Mirtazipine just came off it

Posted , 4 users are following.

I jist came off mirtazipine after being on it for 3 months i had put on 8 to 9kg in 4 weeks eating healthy excersised and this was at the start i was eating healthy would do walks round the block as ive always been healthy and fit weighting between 60 and 62 and when i started the mirtazipine i put on 8 and a half kg in 4 weeks but after the first 3 weeks of excersose walking treadmill and cardio and healthy eating i started to feel heavier in the mornings and knew it was the mirtazipine slowing down my matabolism and even though i slept well my mood was good my clothes became tighter and i wasnt feeling good about the extra weight and not just the fact i put on weight but the fact that after that 3 weeks i felt heavier in the mornings and became less motivated i continued to eat healthy but i was slowing down on my excersose as i felt like a ton of bricks had weighed me down and i just didnt feel good in myself so i went to my psychiatrist and told him how my moods were great i was sleeping well but in the mornings feeling heavy and my motivation became less so he has taken me off it and i start a new antidepressant tomorrow being saturday 3rd Feb 2018 so i will be keeping up to date i havnt taken mirtazipine for 2 nights now this is the second night so ill keep posted but yes no matter how healthy i ate your mitabolism slows down but it depedms on the individual this medication being mirtazipine would be good for those who need the more weight ok well ill keep you updated.

    It will be interesting to see if you get any withdrawal with only being on for 3 months. I stopped 8 days ago and not sleeping and very anxious.
