Hi, I have been on Mirt for nearly 2 weeks now, was on Fluoxetine for 4 weeks before but didn't see any improvement, couldn't sleep or hardly eat as felt sick so doctor had me stop & started me on 15mg of Mirt, when I first started I felt better but then the last few days have had increased anxiety & nausea again, + feeling down & depressed. How long does it take to start feeling effect? Thanks

      hi, i was also prescribed pregabalin for anxiety.This also worked great for me, 75 ng twice a day for anxiety. it kicks in within hours or a few days. Its a off the cuff medication that can help anxiety. please Google to see some positive results. my cousin and a close friend have just started it for anxiety and it's turned there lives around. I came off it easy as it can be prescribed in 25 mg doses which makes each drop easier each time when tapering down. it really helps calm u down.

      Ok thanks will ask my doctor about it this week, I have been on 15mg of Mirt for nearly 3 weeks & it is helping so far with appetite & sleep but not yet for Anxiety & Depression, hopefully taking the Pregabalin will help too especially for my Anxiety...

    I just hate this nausea the most, I thought Mirt was meant to work against Nausea? Maybe because I am constipated, the nausea has kicked in? Anyone else have in the first few weeks? Thanks
