I have not posted for a while but intended to post yesterday to let you know that Sunday would be 4 weeks at 7.5 for me having reduced from 15mg and 30 before that.
I started with mirtazapine end of January.
Any way I was going to say that I was fine and no wd symptoms.
Out of the blue at 7.30pm on Friday July 10 it hit me with a bang!
My BP was very high and heart rate 145!
To cut a long story each day has got worse.
I am in pain all over my body. Can not eat,feeling beyond exhaustion,
Very irratable,teary, insomnia and this very high pulse and BP.
I feel so bad that a few times today I decided I would go back to 15mg which would be a daft thing to do as these weeks will be wasted and I have to come off eventually.
When I tapered to 15mg from 30mg I was fine for 2 weeks and then they kicked in quite badly but I stuck with it and when things improved I tapered to 7.5mg.
My question is, do you think I should stick with this dose and hope things will improve or shall I try missing 1 day a week or taper down to 3.5mg?
My GP says there are no wd effects! sigh!
I can honestly say that this is one of the worst 'ill feeling'days I have ever experienced and I have had some really bad times over the years.
MY OH has a heart condition and cancer and I hate to see him so worried.
I started on this drug for anxiety and the only benefit was that I sleep better!
I know that so many on here have far greater suffering and my heart goes out to you.
It has taken me a very long time to type this and I'm sure there will be mistakes.
It is so good to come here where others understand.
Thank you so much and I send love and best wishes to you all.
