    You have given it over 4 weeks on the new dose so tell the doctor. Its not uncommon to add a low dose ssri to take with mirt. Or they may just up you to 45mg on mirt.

    I take venlafaxine with mirtazapine and that works for me. You do need to tell doctor how you feel, and see what he/she suggests.

    Also with recovery/treatment for anxiety and depression, there will always be ups and downs, so the wobble might be just temporary, but only time will tell, and I'm sure the doc will understand if the anxiety is troubling you.

    Hi, the other thing to bear in mind is that hormonal fluctuations can make anxiety worse.  Might be worth just tracking it to see if it happens around the same time each month.  If you know that it's related to normal hormonal fluctuations you might be able to cope with it a little better.  Take care, Gen
