Weaned off Citalopram and Started taking mirtazapine 2 nights ago as citalopram wasn’t really helping with my anxiety and not sleeping. Doctor said mirtazapine should help with both the anxiety/panic attacks and help me sleep. So far, it makes me super sleepy yet restless, toss and turn for a few hours before I drift off to sleep. Last night, awoke from a vivid nightmare and within minutes I had uncontrollable shaking/tremors/jerking movements which lasted approx 20 mins. Has anyone else experienced this?
I have sought medical advice from a doctor/pharmacist but would like to know if others have experienced this and how long it lasted.
