      I didn't have any side effects either.  I was 45 mg but I felt awful so my doctor withdrew me over a week just by cutting the dose down.

      I took 15 mg for nearly 3 months and it worked the next day.  I thought it was a wonder drug.  I felt fantastic.  The only dowwnside was that I was always hungry.  Then it  stopped working so I was 8 weeks on 30 mg and 3 weeks on 45.

    Hello Lupin I can tell you that I definitely had a tight chest whilst on mirtazapine and while coming off, but after winning the battle and being off meds I can tell you it does go away in time just stick through it and think positive.  Hopefully the cough is nothing serious but see your doctor if it doesn't improve!

      Julie I am not saying they didn't and I am glad you are off the mirtz, I am just talking from a bit of a bad experience with medication, from one, to another, to another because of side effects I appologize if I have insulted you in any way I am just trying to get people to know the bad side effects of things before they take them - I was clueless and learnt the hard way - Again my apologies

    Hello 

    I have a cough that developed when tapering. Also tight chest. Had to go back on Mirt to see if it would help. 

    How is your cough now? Did it go? I could do with some reassurance regarding this.

    Many thanks for your help
