I was prescribed to mirtazapine and i am facing side effects. I want to know did any one facing same problem, is mirtazapine is useful?

From past 25 days i am using mirtazapine, First 15 days dose 20mg then my doctor is increased to 20mg

One thing i observed is my side effect got reducing day by day but it is very hard to overcome the side effects.

The side effects are very severe and hard to do day to day tasks.

The side effect are causing anxiety and depression but the side effects are reducing my confusion is " is it ok to continue the Mirtazapine"

Side effects:

* In the day head tightness and shocks

* feeling loosing control and weak hands and legs


I can say the above symtoms are reducing day by day.

Please guide me can i continue the medicine for better results?

    If they are reducing day by day then I would say that they will probably completely go in a week or two. Personally, I would persevere unless you get any more or worstening side effects.

      Yes, I felt totally spaced out and non functioning for a few weeks, but the depression went quite quickly. Now I feel totally normal. I have been on it for 3 years and it has helped me loads.

    Just to say mirtazapine has worked well for me. 30mg for last 6 years, no problems. But everyone is different.
