I could really use some advice. In late July, my PD prescribed me 37.5mg mirtazapine. I was on this for probably a little over a month, but found it intolerable.
I decided to taper down, and did it way too fast. I cut 7.5mg each week until I was at 15mg. The tapering off period was pretty awful, and I decided to stay at 15mg until I felt stable again.
I've been at 15mg for 6 weeks now, and feel far more anxious and uncomfortable in my own skin than I ever did before going on the drug. I also still have a fair amount of brain fog, which is really not enjoyable
I've pretty much avoided socialising for the past few weeks. I found when I drank alcohol, I felt awful for about 4 days after.
Do you think I'm still feeling the withdrawal effects from tapering, or do you think it's likely this drug is just having a bad effect on me in general?
In other words, I'm not sure whether to start tapering again or stay at my dose in the hope things might get better 😕
Would really appreciate any advice
