Dangers of mirtazapine

It seems to me that Mirtazapine is a potentially dangerous drug with little information known about it. My veterinarian prescribed this drug in small quantities for my cat as an appetite stimulant, so I began reading articles on the drug and its effects. Although it is supposed to be used as an antidepressant for humans, it has a wide reputation for causing suicidal tendencies in children and young adults. It causes weight gain (the side effect my vet was looking for in my cat's case). It also can cause feelings of depression, and wooziness. I spoke with a nurse who took it and she said the effects of sluggishness and dizziness lasted 2 to 3 days. It can also cause nausea and headaches. It seems to me that these side effects are anything but what a person who is already depressed sh...

False Positive test For Benzo Taking Mirtazapine

I have had 3 drug tests all coming back positive for benzo and because of this my child has been removed from my care. I am taking mirtazapine but they are adamant that this would not cause it and that I am taking something else.

Mirtazapine causing anxiety/agitation?

I have been taking 15mg of Mirtazapine for three weeks. This was prescribed after suffering from insomnia and anxiety, with moderate to severe depression, for three months following complete withdrawal from the SSRI Citalopram (which I did very gradually, over three before this months as I thought I was stable enough to stand on my own two feet). My sleep improved immediately and I started to have some better days over the first two weeks. I know recovery should take time, and that the Mirtazapine takes at least 4 weeks to show its beneficial effects. On that basis, by the end of the second week I was feeling in a pretty good frame of mind and quite optimistic that I had finally turned a corner out of my anxiety. This third week has been a real disappointment though. My anxiety has got ...

Mirtazapine (remeron) - help me understand how it works!

Hello, I need help to understand how this antidepressant works for anxiety. I am suffering from severe anxiety (suspected hyperadrenergic postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome - hyper pots) which causes my heart rate to increase by 30-50 beats per minute upon standing, along with a blood pressure increase, and so it's hard for me to even stand because of heart palpitations, fatigue, dizziness, etc; and so i lay in my bed for 22-23 hours daily for 8 months, my muscles are GONE, & I am only existing. My medicine history story in a few sentences: After more than several heart tests a year ago, they found nothing except mentioned sinus tachycardia episodes and high blood pressure when anxious. For example it was 170/90 with the heart rate of 120 just sitting and talking to the c...

mirtazapine drug test

hi to all ive been on mirtazapine for a few months now and i had a drug test a few week ago and its came back positive for amphetamins i dont do drugs except what my doctor gives me im tryin to find any info on internet but no luck thanx for any replies ## Mirtazapine is a tetracyclic antidepressant, so it shouldn't show up on a drug test as anything. I also did some research with our resources, that contain various reports on what medications have shown false positives for certain things and Mirtazapine has not been shown to give a positive test for anything. Where you taking anything else at the time? Even if it was an over the counter product, please post back and let us know, so I can check for you. ## I take 45mg Avanza on prescription before bedtime each day. I also failed a d...

pain in my hip bones, knee bones and shoulder bones after taking mirtazapine

Hi, iv only been taking 15mg Mirtazapine for a week and doubled the dose to 30mg last night. It had helped me sleep up until i doubled the dose. Although i wanted to sleep i had terrible aching in my hip,knee and shoulder bones. I am still aching today but not as bad. I may think its my bones andit may even be muscular but the pain was so intence i just could not sleep. I have been experiencing muscle twitching whilst taking the 15mg but that was mild, this was unbearable. Has any one else experienced this please? Thanks ## That type of aching may be the sign of a serious side effect, so you should contact your doctor about it. Learn more Mirtazapine details here. It might be that it's just not the right medication for you and you may need to try something else. Have you looked into...

My physician placed me on a 15mg dose of Mirtazapine beginning with just a 'half' dose for the 1st week. I tried this dosage for 2 nights and ended up having 'heigthened' throbbing and 'restless-like' syndrome of my entire body-especially the right side. I have Fibromyalgia, Renauds' syndrome and have suffered from years of sleep problems. I have been on varying doses of Elavil over the last 12 yrs but this no longer helps. I do suffer from mild depression, mostly due to work stresses but I have been on a medical leave since July 11'05 post rotator cuff surgery. Tonight I will be trying Ambien- 5mg dose. The claim that Mirtazapine is used to treat 'tremors' is contradictory in my case-seemed like it was causing mild tremor-like throbbing with my l...

Can Urbanol or Mirtazapine make you gain weight?

I'm currently on Urbanol 10mg and Mirtazapine 30mg. I gained a lot of weight within 3 weeks. Can it be the Urbanol or the Mirtazapine or both? Plz help. ## I am also on Mirtazapine for 3 months now. It's widely known that weight gain is a side-effect of this drug as it stimulates the appetite and makes you eat more. I have also gained weight, something which is normally difficult for me. ## Giarno is correct, weight gain is a listed side effect of Mirtazapine, both with short and long-term use. Rapid weight gain, such as what you've experienced has also been a common complaint. Other side effects may include drowsiness, dry mouth, and headache. Have you continued to gain?

