I have been put on mirtazapine for anxiety and depression. I am wondering if it is habit-forming and if it is easy to stop taking it. I would much prefer a tablet which I can take just when I need something. Previously I have found that a single propranolol 10mg or Diazepam 2 mg would calm me down if I needed something.
Having said that, the specialist may well have spotted that I was on the verge of developing problems, as I wasn't too surprised when he suggested medication. After four days of 'one tablet at night', it doesn't appear to have affected my driving - I am 85, so being very careful.
