Hi everyone best to come back here and give updates so here is mine and any comments and advice will be gratefully received. 12 weeks of Mirt which went up to 45mg for a few weeks and really did not help with depression, and left a terrible morning every day. Reduced to 30mg for a week, 22.5 mg for a week, 15mg for a week, and now 7.5 mg for 10 days. Started Lofepramine 7 days ago 70mg. I struggled a week ago, now for the last 4 days mornings are still a challenge but I am getting up instead of laying in bed in a half awake state. One thing the CMHT person helped with last week was making sure I put the effort in to break the cycle of mornings and getting up as a set time with an alarm, with tasks to perform like making sandwiches for the children etc. In myself I feel things are improving as far as you can say that, its always in a wobbly way but I hope I am getting there.
Seen the GP today and with respect to the cross taper of Mirt to Lofep the guidance I am getting is to now go alternate nights on the 7.5 mg of Mirt and stop in a weeks time and increase Lofep at that time. I would prefer to reduce the Mirt further but they don't issue liquid form and I am already splitting a 15mg pill in half.
