Let them know about withdrawal!

Posted , 7 users are following.

I just tried to enter a post about letting the drug co's know about how difficult it is to reduce & quit this drug but the moberator has to check it. It's probably because I entered a web address & 'phone no.  I rang my supplier's medical info. line yesterday and reported my own difficulties and the fact that there are a lot of unhappy people out here trying to come off Mirtazapine.  The manufacturers underplay the problems (of course, don't want them taken off the market!).

I suggest you ring the medical info. line of whoever supplies/makes your drug and let them know just what's happening for you.

If enough people do this they may take notice; it's worth a go.

    I stopped taking mirt immediately from 15mg but netdoctor says

    "You should not suddenly stop taking this medicine, as this can cause withdrawal symptoms such as headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, agitation and anxiety. Withdrawal symptoms are temporary and are not due to addiction or dependence on the medicine. They can usually be avoided by stopping the medicine gradually, usually over a period of weeks or months, depending on your individual situation. Follow the instructions given by your doctor when it is time to stop treatment with this medicine. On very rare occasions some people have experienced withdrawal symptoms after accidentally missing a dose of this medicine."
