I’ve been on 45mg of Mirtazapine for just over 4 years now. I was prescribed it for my depression, anxiety, insomnia and critical low weight. It extremely helped with all those areas, and my life became a much easier thing to deal with because of this drug. Though, my weight seemed to stay the same.
Only recently I’ve been rapidly gaining weight after 4 years of being on it. Over 10kgs (22lbs) in just a few months!!
I was a heavy marijuana smoker for majority of those 4 years, and recently gave up several months ago. I’m wondering if the marijuana was holding back the common side effect of weight gain and all of a sudden I’m being impacted by this side effect.
The weight gain is seriously affecting my mood now, and suddenly I’m feeling depressed again. I’m seeing my doctor this week to discuss the possibility of coming off it.
I’m just curious if anyone else has had a similar experience? Especially in the long term, because the only experiences of weight gain I found online is with short term usage.
Thanks for any help!
