  1. Hello, first things first...iam from germany so my english might not be perfect, but will try to give my best. I have had problems with nausea and vertigo in situations like having dinner with strangers on a trip for a few years. First a few episodes a year, later (end of 2019/begin 2020) those episodes were more often and in other situations like when going to a party. I tried to control it with Diphenhydramin for about 4 months (25 to 50 mg every second day or so). It worked at first i guess, but wasnt a gamechanger. I stopped it in January/Febru
  2. Hi, my signature basically says it all. I got into psychiatry over 2 years ago and got on seroquel and Mirtazapine for my depression & sleep problems. The opposite happened. I stopped sleeping & had severe adverse reactions. I could not stop sleeping & started to have akathisia & dyskinesia from the first tablet I took but continued to take it as I thought it was my depression getting worse or I thought I got food poisoning or something. Anyway... stopped CT both drugs at psychiatry after finding this site due to sever
  3. Hi I feel I am writing this too late as I have made many errors in my withdrawal from Mirtazapine and subsequent reinstatement but I only found this website and information recently. Perhaps you can still help me. In October, I tapered off from just under 1.5mg Mirt where i had been for several months following a slow taper from 7.5mg (18 months total time). The doctor told me this dose was too low to have therapeutic value but if I wanted to taper i should miss alternate nights, then 2 nights etc...and I should be off in a month. I did this but had insomnia on th
  4. Hello all, I could use some help determining whats happening to me. Went to bed around 11pm and woke up around 2pm.

  5. I was on mirtazipine for 13 weeks which included a fast taper of 3.5 weeks from 30mg to 7.5mg then off. Never had insomnia in my life before this drug. Insomnia started when on 30mg and has just got worse and worse. Now 7 weeks off and can only get 2 hours sleep some nights. I am a very elderly woman Will it end.

It is ruining my life and my husband’s. At my age, will this ever end. Has anyone experienced insomnia and
  6. Hi everyone, Hey, first off -- found you guys after being referred by some fantastic individuals who are part of several Mirtazipine Withdrawal support groups on Facebook. Thanks so much for this site! As such -- AltoStrata, I've read a ton of your stuff already, in particular the posts about Windows/Waves, Mirtazipine tapering tips and, more crucially, the post about AD reinstatement (in the event of CT WD.) Like everyone here, I have a somewhat unique story, with a bit of a twist....perhaps you guys will find it intriguing, at least. Anyway -- m

    Gilla999: hello

    Just thought I'd post a quick intro post. I've been taking Mirtazapine since July after a bout of insomnia (not my first) which was so severe this time that my mental health deteriorated very badly and after a suicide attempt I was eventually hospitalised. Thankfully the Mirtazapine was the thing that eventually helped turn the corner with the sleep. After only a short time I knew I wouldn't want to be on it long term and started a quick taper pretty quickly. I figured as I had only been on it for about 3 weeks I would be fine to do a quick taper - more fool me! Gave myself horrific withdrawal
  8. I want to know how to get off of this medication because I Dont like how it's making me feel it makes me feel so numb so I want out but I don't know how to. I've had this medication for 1/2 a month and I took it off and on during this time and now I'm worried that I might've ruin my nervous system from taking it at different times of the night .I don't know what to do My dad said just stop taking it but I know that's not safe at all I had went through withdrawal symptoms like around 3 days when I didn't take them which shows me to take it slow I guess I didn't take them again today but yesterd
  9. acp1 I was prescribed Mirtazapine 15mg by a nurse prescriber because I was unable to sleep and was having panic attacks at night. I was going through a really hard time having had 3 colleagues die within 5 weeks and then getting very ill with COVID 19. I have been taking the tablets for 3 weeks and have not been getting on with them. I have halved the dose over the last couple of days. I would like to stop taking it as I feel that I do not usually suffer with anxiety, insomnia or depression. I feel in a much better place now to deal with problems and I do not want any severe withdr
  10. I tried to taper off of Mirtazapine in March by skipping pills; I was not aware how dangerous this was at the time. My withdrawal symptoms were mild because I was lucky. I had some anxiety in April, but nothing major. I went cold turkey after my prescriber told me that I didn’t need to taper Mirtazapine. He also pressured me into taking Effexor, which caused me to develop severe full-body itching. I was taken off of the pills immediately because it was suspected that I was allergic to them. I suffered from severe withdrawal symptoms during the week where I w
  11. Hi Everyone . New member here and in need of advice if possible . I've been taking mirtazipine for just over 7 weeks for sleep issues which caused me anxiety. My doctor subscribed me sertaline which only after 3 dosed send me to extreme anxiety and took my anxiety from 3 too 100 . When back to my GP and he subscribed me mirtazipine 15mg ...I was on it for 4 weeks and although it helped a little with sleep ...didn't knocked me out all night like most and as I didn't feel any improvement as was feeling very groggy , brain fog etc...my GP advised to increase to 30mg which I've
  12. Hi so this is my story I took magic mushroom which elevated my depression when I was 20yeard old. Every 3 month I used to get frustrated from life and go to a place where this drug is free. I had depression and anxiety before this which is why I started magic mushroom. At the age of 21 I thought that it's too expensive to go to places out of country and take it there. Why don't I take a pill which removes depression, that pill was modalert or if you like to call it Adderall or modafinil 200mg.i took it daily for two weeks and stopped abruptly. The withdrawal symptoms I got were horrendous
  13. Hello SA, SleepyMagee here. I'm a first-time caller, long-time listener, and I've been meaning to do this for such a long time. I'm sure you all know how hard it is to get started, especially when your story is a long and painful one. But I feel like I'm ready. The following will be an account of my history with mental illness and how the medication I was prescribed made a bad situation worse. I'll try and keep it as short as possible, for all our sake. I hope updates and eventually a recovery story will follow. So here goes... In September 2009 a relationship ended. It
  14. I have been on and off different anti-depressants for years. I was on Effexor for many years. (I can't offer specific dates on many things as many holes are there.) I went on a trip in 2015 to Uganda and met a man with horrible trauma. He was being weaned off the antidepressant they had him on for 9 months. I asked if they ever left people on longer and the response was, "No. You have them on it short term and work with them extensively, giving them the tools to overcome. Then bring them off and work alongside them until they are ready to move on." I thought of all the 15 m

