    Hi,

    I was on Mirtazapine for 9 months, only a low dose but got me through a difficult time, I decided I was ready to come off and reduced it bit by bit for about 3 weeks, I had a few withdrawals but ok now, however like you I gained a lot of weight while I was on it so all Im doing is to eat healthily and to walk a lot more and hope I,ll shift it.
