I have a sleep anxiety issue, and I have been taking mirtazapine for 6 months which has worked great. I started on 15mg, then after 4 months I'd noticed I'd gained a lot of weight (normally on the very slim side so was a shock!) 2 stone to be precise. So I cut down to 7.5mg with no issues re sleep. However I was not losing any weight despite trying via food and exercise. My concern was the health effect as well as the physical effect as it increases triglycerides etc.
So I cut down to 3.75mg (quatree of a tablet) and then managed to come off completely for the last 2 weeks.
However my sleep anxiety has returned. I'm very frustrated as thought I could shift some of this weight. Can anyone of you be completely honest with me and tell me if you think 3.75mg can cause weight gain/reduce ability to lose weight? I'm hoping to take every other night when I get back into a good sleep routine.
