I'm in a quandary. For 20+ yrs I've taken seroxat as a long term (I've always assumed, naively, lifelong) treatment for recurrent major depression. Increasing episodes of anxiety led my GP to suggest a change to mirtazapine. It's been a disaster. I'm now sleeping less that 2 hrs a night, have uncontrollable sweating, gut problems extreme anxiety and confusion, etc etc. Im Def coming off mirtazapine asap. GP wants me to go back to seroxat but I cannot bare to go through the hell of wd.....excruciating brain zaps, muscle spasms etc again. I've spent a lot of time reading, and I honestly can't see that there is any acceptable long term medication. Anyone got any ideas, thoughts, lights at end of long tunnels...? my fear is I will relapse into the original disease pattern. damned if I do, damned if I don't. Would love to hear any ideas! 🙂
