Okay so I have been on mirtazapine 45 mg for about 2 years now. Don't get me wrong this done the job for me I was sleeping every night and panic attacks and anxiety had impoved so much. But I have been going to the gym 5 times a week and eating so healthy but still gaining weight I used to be a size 10 I am now a 16!!! This has been making me so depressed and unsociable so I have decided to quit it....cold turkey,, this was my decision I want to be drug free and not a walking zombie anymore.
First couple of days have been great, going gym as normal, happy, lost 6lbs, sleeping is harder obviously I was expecting that, everything brighter, more energy.
Day four- fist sign of withdrawal symptoms was okay through the day felt very tired so went to bed about 10pm......looked at my clock 2.30am and u am still awake tossing and turning, then I began with these awful head pains never felt anything like it before, was like a wave of pain starting from the back of my head going to the front that happened all night. I then began hallucinating, I started seeing someone in my room, then I could see the dog on all fours staring at me. Muscle pains. Coughing and full of cold.
Woke up at 9am so must have got some sleep, feeling much better now, so I think the withdrawal has begin just hope I am strong enough to get through it and that it's not for too long.
I will keep you all updated. ...... 😊 anyone else got similar stories? How long will this last before I am myself again? Any suggestions on how to get through it?
