Went on Sertraline 50mg about 2wks ago but I'd just finished taking Mirtazapine 45mg.

No weaning between.

Had really bad withdrawal from Mirtazapine, so my dr told me to stop the sertraline and to go back on Mirtazapine 30mg for one wk

then down to 15mg following wk. And today seen gp and gone back on sertraline 50mg but still taking Mirtazapine 15mg for one more wk and continue with sertraline 50mg and the Mirtazapine every other day. Then following wk take it every 3rd day along with sertraline and then for wk.

stop Mirtazapine and continue with sertraline but up it to 100mg have anyone done something like this.

    I've just started sertraline and week ago and I'm on mirtazipine I'm weaning off it too, but very slowly...I'm on 7.5mg and I'll be halving that in a weeks time, I tried coming off mirtazapine 7.5mg cold turkey last month but it was hell on earth! I'd wean off mirtazapine very slowly too if I was you 😊

      Aww ty its good to read someone else is going through tge same as me. Well share our experience. I hope you feel better soon. Feeling worried. Did you get any side effects from sertraline or did it just carry on if you where only taking Mirtazapine. Mirtazapine I didn't have any side effects. Kind regards.

      Didn't get any side effects from sertraline......also when I lower dose of mirtazapine I don't get any side effects just when I stop it. I take sertraline in the morning and mirtazipine at night, it's okay to take them together. Are you feeling any better on sertraline?
