Hey, I've been on mirt for a good 6months before I began to taper. I started on 30mg, went up to 45mg where I Stayed for the last 3/4months. I decides to come off because I felt the mirt was being counterproductive, I felt quite low and still anxious at times so decided that the worst that could happen would be I'd feel no different if I came off.
I feel like getting a new job and finally a diagonsis for my son with austism to be the really helpful boosts in my mental health. I tapered from 45mg to 30mg for 2 weeks, then 15mg for a week, then 7.5mg for another week and have now stopped. I'm day 4 of no mirtazapine and will admit sleeping has been Harder but not impossible, I have really weird cold symptoms and sneezing all the time, lost my appetite and have some anxiety. The cold and sneezing could possibly be hayfever as mirt has antihistamine effects so could have been masking this.I feel more capable of handling this anxiety and confident its just a mixture of withdrawal and natural anxiety about coming off the medication. I'm interested to hear about others that have withdrawn and had some initial anxiety but came through it again. I felt so good tapering down , like much better than I'd been in months. Its just now 4days off that I feel a bit wobbly.
