I'm a 21 year old women who has been on 45mg of mirtazipine for the last year. I ballooned from 7st to 11st 7lbs and had an unbelievable appetite. I have never been overweight in my life, I was never NOT hungry. It's made me so miserable. I feel repulsed by my lack of self control and appearance. I have tapered down to 30mg / 15mg depending on how hard it is for me to sleep.
I use them mainly because I cannot sleep without them, but I refuse to take them again.. I'm terrified of withdrawal because I get very aggressive and suicidal.. However I am on tramadol which I honestly believe will make it easier for me.. Has anyone else had success quitting cold turkey ? Tapering does not work for me.. I always end up having a breakdown and taking more than I should
I have no more mirtazipine in the house and this will be my first night not taking them.. I guess I'm looking for words of support ? Anyone who has managed this successfully ? I feel ashamed of myself, I'm 21 and have no life - mirtazipine has not only lead me to gain weight but I am so groggy and lightheaded from them, I stumble around and constantly feel like I may pass out on them, which has led me to isolate myself in my house.. I leave maybe once every two weeks.. This drug has ruined my life Please tell me that there is light at the end of this awful tunnel ??
