hey there everyone. Not posted for a bit but hoping for a spot of advice. I have been on Mirt for about 3 months, 15 upped to 30 then upped to 45mg. 45mg was the last try to see if this drug helped. Its not made much of an inroad so now looking at reducing down and perhaps trying something else. Dropped to 30mg last night, will do 30 again tonight, and seeing the community mental health team tomorrow to talk next steps. Would be grateful of any thoughts on speed of reduction from now. I was thinking probably up to a week on the 30mg before dropping to 15mg. then can you do 7.5mg? is that splitting a pill, I am in the UK so not sure if 7.5 mg can be prescribed. They are talking about switching me then to Lofepramine. I am not sure I really want to go down that road. This is going therefore from a NASSA drug to a TCA drug. I hear more positive things about combining a low dose of Mirt with an SSRI. Lots of questions here, just trying to be a bit more informed before my meeting tomorrow.
