have just come across this site, having been prescribed mirtazapine recently. have had probs with anxiety and depression for long time (20 years!) and tried lots of different pills. only one i could tolerate (for 7 years) was low dose of nefazodone (dutonin), then it was withdrawn from market. always had terrible side effects with other antidepressants which led me to abandon tablets at an early stage.
because of this, i decided to chop up my 15mg mirtazapine tablet into quarters and i took one quarter at 10pm the night before last. by 10.30pm i was almost asleep standing up and went to bed at 11pm, not waking until 12 hours later! felt out of it for rest of day and even went back to bed around tea time for an hour or so. not taken any more tablet yet and having read postings on this website, am really not sure where to go from here. had i taken a whole 15mg tablet, i could have been asleep for 2 days!!
would really welcome comments from other folk on intolerance/hypersensitivity to medication for depression. other people all seem to be on much higher doses. have other people experimented with weaning themselves onto medication as I have (i have also tried using liquid medication, so you can increase the dose very gradually). but not all antidepressants come in liquid form. any similar experiences/opinions welcome.
