Hi, I have been on 15mg of Mirt now for 4 weeks & want off, can anybody recommend a safe tapering routine to reduce withdrawal symptoms, I don't have access to the liquid version, only tablets. Thanks

    I spoke to my doctor & he wants me to stay on Mirt for another month, he suggested increasing to 30mg or 22.5mg from 15mg. I have been on now for nearly 5 weeks & so far it is only helping my appetite & sleep slightly, not my Anxiety & Depression. Should I stay on 15 for another month, increase or taper off? Thanks

    After thinking long & hard I have decided to go ahead & taper off my 15mg that I have been on for 5 weeks. I have decided after realising Mirt has been only helping my appetite & sleep slightly, not my Anxiety or improving my mood. This is my taper plan :

    1. 25mg for 2 weeks

      7.5mg for 2 weeks

    2. 75 for 2 weeks

      1.875 for 2 weeks

      1.875 every second, third day etc till I am a week between doses then off...

    Is this a reasonable tapering plan?
