I've been on mirtazapine for a few months now and have gained nearly two stone despite trying to watch what I'm eating - none of my clothes fit me anymore. It's awful. I was already self-conscious of my weight before because I have a history with disordered eating, and am super aware of any change in my weight because of this. It's hard for me to lose weight under normal circumstances because I'm very short, so can't eat the same amount as other people without putting on the pounds, but this is getting ridiculous - my BMI now classes me as nearly morbidly obese. I'm so frustrated that this particular medication has been given to me to combat depression when my medical notes should list a history including eating disorder 😦 The depression I feel from the weight gain is getting to the point where it outweighs any help the mirtazapine actually gives me, but I don't know if this can be changed right now due to the covid-19 pandemic, so I feel even more hopeless over that.
