I have been on 30mg of Mirtazapine for 7 months, it was prescribed to me for anxiety related to abdominal/digestive issues. I still have the abdominal symptoms and health anxiety. I believe there's something seriously wrong with me, that has been missed on the numerous tests that I have had.
I'm at a point now where I am questioning whether I still need to be on the Mirtazapine and if it is doing anything to help me.
One thing I know it is doing, is helping me sleep, but on the other hand I am constantly tired. I don't know to what extent it is helping my anxiety, as I still have anxiety but I don't know if it would be much worse without the Mirtazapine. I also get spells of dizziness, I had previously thought that this symptom was related to my abdominal/digestive issues, but I am now considering that it may be a side effect of the Mirtazapine. I am also wondering if any of my other symptoms, such as burning lips are related to the Mirtazapine or my abdominal/digestive issues.
My doctors have written my off as psychosomatic/all in the head with regard to my abdominal issues and are pretty useless when it comes to the Mirtazapine as well, they were quick to put me on it, but now I have questions about it, they can't seem to help, there answer is to just stop taking it, but I am very reluctant to do that from what I have read about withdrawal.
I'm wondering whether to I should think about coming off Mirtazapine and/or considering an alternative medication for my anxiety.
