Possible bad reaction to Mirtazapine

Posted , 6 users are following.

So, guys, I may be taken off Mirtazapine as soon as tonight. I shall keep you all informed. I phoned the weekend on-call doctor, about pains that I have been having in my hands, my formarms and my shoulder. The doctor asked, after going over details about my hands and arms, if I was taking any medicine, to which I replied Mirtazapine. She then asked if I had any strange races on my skin, and I told her that I get hives/nettle rash all the time, all over my arms, my body, everywhere, and that I get this at least twice daily. So, I am now going to see the doctor tonight, because they think Mirtazapine is responsible for my skin rash and my sore muscles, as none of these started until after I started taking Mirt.

Shall I keep you all updated?

    Well what ever you do don't STOOP cold turkey whatever ANY doctor tells you!!  You know the way it goes, you've been on the forum and picked up the info I'm sure about discontinuation and the devistation it causes if stopped abruptly.

    I hope the appointment goes well, not sure how they can lay nettle rash on Mirt, but will be interested to read more David.  Best wishes.
