I am stopping mirtazapine after doing hours of research on it (withdrawals, different dosages, side effects etc.)
WIthin a year I went from 6st 9lbs to 11st 9lbs. I'm angry and disgusted. My depression hasn't been improved by this med, just my sleep.
I am now wondering if anyone has found a way to combat the insomnia that comes with mirtazapine withdrawal ?
I am aware you cannot get something that strong over the counter, but anything that helps even a little I will be grateful to hear from you ?
I have tried to lose wieght on this drug, tried a different dosage with no luck. This weight gain has pushed me into a deeper depression than I've been in for years.
SO long as I can sleep, I can quit easily.
So any luck with sleep aids for mirtazapine quitting induced insomnia ???
Failing that I will ask my doctor for a strong sleep aid (not sure they'd give me one though..)
Please, any tips/recommendations ?
