So, I’ve been on Mirtazapine 45mg for over 2 years but am now coming off of it, I just can’t handle the weight gain. I’ve put on around 5stone in the 2 years. I’ve been advised by my doctor to reduce to 30mg for 2 weeks then to 15mg for 2 weeks. I’m only on my first day of the 30mg, just want to know what to expect when coming off of it. Any help from people who have been on the maximum dose is greatly recieved! 

Thanks

    That is way too fast.

    Look up surviving anti depressants for an idea of how to do it.

    You may be fine going that fast but if you are not then it can be truely awful.

    We have a mirt withdrawal support group. Look up Toris Stockford on fb and she can add you.

    Totally agree.  That's far too fast to withdraw from 45mg.  You need to taper by 10 percent a month.  Disregard what your GP says.  They don't know much about ADs. Anyone that offers you advice on here will have been through the hell of physical withdrawals
