I've been on Mirtazepine 10 days now and while at first, even just after a few days I started feeling the positive effects on my anxiety and depression, i'm now feeling even worse than I did before I started it due to the weight gain!
I can't stand it! I usually comfort eat when i'm feeling at my worst but this is insane! the cravings for sugary food becomes too much, snacking all the time and when im at work going out and getting food! I've even started making packed lunch and healthy dinners but its not enough and im just feeling worse!
I've always been body conscious and hate gaining weight, I do a lot of exercise to keep me in shape as well as the fact it eases my depression, however since i've gained weight on top of my usual exercise routine i've not been bothering as much and my depression has worsened...
I really do want to give this drug a try but I don't feel I can go on gaining this much weight.
I'm not seeing my doctor for another 2 weeks as that's the earliest he can see me. Is it safe to just stop now seeing as I havent been on it too long? I've had 15mg before bed once a day..
can anyone recommend me other medication that doesn't cause such hunger and weight gain? i've had citalopram but i noticed no difference on that at all...
Mirtazepine has helped for anxiety certainly and I believe in the long term probably ease a bit of depression but I don't want to be obese at that stage!
thanks in advance.
