I've gained a lot of weight on mirtazapine?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi! I recently decided to stop mirtazapine, as i gained about 30 lbs on it. I am curious, if anyone knows, how soon after the medication stops, do you stop feeling so hungry & start seeing any difference in weight, on the scale and/or visually. My weight is starting to really get to me. Thank you in advance.

    I put weight on mainly because I'm inactive due to disability. I came off mert around two months ago last time I got weighed I had only lost 1kg it's so frustrating as I badly need to lose weight.

    almost immediately after getting completely off. I started Keto/carnivore which honestly helped my depression lift within days. I also gained 30 lbs on this horrid medication. Been off 3 months now and feeling great! Never thought I would get through this journey but I did and so can you!! I have lost 15lbs.
