Mirtazapine. I lost 10 months of my life when I stopped taking this drug.
Antidepressants such as mirtazapine need to be taken off the market.
Whilst I agree that there is a need for drugs that can help people with very difficult periods they experience in their lives, nobody wants to have to take these drugs forever. The vicious withdrawals that many people suffer when attempting to stop can only mean that they are addictive. They are addictive because the withdrawals are unbearable and prolonged. Most GPs dispute this with Mirtazapine
Definition of addiction: physically and mentally dependent on a particular substance and unable to stop taking it without incurring adverse effects
Report this drug.
The Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) have a system to monitor the effects and safety of medicines and their side effects.
I have submitted a yellow card report detailing the very nasty withdrawal side effects mirtazapine left me with.
