Mirtazapine withdrawal / reinstating

Posted , 2 users are following.

A little background I was on mirtazapine for a little over 12 weeks then was advised by my psych to quit due to side effects. 3 weeks off the drug no sleep horrendous abdominal pain and the list goes on. I reinstated 2 days ago but the insomnia and abdominal pain continues. I want my life back and feel like this drug has robbed me of that from the first day of taking it. I now have horrible tinnitus. Everyone tells you to take one day at a time and look to the future or this too will pass. Over the past 5 months I think I have spent most days hoping they were rock bottom only to learn what my new new rock bottom is. I don't know how to get off this horrible drug and be a father to my 3 amazing kids. It just doesn't effect us but also the people we love. This drug has also destroyed my relationship with my partner and I am sure my family are at breaking point.
