I've been on 15mg mirtazapine for around a year now. Was put on them as I was having difficulty sleeping. They worked at first but now even while taking them I'm anxious and my sleep isn't all that great. Usual SEs where I'm lethargic, put on weight etc.
I'm wanting to come off them now which my GP is supporting. In the last three weeks I went down to 7.5mg then this week down to 3.75mg but WDs have just hit me.
Increased anxiety, insomnia (3-4 hours broken sleep per night with excessive dreaming) the worst abdominal pain/cramps I've ever had. Just generally feeling horrible!
Is this normal? My GP has said that I am sensitive to any meds anyway. I have another appt with her in 10 days but just wondering what to do in meantime?
Should I go back to 15mg and taper much slower? Any suggestions would be appreciated,
