Hi. I have recently been diagnosed with depression and it's been a bit of a nightmare with my meds as I can't find one that suits me. I have been on fluoxetine 40mg for several years for my PMT but this wasn't helping my depression. My doctor starting me on mirtazapine and it really did make a massive difference, I felt like I had me back even after just a few weeks of taking it. The only problem was I was piling on weight, which due to other health problems is not an option for me. I put on nearly 2 stone in 6 weeks so I came off it. My doctor wasn't happy I'd taken myself off it but after some persuasion she has now put me on sertraline 50mg. After a month of taking it every day I am still terrible. I'm not sleeping..I am more anxious then I've ever been, I'm not going to have any skin left on my lips and around my nails, I have a rigid fac and jae making me constantly tense and I can't relax at all. I am having mild suicidal thoughts too which I didn't even have before I started taking AD meds. I don't know what to do, I am getting worse daily and I am a single parent of 3 young kids and I have 2 businesses that are all being effected. As my Doctor isn't interested and I can't get into see her over the next 3 weeks I am considering starting toi take the Mirtazapine again, temporarily, until I can see her. Any advice would be much appreciated.
