The one and only benefit I believe I had from taking this 15mg pill at bedtime was that it DID increase my appetite... Approx. 40 to 50% of the nights I slept OK without taking any Unisom or my .5 Ativan... but lately I am having trouble sleeping and the nightmares (since the Mirtazapine) have been getting worse and worse.... So....
I have felt more strange and more strange in ways that are actually hard to describe... not really anxiety or depression (those two are almost NORMAL compared to these nightmarish feelings I've been having. By now I should feel some sort of 'positive' side effects... but I'm not.
"Check with the dr" is not what I want to do because I honestly do not believe he has an answer for this. I might check to see if I can speak with a therapist (IF my insurance covers it!)
Oh for the good ol' days when all I worried about was suffering through morning anxiety... I can't deal with these dreadful feelings anymore... I don't know if I will 'taper off' of the Mirtazapine because I take a low dose (15mg) and only been on it for not even 2 months. I've heard tell some people go through bad withdrawals with any anti psychotic drug...and some do not. So... Now to the question! Have any of you gone through similar 'strange feeling' symptoms (I mean really overwhelmingly bad ones) while taking Mirtazapine?? Thanks for sharing if you have.
