Ive had enough of side effects, tablets and anxiety - and its only effected me since this February!
I initially went on Mirtazapine 15mg then up to 30mg for anxiety / depression. It helped with the sleeping and depression but my already fuzzy head seemd a lot worse on these tablets.
I asked if I could try another AD, so he put me on Citalopram. What an horrendous reaction (panic, terror, sweats - didn't sleep for 3 days!), he said I had a reaction and so I went back on the Mirtazapine thinking they were my only option.
The anxiety seemed to continue from the Citalopram reaction , symptoms I didn't have before. I have been taking them since.
Iam back at work, but the dizziness is horrible, I keep wanting to fall forward or get slight vertigo is I move my head. Since cutting down to 7mg as Doctor said to come off, that has got better but the waves of anxiety are not nice! (Could be coming off too quick).
The Doctor has prescribed me[b:0b1a13d29b] Dosulepin[/b:0b1a13d29b]. I have read people raving about them and others who don't, I am scared stiff of taking these!
Do all anti depressants fog up your brain, are some worse, can you think clearly on any of them? And do they all have side effects?
I feel I can't go back to the Doctor as he will see me as anxious and paranoid and tell me to see how I get on!
Any advice appreciated - Thank You
