Hi there I've been suffering from severe anxiety and depression for close to a year now. I had two pretty serious episodes in my early 20s and was on citalopram for over ten years until I started to decrease the dose a few years ago. I've had a lot happen to me since this time including chronic pain, a wedding and subsequent separation plus an operation all in the space of 18 months. The Drs added mirtazapine to 40mg citalopram in January and although I'm better than I was I'm really struggling again with anxiety and severe depression esp in the mornings, I'm trying hard to rebuild my life but can't seem to shake this constant anxiety, and suffer from very bad panic attacks. I'm not feeling like I'm coping at all right now and feeling very desperate.
The last 24 hours have been the worst yet as stupidly increased my mirtazapine last night - I usually take 15mg and took one and a half last night and a bit this morning and feel absolutely horrendous. Feeling dizzy, and anxiety is worse than ever. I tried increasing the dose a few months ago to 30mg and it just didn't agree with me but I don't know what other option I have right now. please help x
