15 mg for 4 months.

    10 to 14 days my doctor told me. Mirtazapine leaves the body mainly through the kidneys and partly through the bowel. I'm glad you are feeling good. It's a good sign. Stay with it and stay positive ☺

    Fogster, if you were only on 15 mg for 4 months, your withdrawal should be somewhat less than what most of us have. I am pleased that you are feeling great. I was on 45 mgs for over 6 years, and the crash was awful. Keep your fingers crossed, as you may not have the misery that most people on the post has had. Most of us don't take the time to write anything unless there are already unpleasant issues. I am back on 7.5, and in one month  am cutting them in half for another month (3.75), then every other day for a month, and then try it again. I wish you luck, please do the same for me. Regards, David

      Jeanette, I am glad that you were able to tough it out, and that you are beginning to feel better. I, too, was off the mirt for several days, but due to having IBS symptoms, I couldn't take them both, the pain and generally sick feeling, so my doc put me back on 7.5 mgs. I hope that I can get off them at some point. Thanks for sharing.

      David
