Hi, so I've been on 30mg mirtazapine for about 3 weeks now, 15g for about 3 weeks before that. Previously I was on fluoxitine for about 2 months but my mood got really bad. Sertraline for a few months before that, had to switch as I wasn't sleeping and my muscle clenching was intolerable. My mood is terrible. I feel worse every day, I think about suicide constantly and I've tried to hurt myself. My question is, has anyone been on mirtazapine for this long with no improvement? Obviously as I've switched meds a few times already I want to give this the best possible chance before starting again. I don't think I can face more withdrawals and more dodgy first week bad come-ups. Another thing is I still seem to be withdrawing from the SSRIs? I've had the "brain zaps" for about 2 months, they aren't lessening at all and make me pretty much constantly dizzy. I don't want to bring this up to my GP unless it's really unusual and I don't know if I should be worried. Any opinions/experiences welcome, I'm seriously struggling. I also see a counsellor once a week, about 2 months into my second round of sessions in the last 2 years.
