it seems there are several posts here mention anxiety and that it can be worse on Mirtazapine.
my opinion is that the root cause of anxiety comes from feelings deep in the unconscious part of the psyche, particularly anger and rage that get repressed by the conscious mind, because they're incompatible with how the conscious mind wants to live life. In my case (2 1/2 years of Repetitive Strain Injury) I believe that instead of anxiety being a symptom, my brain started the process of creating physical symptoms - what is termed a mindbody equivalent ( using the term \"mindbody\" to emphasise the innate relationship between the two, something that modern medicine has huge problems with)
I found I only started to get physically better recently using analytical self-psychology (NOT CBT) after Dr. Sarno (see Google) BUT mentally, I turned into an emotional basket case, flipped out, and that's why I have been on Mirtazapine and now trying to withdraw. problem is, it was having such a sedating effect, the physical symptoms seemed to be there more in the mornings and I was starting to get anxious as well.
I am wondering whether anyone else feels that Mirtazapine has the effect of blocking the unconscious mind even more, therefore causing more anxiety. (Think there would have to be caveats around the effects of different dosages, and we know. It affects everyone different anyway) Anyone care to comment on this theory?
