A bit of background before I go on yo ask my question.
Had a needleprick injury at work and got myself in a anxious mess while waiting for results. Doc gave me Citalopram which I stuck at for 8 weeks until I couldn't take no more. It sent my anxiety through the roof and I felt extremely out of control.
I was then prescribed Mirtazapine.
I'm coming up to 8 weeks on it.
1 week on 15mg
4 week on 30mg
3 week on 45mg
It has helped very much with anxiety. That's almost gone. It helps me sleep and my appetite has improved a little.
My question is.....
When should I expect a lift in my mood?
When should normal thinking resume?
When do focus and concentration return?
The anxiety and the severity of it dragged me into depression and I feel very detached and find it very hard to focus and concentrate.
My doctor said that the improvements so far are great but it could take months for everything else to return to normal.
Id just like your thoughts on wether you feel that these things should be back to normal now and your own experiences with medication and how things went for you.
