Hi there. I was on Mirtazapine for about 8 months to help with anxiety. I was on 30 mg for around 5 months and 15 mg for the rest .Duringg that time I gained around 15 kg (33 lbs). My doctor and I decided it would be a good idea to come off them due to the weight gain as I was feeling much better. I tapered for around 2 months then came off the last few mg very rapidly.
I have been off them for 6 weeks and have yet to lose any of the weight I gained. I am active, running or playing sport most days and am eating much less now.
I feel fantastic as far as my anxiety and depression are concerned (the best I have felt in years), but not being able to lose any weight yet is very disheartening. I was always pretty trim and now I can't even look at my naked body in the mirror.
Has anyone had trouble losing the weight after coming off?
How long will it take before the weight should come off?
Any help would be great. I am at a loss
