I was on mirtazapine for a year and half, 30mg for my depression and anxiety aswell as sleeping problems. They were a big help and I felt like they suited me other than making me feel like I was in my own world most of the time. I recently found out I was pregnant and my doctor said nothing about coming off them or them not being safe until my second appointment with her, she took me off them completely and asked me not to take any more what so ever, I agreed but I have had the worst 3 weeks off my life since, she has replaced them with fluoxetine because I can't manage my depression on my own. But I'm shaky, hot then cold, sick every time I eat and have extreme nausea which is not due to the pregnancy because I had none of this before, I can't sleep longer than an hour or two most nights and my anxiety is really bad. Can someone please give me an estimate for how much longer I'm gonna have to feel like this? I know everyone's different but I'm so poorly and can't eat which is not good for my unborn baby. She told me because I'm pregnant I should be fine and that there was no withdrawal symptoms from medication like this, I've heard going cold turkey is quicker for getting it out your system but I just wanted some advice? Sorry for the long post.
