Been taking 40mg Paroxetine for 22 years which worked really well. However due to the occasional blip it was decided to try switching to Mirtazapine. Stupidly decided to go cold turkey once i had tapered down to 20mg. After 3 weeks i wasn't coping well & informed the doctor about what i had done. Was subsequently put back on the Paroxetine 40mg. Now that i am back on the Paroxetine (7/8 weeks) i want to drop the Mirtazapine. I have been on 15/30mg Mirtazapine for approx 4 months. The doctor told me to drop from 30 to 15mg for 2 weeks & then come off. However after researching tapering i decided this was too quick. So i tapered from 30mg to 22.5mg the main problem that i have is insomnia, this started even when i had been on 30mg. At first i could sleep but all of a sudden i was struck with insomnia, something which i have never suffered from before. I have been on 22.5mg for a week now & apart from the insomnia i am feeling ok. Thinking of dropping the dose tonight to 15mg because i know no matter how slow i taper withdrawals are inevitable & i really don't want to lengthen the process. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
