I have been in so much mental and physical anguish these past two weeks I can't begin to imagine how I've made it so far. Today was the first time that I have experienced the 3D feeling, which I believe to be deralization .

I'm also on less than 2mg of remeron which I also believe is causing the disaster I've been experiencing these past 2 weeks.my doctor asked me to start getting off it by skipping doses, the first one I skipped began the outa control spiral. I can't sleep or feel relief from anxiety headaches,nausea body jerks when I'm about to doze off as well as racing thoughts loud & busy.

I think I'm dealing with both WD with the remeron being much more dominate and benzo to a lighter degree. I should have never added another drug to the list now I'm in limbo not knowing when or even if I will stablize on the remeron.So Either I stay on it continuing tring to stabalize then taper or just or get off it. I've only been on mirtz since jan 6 @ 3.75 for one month and 2 mg for 2 months.

What to do,

    So sorry you are going through this. Try and stay calm if you can

    Do not skip doses - this confuses the nervous system.

    If I was you I would stay on that dose until your stabilise your system.

    may take a while but you should.

    You may be able to get liquid form mirtazapine. This would be easier to taper off.

    Sounds like remeron is causing busy thoughts - I get them.

    Hope you start to feel better soon.

    Surviving Antidepressants is a good forum for you.

    You will get lots of support there. 

    You haven't been on it that long, so shouldn't be much of a problem once you have stabilized.

      Thks Sara: I'm am on the same dose of 1.87 mg 1/8 of 15mg pill. I weigh the 1/8 th on a jewelers scale to get the closet possible. I have tried liquid but it revves me up and causes a burning sensation top part of feet. I'm on such a little dose but this unfortunatly has quite a grip in my already compromised system. How long can it take to stablize? I've been at it for ten days now. I had a terrible time on Tuesday no sleep anxiety sky high wed.then that evening it subsided and had a pretty decent day Thursday the Friday the anxiety starts again. When I started at a higher dose of 3.75 I had to stop taking it ct for 2 weeks cause every time I'd dose it would revv me up. This was with the liquid suspension. I went back on it after couple of weeks cause of the WD effects of either the benzos or the mirtz or both. I know ct is horrible but if I can't stablize in the next 5/6 days what would u do? Thxs

      I think you're in a pickle here what with benzo's too.

      Seriously - get on Surviving Antidepressant's forum.

      They have a lot of experience and will be able to see what's going on and advise you what to do. Epson salt baths are good for calming you down.

      Thks Sara : pls ck out my post @ surviving ad. 

      "Trying to stablize on Mirtzaipine" "Miami1"

      they emphasize to get stable on my current dose then do a slow taper. I would do that in a perfect world and am trying to do it but its taking a while and I get this "can't stop thinking about it brought on by anxiety" where I feel I'm going bananas. I've been off lunesta which was the drug that messed me up then was put on xanax .25nightly replace the lunesta for 3 months. Then in nov2013 was switched to valium for a fast taper and I've been off benzos since dec16,2013.
