I have been withdrawing from mirtazapine 30mg for the past couple of months and am now down to just over 5mg for the past 6 days. I have been doing really well with no withdrawal symptoms that I'm aware of.

But last four days I have devellopped a stiff neck and persistent headache which doesn't respond to paracetamol. My head is very sore to the touch at the base of my skull on right side like I have really banged it, but I haven't. Now I have a pulsing earache and sore glands right side of neck. Could this be withdrawal from mirtazapine? No fever or rash.

    Hi evergreen, sore glands isn't a withdrawal I'm familiar with, maybe see your GP?

    Good luck

      Thanks, my instinct is that it's nothing to do with mirtazapine withdrawal but just wanted to check before wasting my GP's time.

      Any concerns about your health isn't a waste of time, better to get checked and reassured than make your health worse by worrying about symptoms 😉

    Sounds like the virus that is going around Evergreen, especially with the glands coming into play ~ although WD does have headache on the list.  

    How are you feeling now??  

    Best wishes

      Yes, you are right, it is a virus, because my son is now in bed with it. I still have the headache but thankfully the earache has gone. Head still feels sore and bruised to the touch but I'm feeling a little less 'brain dead' than yesterday.

      Great, at least you know what it is I mean.  So many people have this, headaches, weariness & fatigue with burning eyes maybe?  No wonder you thought it was wd!!

      Good luck with the next drop, 3.75 is it?
