A week ago, I came off mirtazapine. I was taking 15mg a night for around 18 months, before this I was one mirtazapine for years but came off it about two times. Before I came off the drug a week ago, I halved the dosage to 7.5mg for 3 nights.
I have had a lot of interesting (and annoying) side effects including:
- Shorter sleeps
- Sweating when waking and sweating easily with minimal effort
- Feeling emotionally depleted with low mood
- Feeling as though every molecule in my body in at my skin and vibrating (weird I know)
Now in the past 24-48 hours by low mood is increasing even more, increased itching, weird appetite/feeling in stomach and my friend said that I seem a bit manic in terms of my spending (which I think is probably related to the low mood and it is rewarding my brain!) I have also been feeling extra irritated and bothered I guess too.
I have been taking 2-4mg of valium daily to also help with the withdrawals and have been drinking 1-3 alcoholic drinks a day as well (this isn't too abnormal for me).
Just wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences or has any advice for me? And also, how many will it take for these symptoms to go away after being on 15mg of mirtazapine?
