weening off of remeron.. can I have withdrawal symptoms before completely off of it??

Posted , 3 users are following.

Can weening off of antidepressants cause panic attacks in your sleep? I just had one tonight and I’m super freaked out. I’ve also felt really sick today and I’ve had really bad anxiety issues today. I’ve only dropped to half of my dose on Monday, and I’m continuing to take half of what I usually take until probably Sunday. Is this normal?? Can you experience withdrawal symptoms before you’re completly off of meds? I’m so worried right now and I’m so scared of the next couple of months😭😭

    Absolutely you can always tapper down very very slowly it can cause all of your symptoms that your having when I had to wean of mirtazapine I had to do it very slowly and I also got 5mg Valiums of my GP to help me I am now on lovan due to being diagnosed with fibromyalgia but coming of that was one of the hardest thing I had to do wishing you all the sending you my love just remember slowly and yes it can cause all of that and more ???? Talk to your GP some don’t believe that you get WD coming of them so speak up and don’t back down what you are feeling is real not in your head 💕💕

    yes, my doctor also cut my dose in half,and have had a racing heart for 5 days, day 6 was better today is day 7, seems better today, don't want to go back to my old dose was on 7 5 now on 3.75, so I am trying to tough it out, at least you are still taking the lower dose just try to stick it out for a week or so,
