Hi there,

 

I finally finished my Mirtazipine taper a week ago. Now I have very bad itchy skin and eyes. My eyes have been bad for about two months but the itchy skin started about 4 days ago.

 

Any advice please.

Xanax 2mg per day - 10% per month  - finished taper June 2020

Quetipine 100mg per day 10% per month  - finished taper March 2021

Started to taper Mirtazipine 15mg per day 10% per month -started April 2021

Finished taper of 1.5mg approx( cutting with blade) on April 27th 2022. That is I jumped off at 1.5mg.

Hi! I also had a lot of itching on my body. Especially after showering. My back, chest, face, hand and legs itched a lot. My advice is to try to moisturize your skin with creams after showering and whenever you feel itchy. It helped me, but it's not a cure. Over time, this itchy symptom will pass. I don't have the exact time, but it took about 2-3 months. Remember that each case is unique, it can get better with you.

Regarding the eyes, I had a little itching, but mainly, dryness.  I used saline and using a lubricating eye drops also helps.

Thanks so much Warrior for getting back to me. I honestly thought I got away it!! i.e. I tried coming off Mirt before  - much quicker and had the itchiness and insomnia. Great to see you are doing so well.

 

Thanks again,

Hi, @onetime! You're welcome! I had a lot of bad symptoms and I'm still having it, I really hope I'm really free of it, but I'm worried about some symptoms that might not go away. If you feel anything else, I think I can help you, I've been through so much coming off Mirtazapine. How long have you used mirtazapine? And what were the doses?

I was on Mirt from 2018 at 15mg. Also Quetipine and Xanax. I am off everything now and never going back. Experiencing the windows and waves and looking forward to stabilisation and an end to the drug madness!

Exactly, get out of the madness of these drugs. They make life hell. It's great that you're getting out of them all! It's really great to get out of them and that's the best thought to have! Congratulations!
