Isn't this drug for depression?  Seems odd it has its own page and that many people struggle with this drug.

    I do not think it is odd that there is a forum about mirtazapine.

    These forums are dominated  by people who are struggling because they are the ones who need help.  People who are not struggling rarely bother to post.

    Why does itseem odd? It is used for depression and like many anti-depressants people can struggle with finding the right one for their needs, some might not find out its wrong for them until much further down the line when their bodies have become addicted so they struggle to come off them so this forum is to try to help people with that!

    I agree with you Missy,This drug is for Depprestion.

    when you have forums from A-Z of illnesses,then you have a medication in the middle of them (Mirtazapine) is beyond me. Depprestion should just be under Depprestion.

    You don't get the name of any other medication,in the A-Z of any other illnesses.

    So your right WHY?

    Example you would have Underactive Thyroid,not the medication for it.

      If you look under Discussion Forums you will find many sub-forums such as Brain and Nerves.   I have looked at several of those forums and every one of those has at least one sub-sub-forum about a particular drug.  

      If you find the group for thyroidism  you will find a menu on the right hand side which has all the sub-forums and among those are lots of drugs !

      Look under Forum,not discussions. 

      Of cause there's a Forum for Brain and Nerves,because Brain and Nerves are an illness.

      Im talking FORUMS not DISCUSSTIONS.   Yes you can look up medication for a certain illness,but that's not the point I'm makeing.

      I believe you either want someone to have a discussion with or an argument ( which your getting through me) because you just don't seem to understand what's being said unless it's in agreement with you.

      LOOK UP FORUMS!!!!

    I'm not sure why there is an issue or question about this but we have groups for many medications across all types. The A-Z is not just illnesses but conditions and medicines. Some of the most popular groups are the medicine groups. This is because users want specific information or to ask about treatments like Mirtazapine rather than about depression for example. If this hasn't answered any query reply here and I can advise further if required.

    Regards,

    Alan

      Wow...I didn't mean to start a "hostile" discussion...LOL.

      I didn't ever hear of the drug and was curious as to why it had its own page...simple.

      Because Citalopram is discussed widely and numerous times on the depression board and every drug does not have its own discussion board.

      To me a drug being seperated out from a typical area like "Depression" signals...a PROBLEM drug to me.

      I think if a Dr,. prescribe this to me...because it was seperated out on the forum....I would pass.....seems to be too troublesome to most taking it or withdrawing from it.

    Hi Missy2, I would just like to tell you not to take Roses comment to heart,l believe she was directing that to old boy .  As he don't seem to have any compassion for people who are struggling with WD from Mirtazapine .

                So I don't think she intended on offending you.

      I have compassion for people anybody who is in trouble.  What you and Rose do not understand is that these forums are not only for expressing that.   If I post something positive about mirtazapine you take it as if it were an insult, and resort to making personal comments about me.   That is not in the spirit of these forums.
