I've been on Mirtazipine for just over a year, from 15mg , 30mg to 45mg (for about 10 months).
Great tablet for sleeping. Although nearer the end this could be hit and miss.
I have also put on 3 stone whilst on them. To try to shift this i have Increased excersise, used My fitness pal, I cannot shift the weight under 16st, I'm 5'1 so I feel horrendous.... Which in turn this has made my anxiety , self confidence and depression worse. I feel embarrassed about what I've become .
About a month ago my anxiety became unbearable, hard to face customers at work, going out. Everyday things became tough, nothing seemed to make me feel better. I wasn't smiling, just felt utterly hopeless.
Last Sunday something inside me snapped. I decided not to take them anymore. See if I can loose the weight and live without antidepressants. Been on and off them since 2008. In all that time, I hadn't found 'the one' to conquer all my troubles. I honestly feel like they have been making me feel worse depression and anxiety wise.
Since stopping them. I slept well Sunday, Monday and Thursday. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday night, i got about 3 hours sleep but waking up I was covered in sweat, after waking I just can't get too sleep.
Mentally I've felt fine. I have suffered from nausea, restlessness, fever, chills and aches.
I'm just wondering how long I can expect sleepless nights and night sweats?
I've been taking lots of vitamins and omega three to help me through.
I know when all this is over it will all be fine. I'm feeling confident in dealing with my bodies own natural rhythm.
