I've been having a rough time the last couple months, felt myself slipping so spoke to my doc who prescribed Mirtazapine to take alongside my Fluoxetine.

Since starting the Mirtazapine I have noticed my appetite has increased severely & I really cannot afford to put any weight on when I'm meant to be losing it.

Anyone else have similar symptoms & how long do they last?

Thanks x

    Hi yasmine i also had that side effect but was on it b4 i was ever prescribed fluoxetine. I didn't get to stay on it after 3 mths as it didnt lift my mood and caused migraines to worsen in my case. Hope it settles itself out ...the + weight side effect for me all i can say was still putting on at 3 mths before stopping mirtazapine xx

    We all seem to put weight on, it is part of the territory.

    I do not know what to suggest, you coudl see how it goes and if not happy talk with your GP