    I am so thankful to have found this website. I’ve gotten so much useful information! I began taking 15mg mirtazapine in Feb of 2015 and began the tapering process in Aug of 2018. Prior to Aug, beginning in 2016 I followed my doctors orders and simply discontinued the drug. As you all know I suffered greatly from this. Trusting my doctor and not having done any of my own research, I thought all of the very severe withdrawls were my anxiety. I went cold turkey several times and tapered to 7.5 several times each time getting the same results. I began to do research and discovered
  16. Hi all, I recently completed a taper of Valium over the Feb - Sept 2019 time period via a daily liquid microtaper (sooo glad to be done with this!), but from my siggy, you can see I am also currently on Lexapro and Mirtazapine (both of which I have been on now for around a year). I would like to taper off of both of these (not the same time, but lexapro first, mirtazapine second) over the coming months and am just looking for more information from those who have successfully walked this path before me. If anyone is tapering a benzo, I am an open book regarding my experience and wha

  18. Hi all. Long time lurker, thought I’d finally join in. Age =30, Male. Straight to business: Had what you might call a nervous breakdown after quitting my job and also dropping out of University mid 2016. I was having suicidal thoughts, disordered thinking and I stopped sleeping. - Started on a low dose of Valium for 2 weeks to help sleep. This unfortunately exacerbated my depression, anxiety, insomnia, agitation. - started on Lexapro. Again, made my symptoms worse. Didn’t sleep for a week straight. Yikes. - finally prescribed seroquel 25mg. Took it
  19. I recently discontinued Seroquel 150mg (prescribed for agitated anxiety and insomnia), and now on Trazodone 250mg and Mirtazapine 30mg. I had been on Seroquel since Sept. 2018 . I feel awful - sleeping less, agitated, angry, depressed, don’t want to get out of bed, lack focus and hard to think straight. I feel dumber and want to avoid. Any insights on how long it may last or how to make it easier? I’m concerned that none of the meds have really helped me with anxiety/depression beyond getting some sleep. I am doing therapy, EMDR, exercise and meditation. I feel like a weird version of myself a
  20. Hello everyone, I'm in desperate need of some help and advice. I have been on Amitriptyline for 3 and half years at a dosage of 100mg, this helped me to sleep because of anxiety. Exactly 4 weeks ago I went to see my GP as my anxiety has been increasing. They suggested trying Mirtazapine. So for the first week my Amitriptyline was dropped from 100mg to 50mg, them for the second week it was dropped from 50mg to ZERO. Then I went straight onto 30mg of Mirtazapine. During all this I have had the worst time ever, I have not slept during these 4 weeks, complete insomnia! and
