Today I have been given 15mg Mirtazapine for the first time. From reading reviews I'm very concerned about taking them mainly due to the weight gain many people experienced.
I'm a 31 year old female and other than the pass 2 years I have always been overweight (18 stone). I'm now 11 stone which I'm comfortable with.
I have been given Mirtazapine as following operations and maybe more to come I have been suffering with very low self esteem mentally & physically.
I know the medication has been given to help but I'm worried if I am to gain weight I will feel even lower about myself. I have told this to my GP who has advised he will weigh me in 2 months to see if weight has been gained.
By reading your reviews the weight gain seems to happen very rapidly.
Your opinions and thoughts are greatly appreciated
