ive just started mt but i am regretting it reading all this information. what am i getting my self in for ive only been 15mg for 2 days and i want to come off already. do you think i will be ok if i do?

ive been suffering from aniexty thats why io was percribed it but ive felt worse these 2 days on them than in along time. i was told i should feel worse before i feel better and it takes about a week. but this doesn't make sense to me. surely once youve lasted a week your system is used to it but now you can't come off your stuck!! and if it made me feel like crap first but now i feel better how can you tell if its really made a differance if i wasn't to bad before? i had aniexty but everybody gets that don't they? i get headaches and the doctors keep saying its depression. i mean i do worry alot and that causes headaches but worryings in my family were always worriers no drug can cure that only me. surely theres anotherway? im going to try and come offf the mitazapine it doesn't seem worth it reading thses reveiws seems to make things worse.

    I've been on mirtazapine about 6wks now for depression. I've had no side-efects from them apart from them making me sleep at nights, but since I was only sleeping 3-4hrs, that's one of the reasons I was prescribed them. It did take a couple of weeks for them to work, but now I feel alot better. I no longer have the real lows. So, I would stick with them for now, give them a month or so to work, then go back to see your GP

    I started this drug on Monday - 30mg once a day, the next day I felt like crap, when I got up the next day I could barely function and had to go to work and see to my kids, that night I took them a couple of hours earlier and wasn't so bad the next day but still felt bleary eyed.

    The 3rd night I had a couple of glasses of wine took them and was still feeling bleary eyed the next day much worse than I would normally.

    Also I have been feeling really hungry and being over weight already do not need to gain anymore weight!

    After being on fluoxitine for years and having no real side effects I'm contemplating going back to the Docs and coming off them as I cannot function normally.

    Does it get any better??

    no, i didnt, i do feel hungrier though, but since I wasn't hungry before taking them, that's a good thing

    taking wine doesnt' help, and, in fact, makes the depresion worse since alcohol is a depressant, and that probably why you were bleary-eyed
