ive been on mirtazapine after suffering from anxiety and insomnia for 18 months. Tried SSRI's (2 types, but they made me more anxious).
Ive managed to stay on this so far, they have got rid of the anxiety and insomnia on day 1, which is great!.
I have been experiencing other side affects though such as depression and numbness in my face. The appetite hasn't increased as yet (phew), but i have hope for this drug as the sedation seems to be wearing off. If the depression doesnt lift after 6 weeks then i will be coming off them.
I have done counselling and cbt. I have been reading self help books for 18th months, but I have not managed to shift the anxiety and insomnia unless im off work or on this drug. I have also started yoga and meditation. I eat well and excercise regularly. so I dont feel as though I can do any more.
Is anyone experiencing the same side effects?
=> depression effects appetite.
=> depression effects desire and motivation.
iff < depressed
recommend: try to use desire and motivation with exercise.
+> increase in appetite
+> increase mood
+> increase psyhical health
try playing with mycin that will help if help is to lose yourself into nonsense.
