Why am I feeling no withdrawal side effects?

Posted , 5 users are following.


I wish to come off Mirtazapine, so I last took 45mg nearly 6 days ago and I'm feel no withdrawal symptoms (unlike when I came off Venlafaxine, I experienced eye zaps and spasms). Is this normal or will I experience them a week or two later?

Just to clarify, I know it's best to slowly reduce the dosage, albeit I've taken a risk and stopped completely, I seem to be doing OK though so far. cool

    Hopefully it stays that way for you and a lot depends on each individual and how long you've been taking Mirtazapine. Sometimes it takes a while before you really start to feel the effects of getting off of a medication and 45 mg to nothing is a big drop but I hope you keep doing well!

    WOW, well I sincerely hope you stay this way ~ what made you decide to cold turkey Phillip??

    Sadly sometimes people feel well for about 10 days-2weeks, then BAM it hit you, don't mean to worry you, but don't flush any tablets you may have left down the loo.

    Hope it goes well for you, let us know.

    Wishing you well.

    Some times it can take up to 10 days to feel the WD, Be on your guard and  best not to get to confident as I have done in the past.
