Recently I had a long psychiatriatic eval with a psychiatrist and he said he thought I had General Anxiety Disorder. I was prescribed between 30 - 45 mg of Mirtazapine, and he left it up to me to find a dosage between that that suited me best.
For about a week after, I felt nothing except for a few side effects on a dose of 37.5mg. I lowered the dose to 30mg and about a week later, felt fantastic for about 6 days. After that, I started to feel bad, so I upped the dosage to 37.5mg, but I still feel pretty dreadful. I've now had about a week for feeling bad after my 6 days of feeling great.
Unfortunately, this pattern of feeling fantastic for a week and then in the next week feeling worse than ever keeps repeating itself. Over the past few months, I've tested Wellbutrin and Venlafaxine, and the story is always the same. I feel great for about 1 week and then after that feel worse than ever. Apparently my switches in moods has been noticed by people I work with (one week, full of life, confident and funny; the next week feel so bad that I curl up into a shell of myself)
Does anyone know what the hell is going on here? I'm considering just giving up on medication altogether as it only seems to make me feel worse.
