Melaan: Is it possible to stabilise after an updose for the 2nd time? I still feel bad ...

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

This is my first post ūüėä

 

Two days ago I went from 7mg back to 7,5mg after 24 days of bad WD. After two days I still feel much anxiety and a burning brain. In the morning I’ve got sweaty feet and palpitations. Will this go away? I want some relief after those weeks with WD. 

 

Thank you very much for your time!

 

Enjoy your day

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

In March I decided to quit. The GP told me I could just stop. NOT! I reinstated after two weeks. After 6 days I started a slow taper, but not slow enough...

Hello, @Melaan

 

Did you only reinstate 7.5mg a few days ago? Have you felt any improvement since you reinstated?

Hello @Altostrata,

 

Thank you for the warning. I introduced myself, hope I did it right ūüėä

 

Yes, I do feel better. Yesterday I was very tired, think because my body was relaxing a bit from the high anxiety the days before. Hope this will comtinue. I will stay on 7,5 for a couple of months and than try again to taper.

Thank you for asking.


Wednesday I felt OK, especially very tired, but less anxiety. Yesterday I felt more anxiety and had l a burning head again. Also a weird sensation in my muscles in my right arm. But I think the feeling was not as heavy as om Tuesday.

 

Today I woke up again with sweaty feet and some palpitations. Also my head feels like it’s burning a bit, hope thing will ease down.

 
I also have Xanax in case I can’t take it anymore, but trying to make it through the day.

Try not to take Xanax, it can cause more problems.

 

Please keep notes about how you feel each day before and after you take mirtazapine. It will take up to a couple of weeks for the 7.5mg to take full effect. Your withdrawal symptoms may come and go, but should gradually become less intense. If you feel anything unusual, please let us know.

Hi @Altostrata 

 

I try not to take Xanax, till now I can handle it. The symptoms are still there, but think they are less intense. I always write down how I feel. Did it at the beginning of my burnout, November, so can see how things going. 
 

A few weeks before I‚Äôm stabilized? Is that for about a month? Or even more? And stabilized means that‚Äôs I‚Äôm waking up without sweaty feet and anxiety? And feel als ‚Äėme‚Äô during the whole day?¬†
 

Thank you so much for your help! I really appreciate it!

Why can Xanax make thing more worse? If you take it for example 2 times per week?

I don't know how long it will take for you to stabilize. We expect very gradual improvement. Please let us know how you're doing.

 

Taking Xanax or any benzo can lead to taking more of it. If you take it too often, you may become dependent and have additional symptoms such as interdose withdrawal symptoms or rebound insomnia. If you absolutely have to take it, it should be very occasionally.

 

It's best to avoid taking a benzo altogether, they're more trouble than they're worth, and a gigantic headache for the staff here.

@Altostrata Hi,

I had a few OK days. Yesterday I was nauseous again and today I have much brainfog, a burning pressure in/on my head. 
 

is this something to worry about? I didn’t take any benzo. 


thank you!

Hello @Altostrata,

 

I know about the waves and windows. But I did an updose 23 days/3,5 weeks ago from 7 to 7,5 (after holding on 7mg for 23 days). 

Today is still very bad. Bad sleep, morning anxiety, palpitations a buzzing and burning head, no appetite. Do I have an adverse reaction? Maybe I take a Xanax this evening so I can get some relief and a good sleep. 

 

I hope thing will improve, I cant take it much longer...

 

Thank you very much again.

Do you have periods when you feel better and when you feel worse?

 

Do you feel better now than when you did in mid-April?

@Altostratasorry! I didnt saw your reaction. Hope you are OK. 


I think in June things got a bit better. 


Last Wednesday, 7 days ago, I went front 7,5 to 7,2. After 5 days the WD hit again. I went up to 7,5, bc I do not want the same situation as in April and May. Now again try to stabilise. 
 

The GP thinks maybe I’ve got oppositional tolerance. So I have to go sloooooowwwwwer. Maybe by 0,1mg. 
 

I’m also recovering ftom a burn-out, so my CNS is maybe not ready yet for tapering. Maybe I have to stay on it forever. 
 

Best wishes!

That is very sensitive to mirtazapine reductions. This is the first reduction you've made since April 25?

Do you mean you have been feeling better since June?

 

I don't know what "oppositional tolerance" has to do with it, but it's clear you're very sensitive to mirtazapine dosage reductions at this dosage. Are you taking any other drugs?

@Altostratano I don’t use other drugs. Maybe its because I’m recovering from a burn-out? My CNS was/is affected. When I got sick, I had the same symptoms (agitated, sweating, palpitations etc). I think I must be better and than give it another try? 
 

its hard to tell when I felt stabilised, because I also got the symptoms from my recovering from a burn-out.

What do you mean by a "burn-out"?

 

Have you accidentally forgotten any mirtazapine doses?

@Altostratain Holland a burn-out is¬†a stress related illness. My CNS was ‚Äėdamaged‚Äô. Maybe you call it adrenaline fatigue?¬†

I could not sleep and eat, my whole system was 24/7 full of adrenaline. Same sort of symptoms when you quit an AD. 
 

i did not miss any dose and take my pill every day at 7:30.

When did this "burn-out" occur? What drugs were you taking then? What were your sleep habits?

@Altostratathat was last year Oct 2020. All of a sudden my sleep was bad, could not eat and woke up shaking. At the beginnen I got Oxazepam, Seresta? For max 2 weeks. In Dec my burn-out got worse. I had lost 13kg. I got Xanax for 10 days. After that my sleep didnt improve. So the Doc gave me Mirt 15mg, but I only took 7,5mg. 
 

i did 2 attempts to quit, but things got worse and I became more ill. So stayed on it. At the end of Sept my burn-out got a bit better, so I wanted to give it another try. Bad idea. Feeling sick for 5 days, today is very bad. Hope things get better soon. Maybe I must stay on it forever.

What was going on in Oct 2020 that might have caused this? An emotional upset? Had you taken a benzo or other drug? Perhaps a recreational drug? Alcohol?

 

From your history, which does not include the earlier benzos, you have been changing your mirtazepine dosage frequently throughout 2021. It may help a lot to let your nervous system settle down on a consistent dose of mirtazapine for some months, then taper off very gradually.

@AltostrataI had a more than fulltime job, 2 studies, very active in church, 3 children and a husbund. Too much to handle. I didnt saw it coming. My system broke down. Didnt drank alcohol. Was in very good healt and also had a good diet. I ran 2 times a week. 
Nobody was surprised, cause I was overactive. Never going back to all those things. 
 

The Doc told me juist quit Mirt. That went wrong. I did a second attempt. After that I was on the same dose for almost 6 months. But now I will stay on it for very long. Too afraid.

@Altostratathank you very much. Sleeping was OK. But last night I was too restless. I fell asleep around 24 o’clock. I woke up at 3:30 with palpitations. Now I am awake (3:51). I think it will last a few months before my system settles down. I’m afraid I must face it again, but It is what it is. Hope things will improve sooner.

@Altostrata¬† since Saturday afternoon things are more manageable. My appetite is back. I still wake up with morning anxiety and anxiety throughout the day, but I had that already by recovering from my burn-out. Maybe things became¬†a bit more sensitive, cause I gave my CNS a boost ūüėä

 

First I need to recover from my burn-out. That may take a while. And when I feel ready, I will give it another try. Maybe by -0,1mg per month, I don’t care. Fingers crossed…

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Good to hear, @Melaan Sometimes if people take a vacation from drug changes for a good while, they find resuming tapering to be much easier.
