Some advice would be great please. I've been sufferering from severe depression for a number of years now. I've dabbled a bit with therapy, but I'm not a great believer that it can help me. I was prescribed Sertraline about a year ago but after being on it for a couple of months and having the dosage upped, I suffered from serotonin syndrome and came straight off it (Doctors orders). She prescribed me Mirtazapine but it's been sat in the drawer ever since...nearly a year now.
My depression is now the worst it's ever been. I've booked an appointment with my Dr but she's on holiday till september so it's not for another 3 weeks. My partner says I need to be on tablets now, rather than waiting (he's suffered from, and beaten depression and can't understand why I can't do the same) but he just doesn't understand how bad a reaction I had to tablets last time and therefore doesn't understand why I don't want to just start them - especially with my Dr being away (I don't want to see a locum). He's also pushing me to try therapy as the combination of tablets and that worked for him.
Any advice would be appreciated - what are others take on starting Mirtazapine please and has anyone suffered from serotonin syndrome whilst on this tablet?
Thanks in advance.
