I was taking Mirtazapine 15MG for over a year before my GP tried to switch me up a notch to 30MG but I preferred the 15MG as it relaxed me and helped me sleep. So she decided to stick with the 15MG. I decided after feeling much better that I would go for therapy instead and come off the Mirtazapine, however my GP wanted me to switch to sertraline in the meantime while I wait for an appointment. So I did, but after three days I did not have a good reaction to Sertraline or it was the Mirtazapine withdrawals kicking in. Either way, I ended up in ER convinced I was dying, but they found nothing wrong with my heart, blood pressure or anything.
I decided not to touch any medication ever again and for the next 8 days I didn't but it has been absolute HELL. I do not feel myself. I NEVER felt this way before I took Mirtazapine or even when I was on it. I felt this has made me worse. I'm convinced it is going to go on forever. I feel wired, like there is pressure in my brain, I have the shakes sometimes and vomiting.
I decided to talk to my GP and she said since Mirtazapine was working for you before let's start up that treatment again and I asked "will this feeling go away?" and she replied "yes". I took one last night and slept really well after I was up all night shaking and couldn't sit still. This morning I was sick but my GP said it's from my other tablets (for a urine infection) and it could be a combination of withdrawals, anxiety and those meds. I'm really getting inpatient and I feel like I'm not going to wake up or I will never feel myself again. This medicine has really fcked with my head and I no longer enjoy the things I used to do, I can't even concentrate, I find my mind wandering off to think of everything negative it can find and then I drown in my negative thoughts. I try to fight it and tell myself I'm okay, but I'm not. I'm not okay. I feel like hell.
My question is, since I stopped Mirtazapine before will it have the same effect as it did now that I'm on it again?
