Hi I started mirtazapine 15mg 7 days ago and didn't really experience many side effects. I felt a minor mood lift after the first tablet then today around lunch time I felt a strong lift in mood with negative thoughts almost totally disappearing. This continued to increase until 8pm when I suddenly felt a panic attack ( fast heart rate, feeling of anxiety, fear of this feeling increasing) coming on I took 2.5mg valium straight away and seemed to calm down within 5 minutes. My pulse remained at about 115 for 30 mins after. Is this normal? serious? I feel relaxed again now but the feeling all afternoon was like a really strong sense of wellbeing coming over me.
Should I reduce the dose to 7.5 or continue on at 15? or stop all together?
thanks in advance for the replies
