This is my 2nd attempt at stopping Started in May 2016 on 15mg then droped to 7.5mg a year later on wife's suggestion.

The sleep's been great during Mirta but i HATE the weight gain hence the stopping.

Dont know whats gonna happen its only been 2 days...

I"m hoping vigorous exercise plus natural drops for sleep from the organic health shop will help with the sleep...

    i been on mirtazapine for a long time  for sleep but  on 15mg only gives me about 4 hours sleep, higher dose give me real bad anxiety but make me sleep.  so two weeks ago i thought i give CBD oil a  go ,convinced i'd be wasting  my money  as nothing has ever  worked in past with out sever side effects with prescription drugs and other things not working. to my surprise I've slept right through every night and my anxiety has dramatically improved, over the last two weeks I've been taking it. with no side effects and feeling much better in health generally and my  fibromialga a  lot better. i am totally amazed after year of insomnia and  severe anxiety. i'lll give it another week or two and i'm going to  try lower the mirtazapine dose

    I've gone cold turkey, I can't stand the weight gain and continuous need to eat. Also I had awful nightmares I dreaded going to sleep. Fingers crossed all will be well.
