Mirtazapine Fall Causes and Reviews


A Fall can change your life. If you're elderly, it can lead to disability and a loss of independence. If your bones are fragile from osteoporosis, you could break a bone, often a hip. But aging alone doesn't make people Fall. Diabetes and heart disease affect balance. So do problems with circulation, thyroid or nervous systems. Some medicines make people dizzy. Eye problems or alcohol can be factors. Any of these things can make a Fall more likely. Babies and young children are also at risk of Falling - off of furniture and down stairs, for example.

Falls and accidents seldom "just happen." Taking care of your health by exercising and getting regular eye exams and physicals may help reduce your chance of Falling. Getting rid of tripping hazards in your home and wearing nonskid shoes may also help. To reduce the chances of breaking a bone if you do Fall, make sure that you get enough calcium and vitamin D.

Mon, 27 Sep 2010

Started on 15mg and now on 30 mg after two weeks. Feel absolutely awful. No energy, always tired and getting worse. Giving it a go as i'm told it will get better as body adjusts

Sat, 04 Sep 2010

I've been on this medication for 7 days (15mg). Right now it makes me verrrry sleepy about 40mins after I take it. I have excellent sleeps, but can sleep 12-14 hours if I don't set my alarm! The only other side effect I've experienced so far, is memory lapses. I'll go to the cupboard to get something, but then forget what I went to get (this happens at least twicea day).

Mon, 23 Aug 2010

this med sucks and it will kill you... real talk

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.

Hi, I just started Mirtazapine in 11/11 because of the sensitivity of my body and how it reacts to medications I had to start at a low dosage (15mg cut into 4 pc. for 3.75mg) I have recently increased my dosage to 7.5mg (1/2 15mg tablet) I have experienced weight gain (20lbs in one month) breast enlargement, blurred vision, angered easily and we just did a blood panel and I am showing elevated liver enzymes more than 3 times the high amount, we have done a ultra sound and my liver looks great I also have no accompanying symptems (i.e. jaundice, dark urine)! However I am also getting low HCT (hematocrit) and feel very tired at times. Low hematocrit is a sign of anemia however I clot just fine and am not an excessive bleeder. I also have noticed swelling in my extremities exspecially my hands. I follow up with the Dr on 2/7/12 to do another CBC.
