Mirtazapine Malaise Causes and Reviews


What is chronic fatigue syndrome?

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a serious, long-term illness that affects many body systems. Another name for it is myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). CFS can often make you unable to do your usual activities. Sometimes you may not even be able to get out of bed.

What are the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome?

CFS symptoms can include

  • Severe fatigue that is not improved by rest
  • Sleep problems
  • Post-exertional Malaise (PEM), where your symptoms get worse after any physical or mental activity
  • Problems with thinking and concentrating
  • Pain
  • Dizziness

CFS can be unpredictable. Your symptoms may come and go. They may change over time - sometimes they might get better, and other times they may get worse.

Who gets chronic fatigue syndrome?

Anyone can get CFS, but it is most common in people between 40 and 60 years old. Adult women have it more often that adult men. Whites are more likely than other races to get a diagnosis of CFS, but many people with CFS have not been diagnosed with it.

What causes chronic fatigue syndrome?

Scientists don't know what causes CFS. There may be more than one thing that causes it. It is possible that two or more triggers might work together to cause the illness.

How is chronic fatigue syndrome diagnosed?

CFS can be difficult to diagnose. There are no tests for it, and other illnesses can cause similar symptoms. Your health care provider has to rule out other diseases before making a diagnosis of CFS. He or she will do a thorough medical exam, including

  • Asking about your health history and your family's medical history
  • Asking about your current illness, including your symptoms. Your doctor will want to know how often you have symptoms, how bad they are, how long they have lasted, and how they affect your life.
  • A thorough physical and mental status exam
  • Blood, urine or other tests
What are the treatments for chronic fatigue syndrome?

There is no cure or approved treatment for CFS, but you may be able to treat or manage some of your symptoms. You, your family, and your health care provider should work together to decide on a plan. You should figure out which symptom causes the most problems, and try to treat that first. For example, if sleep problems affect you the most, you might first try using good sleep habits. If those do not help, you may need to take medicines or see a sleep specialist.

Strategies such as learning new ways to manage activity can also be helpful. You need to make sure that you do not "push and crash." This can happen when you feel better, do too much, and then get worse again.

Since the process of developing a treatment plan and attending to self-care can be hard if you have CFS, it is important to have support from family members and friends.

Don't try any new treatments without talking to your health care provider. Some treatments that are promoted as cures for CFS are unproven, often costly, and could be dangerous.

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).

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.
