Tapering off Mirtazapine

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi all, I've been on here a few times talking to people,but my story is a little different.   I was put on 45mg of Mirt about 7-8yrs ago for IBS,I know don't make sense to me now either. Anyway after about 3yrs I came off it without any problem,then I was taken in Hostpital for a life threatening desease.         ( Ephesema ) When I came home I was very low so GP put me back on 45mg of Mirt again.  Now due to the fact that I'm on a lot of meds,I'd like to come off it again,well I've got down to 15mg no problem,but going lower is killing my Stomack ,the pain is unbearable at times.   Now I doubt anyone out there has been put on Mirt for the same reason,but have any of you got any suggestions on vitamins or anything that might help. I would be grateful of any ideas.

      Hi La12, I'm going even slower than that, same idea but not such low doses,I don't care how long it takes me.  I used to talk to a person on here who really struggled to come off them,a his knowledge was brilliant . But he's off them now so he's gone off the site. But I do remember a lot of his advice . This is my second attempt but I'm determine I'll get of them this time.  All the same thank you for your post much appreciated.
