This is my first post on the forums so I'm hoping you can help me.
I've been on 30mg mirtazipine for about 3-4 months and the weight gain is making me very depressed. I have an eating disorder - EDNOS but with a real problem with bingeing and purging. The mirtazipine has increased my appetite - it gives me the munchies at night which leads to horrible bingeing, and it's also made it impossible to lose weight. It's making me feel horrible. I'm going to ask my consultant to reduce the dose because I desperately want to be off it.
My question is - how bad is the withdrawal, and how much weight did you lose when you came off it (in kgs if possible)? I'm also on 225mg venlafaxine, 450 pregabilin and 200 lamotrigine, so I'm wondering whether the withdrawal symptoms will be easier because of all the other meds?
Thanks in advance!
