I stopped the Mirtazapine 9 days ago, I got down to 3.75mg then stopped. I started reducing last summer. I was experiencing a little sleep disturbance, on 3.75mg but manageable. Since stopping I can get off to sleep but wake after 4 hrs. Then sleep is difficult. I'm starting to feel the symptoms of sleep deprivation. When I try to relax in bed at night I sweat profusely. I'm too cold without the covers but too hot with them, even though it's the middle of winter, my hair is soaked in sweat. I've got a cold this week so some symptoms could be attributed to this. But I wonder are these withdrawal symptoms or am I going cold turkey, or is this a sign I need to stay on them a bit later. I really want to stop them because of my weight gain. I want to persevere, I have no depressive symptoms. This in itself is a joy after all the anxiety I had. But sleep deprivation was the start of my depression many yrs ago.
Any advice welcome.
