Mirtazapine withdrawal

Posted , 4 users are following.

it was the worst thing i had to go through i gained sixty pounds, nightmares, insomnia, tremors, horrible headaches, some days i felt like my brain was on fire, felt like i had bugs under my skin, so i tried weaning off, but i was tired of the side affects so i went cold turkey! oh my god that was the biggest mistake i ever made! it was worse than being on the medication! it made withdrawal a hundred times worse! two words never again!

    Hi Donna

    YOU POOR THING I REALLY SYMPATHISE . I HOPE YOU ARE WELL NOW

    HOW LONG WERE YOU ON THE MIRTAZIPINE AND AT WHAT POINT DID ALL THOSE AWFUL SYMPTOMS START

    I PRESUME YOUR WITHDRAWAL IS OVER NOW , HOW LONG DID IT LAST

    BEFORE YOU FELT WELL AGAIN

    I AM SUFFERING TERRIBLE INSOMNIA I FEEL IT WILL NEVER END

    HOW LONG DID IT TAKE BEFORE YOU WERE SLEEPING NORMALLY

    WHEN YOU HAD INSOMNIA DID YOU TAKE OTHER MEDICATION TO GET SOME SLEEP

    BEST WISHES

      its great it is all in the past for you. I hope you are happy

      IT is 9 weeks since I took my last pill and I cannot sleep naturally at all. I have to take zopiclone or benalyn to get a couple of hours sleep. I have terrible anxiety all day

      So a month doesnt sound too bad but maybe you had other symptoms as well. Did your sleep return to normal after a month
