Hi All. I was on Mirtazapine for about a month. I had a bad experience with the drug. It did help me to sleep for the first couple weeks and my appetite was noticeably improved shortly after taking the drug. I was losing a lot of weight and was one of the primary reasons I was put on this drug. Within a few days of taking the drug, I was literally going into the kitchen every 30 minutes to snack on Triscuits, cookies and any other snack available. I was never like this before taking this drug. I have since discontinued Mirtazapine as I was experiencing a lot of bad side effects. It has now been 3-4 weeks off the drug, but I still notice my appetite is on overdrive. They say it takes some antidepressants (ADs) a couple weeks to be effective as it takes time to upregulate brain receptors. I'm thinking there is a similar issue when discontinuing a drug, i.e., it may take some time to down regulate the receptors toward normal. For those that have discontinued Mirtazapine in the past, did you notice continued increased appetite for a period of time? Did you appetite ever get back to normal? Thanks in advance.
