    I was on mirtazapine for around 4 months and they were amazing , the first night i took my 15mg dose within 30 mins i was the most relaxed i had been in weeks althought the hungry cravings then started!!! Which in all fairness wasnt a bad thing as i hadnt been eating for weeks due to the severe anxiety. They did make me very foggy headed in the mornings for a few weeks but it did wear off , the severe hunger didnt. I then got put on venaflaxine and they were the worst 5 days in mu life my anxiety was 10 fold what it was and i nearly ended up being sectioned. So after the experiance im terrorfied to take any medication even mirtazapine which i knew i was ok on xxx

      Hi thankyou so much for your reply so I should be hopefull for mirtazipine I also suffer severely with anxiety 😔 I have been on venlafaxine for about 2 years I was put on it cause I tried to do away with myself and like you the first few months it was hell on earth I don't trully know how I stuck it out I thought I'd completely cracked up and still I have had no benefit from taking it that why I'm changing I am terrified of taking any medication but I also can't live without it 😔 so very sorry to hear your awful experience would you not go back onto the mirtazipine ? I am worried about the weight thing but if this makes me feel even slightly better I'd rather be rather large lol 😉 best wishes to you x
