    HI, I AM ALSO ON SEROXAT, BETA-BLOCKERS, DAZEPINE AND MIRT, FOR ANXIETY PRESCRIBED BY A PYCHIATIST,

    TRYING TO CUT DOWN THE SEROXAT WAS AT 50MG NOW 40MG, I HAVE TERRIBLE WHAT I CALL NERVOUS LEGS AND I THINK ITS THE SEROXAT, I AM VERY SENSITIVE TO ANTIDEPRESSANTS THE WORST WAS PROZAC THEN CITALOPRAM AND VENLOFAXINE, SOMETIMES I ASK MYSELF IF IT IS ANXIETY OR THE MEDS MAKING ME ANXUIOS. ALSO HAD CBT DIDNT WORK,DONT KNOW IF THIS HAS BEEN OF ANY HELP TO YOU BUT I FIND MIRT THE ONLY ONE I CAN TOLERATE, MY PSYCH TOLD ME THE MIRT WOULD MAKE ME FEEL A LOT CALMER??????????????

    I would be very cautious about taking mirtazapine as i had a very bad experience when taking it.The worse feeling was the anger and constantly being on the attack with everyone.I feel like your daughter could do without feeling like that.Second time round fluoxatine is working for me.I have tried citalopram then fluoxatine,sertraline then mirtazapine and then gone back to fluoxatine.I'm glad i tried it again.

    Depends what dose she is on.I have found that a low dose(15mg) will make you tired for a week or so.I wouldn't say the side effects are that bad,but will effect people differently.My advise is to try it for a month or so and if it's no good try something else.

    One thing though.If it is caused by abuse,won't counselling be better?I don't think drugs will solve anything in the long term,and doctors tend to hand them out because they haven't got the time to solve the persons real problems
