I posted a while back asking about weight loss coming off Mirt 30mg a day. I've tapered myself down to 7.5mg, and while experiencing a dip in my mood and a lot of tiredness, I still have a horrible raging appetite and I can't lose weight.
I have EDNOS with a strong binge/purge tendency. I struggle with body image at the moment and gained 4 kilos after starting Mirtazapine. At the moment I can't stand to look at myself in the mirror, I only wear baggy clothes and I can't even sit down without feeling miserable. It's hell. I am terrified that my appetite won't go down after I come off Mirtazapine and I'll have to deal with it for the rest of my life. I desperately want to lose weight but NOTHING seems to work and I find it so difficult to prevent binges. If I start eating anything with carbs or sugar I can't stop eating. I really really need help - when will the weight gain stop? I'm coming down again to 3.75 tomorrow.
(Also on 225mg Venlafaxine o/d, 150mg Pregabilin t/d, 100mg Lamotrigine b/d, but none of these seem to give me any problems weight-wise).
