I had a stroke before Christmas.It was a real shock.Fortunately it happened while I was in hospital so I had scan very quickly.
I had been admitted due to severe pain in my leg although it was not dvt.
I was then found to have aterial fibrilation!
I had tapered mirtazapine a few months before this happened and was feeling ok.
Any way following my discharge I had dreadful insomnia and anxiety and knowing the struggle I had to wd in January my GP put me back on 15mg mirtazapine.
To be fair I was so shattered due to lack of sleep and the anxiety was dreadful so I agreed to give it another go.
Also I had lost so much weight and it was hoped that my appetite may improve.
I am still losing weight as my stomach is upset most of the time and I have gone from constipation to 'never off the toilet' sorry, too much informtion!
I feel so weak and just want to sleep.
Tingling in arms and legs and all the horrible things we all suffer due to mirtazapine.At first I was putting it down to the anti coagulant drug I have to take but as I have started reading the threads again I know it is the mirt and I need to wd.
When I did WD previously I went from 15mg to 7.5 then stayed there for a few weeks then just stopped.I felt dreadful for a few weeks then gradually as mirt left my body I improved.
So back again, my GP is not helpful so I need to do are slow er WD this time.
Good to read the threads again and best wishes to you all who are struggling at this time.
