Hi! I have been off and on Mirtazapine several times over the past 14 years. I have also taken Gabapentin (off 2 years), Zoplicone (off 2 years), and Seroquel (off 11 months). I have now been off the Mirtazapine for 4.5 months and the w/d symptoms have been horrific (chronic insomnia, burning, tingling, numbness, vibrations throughout body and head, adrenaline surges, depersonalization/derealisation, myoclonic jerks, burning brain, feeling like I'm either going 2 drop dead or go insane at any moment and the list goes on. I have had a few windows the past couple of weeks, but it very soon goes back to being extremely debilitating, painful, terrifying and horrendous). I am feeling extremely weak, exhausted and hopeless.
Has anyone else suffered so horrendously getting off this poison and if so what did you do to manage your symptoms so they were at least tolerable? As I am extremely paradoxical to almost all psych meds and a ton of other pharmaceuticals, going back on any drugs is out of the question. I don't want to have to live through another w/d like this for as long as I live which may not be much longer if I soon don't start getting some regular sleep. At best now I might get 2 hours per week. Please answer as I am desperately in need of some advice and support as I am getting weaker by the day. Thank you.
