      I've been giving sertraline to try help me taper off these mirtazapine but I'm terrified to put Anything else in my mouth after this. I've heard sertraline seems good. Im just scared to have both in my system but I guess I can't feel any lower than I do on these

      I am on 30.. just got up to 30 after experiencing side effects.  I think I am going to stay on this until I see the dr.  I have to get out of this depression.  I have only been on the full 30 for one month.  I wish the dr. would have started me on something else in conjunction with the 15 mirtz.  I was okay on 15, but needed something for the depression.  Maybe I need to give it a chance ... although I am feeling rather hungry!

    I had success, my head was all over the place and I couldn't get to sleep. I was on it short term and in that space of time I was able to get my head straight and think clearly for the first time in a long while. However I was so desperate to get off it by the end because I was sick of never feeling happy, I just felt numb. I went cold turkey and the withdrawal, as I am sure you've heard, is hell. 

    I don't hate the drug, it really did help me through a rough patch. It was my fault for going cold turkey but my Doctor said it wouldn't be a problem. I feel much better now that the withdrawal has faded so I call that a success smile

    Hi Suzie

    Iam one of the success stories on mirtazapine. I have been on them for 5 years 30mg, and they have really helped with my anxiety and 

    appetite. I was only 7stone before I went on them, but I have put 2 stone on and feel much better for it. Great for getting a good sleep at night  2. Hope you start to feel better soon. Stick with it and I hope it helps you.

      Thanks.  I needed to hear a success story.  I don't need to put on weight mind you, but  I do desperately need help for anxiety and depression.

      I think the anxiety is finally coming down ... how is your energy?

      It has been a battle.  I will talk to the doctor .. I don't know if I can go through a medication change right now. I would like to be stable for a couple of months.  I haven't been for 6 months since every medication made me incredibly anxious.  This is my 4th med!
