      Hi Calmer

      so glad to hear this as I was starting to think I did definitely lost the plot, id a good few wks just with a few dips in the road but nothing that out of the scale, but then I started getting this sound in my head mostly when I was just about to sleep like  zap sound but went right through my head.. (really strange sound and feeling ) now the ringing in my ears started ...

      my anixety isn't definitely as bad as what it was but it's still hanging about guess it all just takes time

      Thank you very much for your reply

      can I ask where you are in this mirtazapine journey? Have you completley titrated off?and stayed off,and for how long?and if so how long until all withdrawel symptoms completley resolved? Are you now medication free?or did you go to a different antidepressant? Sorry for all the questions,but you may be able to offer hope to many on here.what I find baffling is,I can't see any success stories,and after going through this hell titration get off,if I have success story would 100% share it,and give other poor souls hope.

      I use to get it coming from the front of my head, usually at bed time.

      Then I started to get them coming from the back of my head at early hours of the morning. Coincided with me not sleeping well at the time. 

       But then everything is so much more noticeable when you go to sleep in the dark and quiet! 

      Still quiet fatigued with a good mixture of anxiety added on for an extra bit of fun! Weird combination. Never felt so slow mentally but then weird at the same time. Just don't what to do with myself half the time! 

      Waiting game I guess...

      Hi Graeme

      Are you tapering/off Mirt?  

      Yes those sudden "brain zaps" in the middle of the night ... best description I even heard was "like a freight train entering my bedroom" !   Suddenly comes & then gone in a flash, frightening when it first happens though.

      Hi Calmer,

      Yeah been off Mirtz now for 4mths. Still experiencing a lot of the withdrawal symptoms. Anxiety/depression/lack of energy/intolerance to noise, amongst others!

      Just hoping that the end of this is near 🤞🏻

      I was on 45mg Chrisy. 

      Came off via instructions from GP. He had me drop to 30mg for about a month then down to 15mg for about a week, then stop. Way too fast for the length of time I was on it. But only found that out weeks after unfortunately.
