Mirtazapine and Citalopram

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi, I've been on Citalopram for anxiety since 2005, 30mgs initially but went up to 40mgs in 2016. I then had terrible anxiety last year and my GP added 15mgs Mirtazapine. It worked really well for 2 weeks then the anxiety came back and it wasn't until nearly 3 months after first taking that it finally went. However, about a month ago it returned and my GP put me on 30mgs and reduced my Citalopram to 35mgs initially with the aim of cutting down to 30mgs after a few weeks. Now the new dosages of my meds have made me feel awful, I still feel anxious and additionally feel depressed, I can't think straight and can't get out of bed in the morning. I feel really weird, it doesn't feel normal. I hate this feeling. I usually feel better as the day goes on but I dread waking with the awful feeling every morning. I have a GP's appointment tomorrow. Wondering if anyone can advise?

    I'd rather be on diazepam than mitrazepine although I'm off all of them now I take 300 trazadone 100 chlorpromazine and feel OK but when I have psychiatrist next month it'll all change and be mucked up
