A bit of background information-
I was on 15 mirtazapine for three years and weaned myself off them successfully (very slowly, took me just over a year).
To to stresses in life I had to go back on them. I went back on 15mg but they didn't seem to work, so the gp upped the dose to 30mg.
Well I've been on 30mg for 6 months now and they have really helped my mood (though sonetimes I do feel a little numb)! But they make me extremely tired! I know sedation is one of the effects of this pill, but the exhaustion is killing me, it's really extreme to the point where it's taking over my life. I can't do my job to the best of my ability and I'm quite snappy, also, I sonetimes feel like I'm in a dream, really spaced out.
It's so bad that I actually think I might have chronic fatigue syndrome. BUT, I know that it could just be (and I hope that it is) the tablets making me feel this way. There's only one way to find out and that's lowering the dose.
So if you have gone from 30mg to 15mg I'd like to know how you did it, how easy it was and any side effects you had?
When I came off the tablets last time j didn't drop the dose, I took them alternate nights, then one every three nights so I have no experience of this.
I know that it effects everyone differently but Any information on the best way to do it would be immensely appreciated.
Also, I'm happy to answer any questions about how I successfully came off them in the past.
Thank you x
