    Hi Dave I've been on Mirtazapine for 4yrs I am now comeing off them as I feel there one tablet less and I think your body gets used to them in time.I am really struggling even though I'm tapering off real slow.But I'll get there.I also take Diazapam .Id go back to your GP and discuss something else.

    Dave one doctor tells you one thing then another tells you something else,I think at the end of the day your best off using your own judgement .I also can never understand why they take you off one tablet that suits you for another.Anyway don't worry and have a nice holiday.
