Keep being sick! Mirtazapine withdrawal or propranolol

Posted , 5 users are following.

Right so i was on mirtazapine for around a year for anxiety & depression, they helped the depression but my anxiety got worse, anyway, after putting on nearly 3 stone out of nowhere i learned one of mirtazapines most common side affects is weight gain. Along with feeling like it wasnt helping anymore i went to the doctors and was prescribed a Beta blocker called Propranolol for anxiety. They have helped my anxiety MASSIVELY.. i was taking them for a week without any symptoms or aide affects until the 2nd week, when i got up on a morning and was just randomely being sick. after that, its happened 2 other days and today ive been ill keep getting hot sweats then running to the toilet to be sick. its completely random times & when i havent even ate anything. Question is.. am i withdrawing from mirtazapine thats making me sick or is it the new tablets? anyone had a similar experience? ive been on quite a few different meds over the last few years & never had symptoms of being sick.

    My guess is the mirtazapine.

    What dose were you on and did you taper at all ?

    Are you getting any other symptoms ?

    It started 1 week after stopping mirt ?
