About a year and a half ago I got a prescription for mirtazapine to cope with my anxiety and after taking it for two days as directed, I fainted about an hour after waking up. I went to the doctor because I had never fainted before and he told me that he thought i had vasovagal syncope. He actually told me he had VS and that he thought the medication had caused me to faint so I stopped taking it. We didn't run any tests, but after doing research I trust his diagnosis. Since then I have fainted a couple of times and come close many more (feeling light headed and dizzy, tunnel vision, ringing ears). I have been struggling with my anxiety a lot in the past few weeks and still have a lot of medication left. I am feeling at a loss and spoke to a psychiatrist after searching for months, only to have him ignore my anxiety and treat my ADHD alone. I would like to give the mirtazapine another go but I don't want to endanger my health.
