Hi i have been on mirtazapine since around december. I started at 15mg and also was taking 20mg daily of fluoxetine. After 2 weeks i went up to 30mg mirt and 10mg daily of oral fluoxetine. After another 2 weeks the mirt was upped to 45mg and i finally stopped fluoxetine at 2.5mg 3 weeks ago.
I manage to fall asleep fine but still wake up few times through the night. I wake up at 7am everyday as im a single mum with a 7 year old daughter. As soon as i wake up i feel this horrible feeling of dread, and like my skins trying to crawl away. I also keep getting a bizzare vertigo like feeling and all of my joints ache to the point where i feel like i cant walk up my stairs. Im only 26 and im not overweight. Ive always been physically healthy. The only positive thing ive had is weight gain. I was underweight up until recently. Since starting the mirtazipine i have put on 2 and a half stone. I think my go and mental health team are getting fed up with me but im limited as to what medication i can take because im on my own with my child. I tried quetiapine once and refused to take it again because i couldnt function atall the next day. I just really need some advice as im running out of options. Im on the medication for emotionally unstable personality disorder and general anxiety disorder which i habe struggled with for 6 years. Any advice or suggestions will be greatfuly recieved. Thank you x
