Mirtazapine Depression Reviews

Tue, 21 Sep 2010

The above comment is too stupid, I actually LOLed at you Pete... lol you gave it 2 days and your complaining about the side-effects? and on 15 mgs? LMAO!!! It takes couple weeks at least to cope with the side-effects; just like many other drug. What is this; your first ever prescription medication? Your comment is misleading for others and very stupid.

I was on 45 mgs Mirtazipine for 2 years and even when I stopped abruptly I experienced zero to none of the withdrawal symptoms people are talking about... (but that might just be me, everyone is diff, however I never heard anyone dying from taking this medication. Unless combined with Benzos, pain killers and alcohol at the same time as it will def in that case cause severe CNS Depression and consequently death.

I would take 30 mg at nighttime for anxiety/insomnia and 15mgs in the mornings or after lunch. It is an excellent antidepressant, however you munch out a lot while on it, and you def put of more weight than before you start the medication. So, if weight gain is an issue for you, stay away from this one. Talk to your physician about alternate choices. Probably the best is Welbutrin if you weight is an issue for you.

48 year old male, I have suffered Depression all my life. Have used SSRI's for the last ten years with good but mixed results. Last year lost my job due to an episode where I ended up throwing my monitor across the office and have not been able to work since. At the time I was using venlafaxine and had been for a couple of years. Kept on with the venlafaxine but early this year decided, along with the fact I wasn't feeling any better, that it was time to change. Wish I hadn't! Am downstairs typing this because I am afraid to go to the bedroom in case I hurt my partner. Have not thought about suicide for years but now all of a sudden it seems a good idea again and I have planned any number of scenarios. Have rages where I have smashed phones, spectacles and cameras and most days barely contain myself. And on top of that am plagued with constant morbid thoughts about harming the pets and that I may do any of these things and begin to think that it's normal! Thank you Mirtazapine for fucking over my life. Ok, a lot of the symptons I have described have been part of my life at some point or other, but now I have them all at once all the time. I used to be able to manage them but now I can't. I currently using 30 mg Mirtazapine but not for much longer. Now that I realised what is my Depression and what is Mirtazapine psychosis I look forward to just having my own symptoms back. Sod knows what next though.
