Withdrawal Mirtazapine

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello all,

I'm in psychological treatment, I'm taking various medications (Paroxetin , Elvanse Clonazepan...). Last week my psychiatrist took me of Mirtazapine 15mg cold turkey after using it for three months and prescripted me Topiramat and Quetiapin. I went through hell with the withdrawal. Yesterday I went to talk to my psychiatrist and he said that he doesn't believe in Mirtazapine withdrawal. But now I'm back on Mirtazapine 15mg until I stabilize and then I will reduce 1/4 of the tablet every week. What are your experiences with withdrawal from Mirtazapine? And what is the best way to do it?

I'm very afraid now with the terrible experience I had.
