Hi hoping there might be someone with experience to share. I am currently on 30mg of Mirtazapine, which was upped from 15 to 30 after a couple of weeks and for about 8 weeks now at 30mg. I am also taking 200mg per day of Pregabalin for 3 weeks now. As things were pretty bad when I started at 30mg I was taking 0.5 or 1 mg of Lorazepam per day for a few weeks. Not taken that for 2 weeks now. The depression is not lifting much yet, and anxiety seems a little bit more under control, must be if I am not reaching for the Lorazepam.
So now my GP has consulted with the psychiatric doctor, as the team are not directly seeing me for a few more weeks yet. The advice now is to up the Mirt to 45mg and if we don't see an improvement in a few weeks to switch to Lofepramine. The doctor also said he was comfortable if I wanted to change to Lofepramine now. Or I can keep going as I am for a bit longer.
So decisions, decisions?
Can anyone off advice on:
30-45 mg Mirt, does it help , has it helped anyone where the lower dose has not helped?
If switching now the GP said it would be a straight switch, stop Mirt and start Lofepramine, sounds a bit abrupt to me?
