    If you are like me you will loose some easily the last bit is a work in progress. The velafaxine has some nasty side effects to begin with but stick with it, its worth it.

    Hi Clare

    Just wondering if you are withdrawing slowly from Mirt?  There are some pretty nasty side effects if not, for most people who have come off cold turky it has proved to be a nightmare Clare.  

    It's possible to read previous  "withdrawing from Mirtazapine" posts on this forum - better to be aware.

    Wishing you well & kind regards
