A question for those who have either managed to come off Mirt or are in the process of tapering - at what point did you start to notice any weight loss? Was it only when you stopped taking it completely or did you lose some while tapering?
I was prescribed Mirt for a bout of crippling insomnia which got so bad it left me suicidal. It eventually helped turn things around but I've put on 2 stone in weight and feel like a big fat slug 😦
Because I am doing everything within my power to avoid rebound withdrawal insomnia I am talking at 10% a month - it's a painfully slow process, currently down to 8mg.
I'm wondering if I will have to wait another year before seeing any weight loss or whether there is some hope on the horizon and I might lose a little before then. I've been lucky to be naturally slim normally but after going from a size 8 to a size 14 in just a couple of months I don't recognise my own body anymore.
Would also love to hear any tips on how people managed to avoid or overcome the withdrawal insomnia.
Sending positive vibes to all out there who are struggling with the side effects of this drug!
