Anyone have any success doing this? after 10 months on gradually increasing doses ive been on 45mg for 2 months. I now feel as depressed as before I started on mirt.

    Hi It sounds like Mirt isn't working for you. I would go to your GP and he may suggest another medication for you after you have weaned off mirt. I weaned off parox over 4 weeks as stopped working. I had been taking it for 18years. Now on new medication and after only 2 weeks felt well. Please go to your GP for advise. You need to find the right medication!

    Hi,

    I just switched to 60 last week and not yet seeing any benefits. I was having good and bad days on the 45mg. Was still anxious with light-headedness and stomach being nervous in the morning so psychiatrist suggested I up to 60mg. When I told her I'm not feeling better maybe a bit worse she said it was too early I have to give it 2 to 3 weeks. I'm so frustrated!!!!

      Hi

      I thought the highest safest dose was 45? 

      I’m so confused. I too have to wait to see results. But it’s bern almost 2 1/2 weeks since I changed from 30 to 45 and still feel the same 😢

      Hi,

      I'm from Canada so it may be different. But I can down to 30 because of my liver and will be reducing further. Sometimes it can take a bit longer to see results. But to be honest I feel better on the 30 than I did the 60. So maybe 45 is too much for you
