Hi, I was put on Mirtazapine a year ago for depression, last time I saw my GP he said they were not working for me and until I came off them he couldn't prescribe any thing better,he never discussed reducing the dose so I am carrying on with them for now because they help me sleep. When things get less stressful I am going to try myself to come off them gradually.
I've been on Mirtazapine for about two years now and had a 6 months break in between. Coming off it again starting next week.
45mgs sounds a lot to me that comes with all the unwanted side effects. I would wean off gradually, even 3.5mgs does the trick with less side effects. I found 7.5mgs were just right for curbing anxiety and aiding sleep.
What you had reaction to sertraline and back on 45 mgs mirt?.i suppose I was trying to taper off as had enough of tablets maybe too much at a time but my brain felt as though there was holes in it really weird.ive got underactive thyroid and type 2 diabetes so they dont help really.its not a quick fix but if they keep you balanced then I'd rather be on them than off.hope your well
