I had the sinus surgery and I was suffering from head pressure for 4 years. It started affecting my sleep and my doctor prescribed me antidepressants. I started feeling well. I tapered the medicines and could not sleep for a month. As a result, I went back on antidepressants escitalopram (10 mg), klonopin (0.5mg) and mirtazapine (7.5 mg) in may 2015. Last year I tapered off escitalopram and klonopin completely. This year I reduced the mirtazapine dosage from 7.5 to 3.75 mg and life has been hell since then. My doctor advised me to take 11.25 mg for a while but it isn't helping either. My head pressure has returned. I can't sleep for more than 4 hours. Can't concentrate on my work. It has already been 2 months I didn't sleep properly. Decreased amount of sleep is causing anxiety and I m unable to enjoy my life.
I want to start taking another drugs along with mirtazapine and taper them out. Then I want to continue on 7.5mg mirtazapine for rest of my life. I m just 26. What do you guys think?
