[size=18:bc23d4e2e7][color=darkred:bc23d4e2e7]Hi there. If, like me, you are taking Mirtazapine (30mgs) you too will be hoping to find someone else who is experiencing some very odd side affects!
A little about me: I've been taking one a day (at night because they are - for me - a sedative) for nearly 7 months now since a rather large 'crash and burn' session in the control room at work. :cry:
To start with the tablets knocked me sideways. I felt as though I was talking and being talked to through a series of double glazed windows. Very odd, disjointed and well .... spaced out quite frankly. After about 8-10 weeks this calmed down and I was beginning to get my reality back a bit. I was told by my GP that these tablets do, infact, forcably slow you down. They certainly did that! It was all that I could do to get dressed in the morning, preferring just to sit infront of dribble on the TV. Sadly, with a 6-year old and a husband who does shift work, I CANT afford to slow down to this extent. I would say that, in my experience so far, the first 4-5 months were a bit of a blur.
I am now pulling out of the lethergy, only to have THE most amazing electric noise in my head every 20 minutes or so. Its so very hard to explain, but the best way I guess is; those plasma balls you see that when you touch them, the electric gravitates towards your hands - well, its THAT noise but in the part of your head which you cant explain! God, I really do sound quite mad don't I! It only lasts for about 2 seconds, but its enough to make me wince as though expecting a big firework to go off!
All the way along my appetite has increased - now upto 13 stone - but to hell with that, Ill deal with that when the inside of my head is better. :wink:
Sex life?! - I'd rather have a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea please! My fantastic, ever suffering husband is totally mental health illness free thank goodness and is, generally, understanding. I can't climax and my interest in anything sexual is less than zilch.
My husband tells me that I am generally very calm now - I have no highs and no lows (and I miss both of those) but I have also lost my spirit, my drive, my fight which makes me who I am.
Happy days are ahead or atleast that's what I'm told.
Happy to hear from anyone who is taking these tablets .... especially from those who have similar experiences. Its a big world out there and I feel quite alone in my mine. xx[/color:bc23d4e2e7][/size:bc23d4e2e7]
