I don't usually post on any forum but I am going through what many of you are going through. I could use a little support and would like to give some as well if I can. I have been on Mirtazapine 30mg for 8 months and as a result have gained more than 40 lbs. I've had enough. The weight gain has caused me more problems than the depression did. So about 3 weeks ago I cut myself down to 15mg mirtazapine per day. As a result I have suffered some anxiety (manageable), moderate to severe body aches (which is complicated by the fact that I already suffer from severe chronic pain due to 8 bulging discs in my spine that I take 6 medications in an effort to control including 2 narcotic pain medications), the first week I had insomnia but now I find myself sleeping almost around the clock which I find to be a Godsend (it beats the heck out of suffering constantly). On Friday I plan to stop taking Mertazapine altogether. Cold Turkey. If you would like I will let you know how I'm making out and I would very much like to know how you've made out.
Thank you in advance for your reply and I wish you all great success in your endeavor to stop taking this horrible medication.
P.S. Please be very careful as stopping this medication too abruptly can cause life threatening effects. If you begin to feel too badly either physically or mentally please, please, please call your doctor immediately or go to the nearest hospital for help. Nobody wants you to be a dead hero!
