I have been on mirtazapine for a year now. Upped to 30 mg within a couple months of treatment. I started to wear glasses when i started. Now my right eye i cant see really anything anymore. Is this normal? My vision has gotten worse and im not sure if its stress or what not. Im a nursing student too. I have a panic disorder with GAD. I just started 10 mg of fluoxetine in combo with 30 mg of mirtazapine. But i want to get off mirtazapine asap.

    Go back to your optician asap. Usually, if mirtazapine affects eyesight, it is in both eyes. I got some blurring of my vision and couldn't see as clearly in the distance. My eyes have now returned to normal after withdrawing from mizapine.

      I did a very slow taper over the space of 4 months. By the time I was off it I think my eyes were back to normal. I hope yours are soon.
