I'm 20 years old and was prescribed 15 mg mirtazipine for the first week, and then went up to 30 mg for a little over a month. I felt great at first, but after a while I began to develop edema in my feet and ankles. My psychiatrist refused to believe this was caused by the drug but after a while I stopped takingit on my own. I tried to taper off, but felt horrible so I quit altogether. Now my feet and ankles are fine, but my calves and thighs are now swollen, and have been this way for over a month. I went to get checked out by a doctor and so far they haven't been able to figure out what is causing this. They also don't believe it's caused by the mirt, but personally I don't know what else it could possibly be. I just want my legs back to normal. Could this be caused by stopping it so suddenly? Is the drug somehow stuck in my system? I'm at my wits end here. I'm worried that I'm going to be stuck like this forever all because of this stupid "medicine."
