Shellbelle: Muscle aches, heel pain, itching, skin sensitivity


Recommended Posts

Muscle aches, heel pain, itching, skin hypersensitive

Could all of the above be a WD symptom from mirtazapine/sertraline even 5 months after last tablet??? Driving me crazy!

Hi Shellbelle and welcome to SA,


It is very possible that what you are experiencing are withdrawal symptoms.


Dr Joseph Glenmullen's WD Symptoms Checklist


One Theory of Antidepressant Withdrawal Syndrome

What is Withdrawal Syndrome?


Withdrawal Symptoms - Delayed Onset

We need additional information about how you stopped your drug.


We ask all members to create a drug signature.  This appears below every post you make.  Please update it whenever you make a change.  This is the preferred format which makes it easier for us to see your drug history at a glance:


A request: Would you summarize your history in a signature - ALL drugs, doses, dates, and discontinuations & reinstatements, in the last 12-24 months particularly?

  • Please leave out symptoms and diagnoses.
  • A list is easier to understand than one or multiple paragraphs. 
  • Any drugs prior to 24 months ago can just be listed with start and stop years.
  • Please use actual dates or approximate dates (mid-June, Late October) rather than relative time frames (last week, 3 months ago)
  • Spell out months, e.g. "October" or "Oct."; 9/1/2016 can be interpreted as Jan. 9, 2016 or Sept. 1, 2016.
  • Link to Account Settings – Create or Edit a signature.
