Hello guys...I'm new to this forum and after some advice/reassurance.
I was on Mirtazapine for about 9 mths....initially 15mg then went up to 45mg. Mainly to help with sleep and low mood.
I decided that I wanted to come off the meds as I didn't want to be on them anymore.
Anyway I saw a Dr (not my usual Dr) who just gave me 30mg for 2 mths. Then I took 15mg for 2 mths and then went cold turkey. I was ok for about a week then the withdrawal symptoms hit me like a tonne of bricks. Feeling sick, no appetite. The insomnia is absolutely horrendous!!!!!!! I haven't slept properly for weeks. Ended up getting some sleeping tablets from my Dr. I only take these if I really need to. I've also got a constant headache... Is this normal?
So cross as I feel I didn't get the correct advice about tapering off Mirtazapine.
