Remeron and Mirtazapine withdrawal help

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi so I have been on 30mg of Mirt for about 3 years. I want to get off of this crap like now! I have gained so much weight I look like I am pregnant but I am so so nervous about the withdrawal. I have gone through benzos withdrawal and wonder if this is similar. I'm starting my first 15mg taper tonight. Any advise or insight would be helpful. Thanks in advance I'm new here

    Hi your withdrawal might not be to bad everyone is different I came of them with no withdrawals but I know some people do take your 15mg and see how you feel I can understand your fears as coming of benzodiazepines are terrible I know just seen how you feel on 15mg first xxxxx

    Hi me again if you do find it to hard I'd get your 30mg and chip bits of every few nights. My son did this with an antidepressant he was on he was able to come off with no horrible withdrawals I know it takes longer hope it goes well for you xxxxx

    Dropping 15 mg is way to fast. Reccomended taper is 5-10% every 2-4 weeks

      I just suggested it if you read my other post you'd understand that I realise that for some people it is that is why I suggested chipping the tablet just like my son

      Carol I make my own liquid so I can get exact amounts. It's easily done cutting and shaving bits off pills is never accurate enough.
