I've mentioned about weight gain on Mirtazapine before, but I was just wondering.. has anyone managed to loose weight whilst on this? I enjoy exercise.. I had a long break from the gym, and started going back about 2 months ago. I find my anxiety is worse when I'm on the cardio machines, I suppose because of the exercise the heart starts beating faster, sweating.. and this is associated with anxiety and panic attacks and then I get scared that I'll fall off the machine or even have a heart attack! So lately I've mostly used the weight machines. I try to do Yoga a few times a week too. Controlling the eating is, however, a lot harder! I feel hungry every hour, though I can't eat too much at once, I'll still feel hungry within an hour later. And the sweet and carb cravings! If I'm not craving carbs, then I'm craving chocolate, cake, donuts etc. I just can't seem to resist them, especially with having bad influences around me (my partner or my mum sometimes come back with treats).. I've been trying to fill myself up on fruit (which sometimes helps the sugar craving) for instance.. stawberries with greek yogurt. I've heard that including more protein will help to loose weight. Has anyone lost weight whilst on Mirtazapine? I'm at a size 16 now, and I really want to slim down to a size 10-12.. especially as the summer is coming up! xx
