I've gained about 15lbs in about 2 months and no amount of any type of diet and exercise seems to stop it from putting on pounds. I'm someone who always struggled with gaining weight and I was curious why I can't seem to get mirtazapine to stop putting on weight, is it just increased appetite or could it be from water retention or slowed metabolism? I've been dieting quite a bit so I don't feel like increased appetite is the only thing causes issues.
Also, I've reached out to my psychiatrist about starting a different medication (I'm taking mirtazapine for anxiety and depression) and I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with a similar medication. So far, mirtazapine has worked the best for anxiety/depression as I have bad reactions to SSRIs. I'm sure my psychiatrist has alternatives but I would like to do some research on other meds before I speak with him.
