I have been taking Mirtazapine for the last 6 months after having had a bad (but short) experience with Citalopram. For the first 4 and a half months or so was on 15mg and this seemed to be helping initially with the anxiety, although didn't seem to help that much with my get up and go/motivation. Then it seemed to stop working and at doctors suggestion put it up to 30mg for about 2-3 weeks which didn't seem to help and then up again to 45mg where I've been for the last 2 and a half weeks or so. It doesn't seem to be working for me, everytime I raise the dose I get a brief 3-4 day period where things get better and then it seems to fall back down again.
It certainly helps me get to sleep but I'm not convinced it's helping my anxiety just maybe slightly sedating it. I've also started feeling very down the last few days although wonder if that could just be from the furstration of not feeling better. I'm tempted to wean myself of them. I know they take a while to work but have been on 30mg or higher for 4-5 weeks now and can't say I feel any better. I could cope with the tablets making me feel tired if I didn't have the anxiety as well.
Would be interested in hearing if anyone had a similar experience with Mirtazapine and if they did what did they do and what was the result?
Thanks in advance for any replies
