Hi, I need some help.
I was on Mirtazapine for about 6 months on 45mg. I felt like it wasn't helping as much as it used to so I asked to swap to something else. My doctor had me change to Cymbalta and he told me to just swap, no tapering. I stopped taking Mirtazapine and waited a few days before talking Cymbalta for a week and a half.
Cymbalta turned out to be terrible, I couldn't stay on it. But now I'm having withdrawals from them both. I have so much anxiety its ruining my life. I can't sleep, I can't sleep, I feel so nauseous that I cannot function. I am so anxious despite nothing bad happening. I am sat here doing nothing but my hands are shaking, my knees are shaking, it feels like my chest is being pushed down and my throat is tight and my stomach is tense and all I can think about is anxiety. It's been like this for a week and a half. I've lashed out at everyone in my life because this is killing me.
I don't know what to do. I can't function. I can't get a doctor appointment before the 7th. I just want to go back on the Mirtazapine so this anxiety stops but I don't know if I should or not.
I don't know what to do. Has anyone else gone cold turkey from 45mg Mirtazapine, and how do I deal with these withdrawals? Can I just take Mirtazapine again?
Sorry for the long, rambly post.
