I saw my P doc 10days ago & was very lost in biploar depression. I mentioned that I was struggling with the really bad nightmares & increased salivation. The nightmares were affecting my quality if sleep & I felt dread upon waking up including after a nap. Weight wise I logged my weight once a week and didn't gain weight on 15mg since starting at 3months ago. Although I was frequently bloated which looked like weight gain.
I am glad I am off Mirt now & with no withdrawal side effects. Although its not certain as I was experiencing a bad relapse just before stopping Mirt.
I asked a CPN about withdrawal symptoms after 2 days if stopping Mirt and she had also previously been on 15mg the smallest standard dose & come off it without titrating it & no withdrawal symptoms.
So I thought I would share this here because it can be equally frightening starting & stopping psychiatric meds and the med becomes the focus of everything and its hard to know what's going on and reading too mych info can make the process worse. She wisely told me if we think it it can end up being a symptom and her being qualified & with personal experience of Mirt I have done my best to not look up info here and just let time run its course with stopping Mirt. Upon stopping Mirt my P doc also increased my Seroxat from 40mg to 60mg which might have helped me adjust too. My apppetite has increased hugely the last couple of days though so I'll keep an eye on that.
I hope my this post is of help to anyone due to or considering withdrawal from Mirtazipine and its going to be a different experience for each individual.
Peace & Best Wishes
