I’ve been off mirtazapine for one week and I feel like my head is spinning.. it’s a lightheaded feeling and I have fatigue and blurry vision ..has anyone experienced this while coming off of mirtazapine? i originally stopped because it was lowering my blood pressure and making me extremely dizzy to the point where I wanted to pass out. ...

current symptoms after stopping one week ago..

-lightheaded feeling

-I have eye fatigue and blurry vision

-sensitivity to bright light

-dizzyness

    hi there, i sympathise with you!! ive had the blurry vision the nausea is awful and my sleep pattern is all over the place again!! i must admit i went cold turkey, been off them nearly 3weeks now, i thought they were good antidepressants and did help me sleep, the weight i gained was awful though. my gp changed me to trazadone, but they give me awful drug hangovers,no energy, feel doped etc, so currently in between meds, waiting to see her again this week

    i hope your symptoms get better soon
