How significant will Mirtazapine withdrawal be after only being on it for 2 weeks and when begin?

I'm tapering from 30mg to 15mg to "test the waters", and have only been on it for 2 weeks. How long from now should I expect to experience withdrawals, if any, from the drug?

    You have only been on mirt 2 weeks or 15mg 2 weeks ? Did you drop straight down from 30 to 15 ?

    Everybody is different. All I can offer is my own experience. I didn’t go down by a certain chronological preset. I go down and stay at that dose until I no longer experience side effects then go down again. It’s not a race. The whole point is to feel better. :-)

    It can take as little as five days to register a dosage change in the system so I'd expect you would know in a week's time how you are doing with that drop.
