I have suffered with stomach ache, nausea and severe stomach discomfort for a very long time.
I had a gastroscopy in November 2017. This showed excess stomach acid burning stomach and duodenum linings. Since then i have been prescribed several medications along with avoiding alcohol, caffeine, spicy food, fried food and acid fruits like tomatoes, oranges and pineapple. I have been back to my GP several times to say that I am feeling no better.
I have had physical examinations and blood tests - all normal.
It is only very recently after telling my GP that I am feeling very stressed and anxious,
that he prescribed an anti-depressant Mirtazapine 15mg (in addition to Lansoprazole 30mg which I was already on )
I am very pleased to say that it has had an instant effect in a dramatic reduction of my symptoms. I feel very much better. My appetite is also much better.
I am reporting this hoping that it will help others with similar circumstances as mine.

how long have you been taking the Mirtazapine and when did you see some relief, i got diagnosed with gastritis and non of the PPI is working for me, but i also have gallstones which is not bothering much. so wondering if Mirtazapine will work for me or not.
The diagnosis was gastritis - inflammation of the lining of the stomach and duodenum caused by excess stomach acid. I was prescribed Lansoprazole. After taking this for a long time and having no relief, I told my GP that I was feeling very anxious and stressed about it all. He prescribed an antidepressant - Mirtazapine.
After taking the first evening dose, I felt a significant easing of my symptoms the very next day.
