On one and taken off and put on another note weaning off betwee?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Long story cut short.

I was on floxutine40mg 13yrs and stopped working.

Then onto Mirtazapine 30mg up your 45mg and they didn't seem to work.

Then on Sertraline 50mg for 5days but didn't agree with me. So I called the doctor and she was puzzle but she did say. The doctor who took me off the other medication did you reduce your dose . I said no. So now I'm back on to Mirtazapine45mg and being weaned off weekly 30mg down to 15mg then have appointment to see doctor in two wks. I'm hoping that she going to start me on something that's going to suit me. I fed up being messed about. I'm really depressed and off work atm. I can't seem to have the smile or get involved with things it seems 100 time harder to bring my self to it. Things go around in my head over and over again and don't stop.

Has anyone else changed med and feeling bad.

    Hi you need to give meds up to 6 weeks to start helping you.  I don't think,  unless the side effects are severe,  that you should come off them so quickly  before giving them a chance to work.  It is very common to feel worse for a while until they properly kick in. 

    I find sertraline works fine for me but at the 150 mg dose.  The 100 mg one does nothing for me.  Good luck.  x

    Hi clem clem,  I have depression and PTSD and don't take anything in fact I point blank refuse.  I don't rate any chemical medication as I know what it did years ago and what it still does.  I speak to people regularly,  I walk,  I admit if I feel rotten and I talk to my doctor often.  I do use a great deal of herbal medication. I prefer it.  I hope you get find the right medication for you as the same things don't suit everyone. X
