I was prescribed Mirtazpain in May 2014, Started on 15mg, to date I'm on 45mg. The problem I'm facing is that I've always been thin, 8-9 Stone. But now I'm weighting 11-12 Stone (88KG) and now I'm classed as overweight.
The Reason I was prescribed this medication is becuase I lost my mum unexpected to cancer and I was diagnosed with Depreesion and suffering from Complicated Grief.
Is the Mirtazapine Causing sudden Weight Gain? The last two weeks I changed my diet to purly Fruit and Vegatables and I drink ONLY water. Now and again I have a coffee after waking but I keep this to 1-2 cups. I even bought a Treadmill to increase my excercise to try lossing some weight.
Even with these measures, I'm not lossing weight, but rather keep putting it on, even though i aim to burn more calories then I consume.
This is making me very depressed with the way I look and I am strongly considering stopping taking this medication, But the right way is to go back to my GP to get an alternative medication without the side effect of weight gain.
As anyone else having or had the same problem? Any advice will be welcomed.
