wanttobefree: Seroquel / quetiapine and Remeron / mirtazapine

Recommended Posts


Hi there. I have been withdrawing from 800mg of seroquel for about three years now. I am down to 6.25mg. I also want to withdraw from mirtazipine 45mg. I don’t know a lot about how to withdraw from mirtazipine but I know that every other time I have tried to get off antidepressants the withdrawals have been pure hell on Earth. I will be wise this time. I don’t care if it takes me a few years. I will get off this medication. I was put on antidepressants and seroquel when I was 25. I am now 40. I’ve had enough of these medications. They did not help me and I feel they robbed me of my best years of life. I was diagnosed with anxiety disorders. Not schizophrenia. Thanks for reading.

Hi wanttobefree and welcome to SA,


We need to know more about your drug history.  Please create your drug signature.  We need details of ALL drugs.  For the last 2 years we need details (drug name, dose, date when you changed the dose, decrease/increase) and for anything older just a summary.


Q:  How are you measuring your dose of seroquel?


Once we have more information we will be better able to offer suggestions.


This is your own Introduction topic which is the place to ask questions about your own situation and where you can journal your progress.
