Hi - I'm new to the forum so bear with me.
I started on 15mg of Mirtazapine 3 weeks ago and I hate the stuff. I have recently been on sertraline citalopram and prozac. All 3 gave me horrible sides, ranging from balance issues and the shakes in my hands, so I stopped... but this medication is on another level.
I have recently split with my partner of 11 years and have lost everything. I still miss her and my pets, the house etc and have been finding things extremely difficult. I am back at my parents for the first time in 22 years and that is when my anxiety really kicked in and I developed the shakes in my hands whilst on prozac. I still get the shakes 3 months after the prozac and have seen the doc several times over this as I'm worried it is something more serious. My doc has told me i am suffering from extreme anxiety and have developed physical symptoms that I cant shift.
I have since developed a serious health anxiety, which has been increased tenfold by this horrible medication. My anxiety has been through the roof!!!
Since I have been on this medication my balance issues returned and I have felt unbelievably weak in my hands and my dexterity is poor. I am someone who goes the gym regularly (until recent lockdown) and I am fit and healthy. I also am getting the jitters and muscle twitches all-over. I cant believe someone with a health anxiety would be given something so strong.
I nearly went to the hospital today due to how weak my hands have become. My doctor deterred me and told me it is my health anxiety kicking in. I am struggling to type this message properly. I also had to contact 111 online last night as I was feeling as low about my physical symptoms than I have before.
I have been told to stop by my doc to stop this medication, which I reduced to 7.5mg last week, and he has prescribed me duloxetine. This will be my 5 try at an antidepressant.
Has anyone else had these issues, especially weakness in hands and general lethargy/Coordination problems????
I feel like I'm going mad and have gone back months since taking this stuff!!