Mirtazapine Drug Information

Does Mirtazapine continue to cause drowsyness as long as it is taken, or does that (side) effect wear off in time? If so, how long does it take to wear off? ## Ive been on it for two years, you will def. feel drowsy when you wake up it will take at least and hour or two to wear off and It also seems to wear off once you keep yourself busy ## I have been on Mirtazapine for 9 months now - 15mg at night. I take it around 9:30 pm, but always feel groggy in the morning. True - if you just get up and get going, it will wear off fairly quickly. It has helped me sleep thru the night and gain back weight that I had lost. I feel bloated most of the time, even when I am at my normal weight. ## I've been on Mylan-Mirtazapine for the last year. At the start, my doctor prescribed 30mg per day. Th...

Long term effects of Mirtazapine

## I started taking 15 mg of Mirtazapine a month ago and for anxiety, feelings of fear and worry and depression. I’m still feeling some worry and fear. I’m having some bad dreams and very over anxious. I’m having headaches and constipation. These dreams are the worst. Do these side effects get less powerful over time? ## Many people on Mirtazapine report a worsening of their symptoms of anxiety and depression in the early weeks of starting Mirtazapine (same as many other anti-depressants). It can take several weeks for the drug to begin working and then symptoms improve. Mirtazapine usually works faster than newer SSRI anti-depressants (many people report improvements between 2-5 weeks). However some people may need their dosage adjusting to get the full benefit. Docto...

Mirtazapine Sleeping and side effects

Hi all. Great reading your posts. I am on Mirtazapine for the second time. Happy new year by The way. Firstly my psychiatrist put me on 30mg. It knocked me out every time. I had vivid abnormal dreams, lucid which I love. Nevertheless I had the munchies all the time coupled with lethargy, fuzziness and mild hallucinations. I kept going but was getting chubbier by the week. So i decided to ween myself of them feeling that my depression and residual psychosis from previous street drug abuse had resided or gone altogether. 3 weeks off them I was back in a dark gloomy and aggressive place my mood was irrational my thoughts racing always looking for someway to escape myself. 2 months later I went back on them and at first I felt like they were not working so the doc uped them from 15 to 30mg....

cispin for depression

## What is Cispin? ## Cispin is a common misspelling for the antidepressant called Zispin SolTab. Active Ingredient: Mirtazapine Method of Administration: Orodispersible (e.g. Tablet is placed in the mouth where it rapidly disperses in saliva so that it can be easily swallowed). Indication: According to medlineplus.gov, Mirtazapine is a prescription antidepressant drug that works by increasing certain types of activity in the brain to maintain mental balance. Controversy: Studies indicate that it may take up to several weeks or longer for you to feel the full benefit of Mirtazapine. Hope this helps! ## In my experience, all treatments need to be tailored to each individual. It is almost useless to say "Try this, it worked for me!" When I was first diagnosed with depression, I wa...

Mirtazapine 15mg Overdose Effects & Safety

My 24 year old overdosed on paracetamol and aspirin last week. She took over 40 tablets. After being released from hospital and seeing her local GP she has been given 14 day supply of this drug. I am concerned to allow her to keep all the tablets. ## Hi, I had overdosed on 15mg mirtazapines and had the Dr's check me over about 3 days later. Do you think all is ok? ## This is an antidepressant that is used to treat various mental health conditions. If you are concerned, it might be best for you to keep the tablets and dispense one to her each day, for her own safety, that is often what is done in mental health units, when someone is suicidal and they want to be cautious. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, mood swings, headache, ...

coming off mirtazapine 15mg

I started on 15mg mirtazapine 7 weeks ago and titrated up after 4 weeks to 30mg for 1 week; then back down to 15mg for the last week. I want off this awful medication. I feel completely spaced out all the time but am aware withdrawal is horrendous. I have been really agitated the past 48 hrs so I want to limit withdrawal symptoms as much as possible. I was going through a bad divorce, serious debts and being staked for 9 months by my ex husband of 26 years. I have had extensive counselling and am mentally in a much better place so I want to come off this poison ASAP safely. Thank you for your reply. ## Hello, Beth! How are you? Overall, divorces always suck, even if we have to do them for own good, I dealt with one back in 2009 and my new husband had to deal with one back in 2015, so I ...

Mirtazapine: strange back pain

Hello, I am taking 30mg daily before going to bed (male, 43 yo). I have started with a very low dosage of 7.5mg and over the course of about 1.5 months I reached the current level. I experienced clear drowsiness (which is a good as I was having trouble sleeping) and dry mouth from the beginning. While the effect of drowsiness right after taking the pill persists, the dry mouth seems to be mostly reduced (80% from the top at the beginning). The reason why I'm writing is a strange back pain that started about 6-7 weeks ago. Here is why I find it strange and why I would like to hear from others if they experienced it like this: 1. I wake up every morning with acute back pain over all my back (bottom to below the neck) 2. Due to the pain I can hardly move in bed when I wake up. Often it...

Mylan Mirtazapine does not work

Has any one else experienced this? I had to start using the Mylan version of Remeron / Mirtazapine and I now get sever leg cramps, headaches and the return of my depression. It’s as though it has NO active ingredient in it. The name brand Remeron puts me to sleep about 15 min after taking it, but the Mylan generic for of Remeron/Mirtazapine does not. I stay awake for hours. I can not afford the name brand remeron at $187.00 a month but I am to afraid if I try to use the Mylan version again the worse will happen. I am kind of between a rock and a hard place over this. But I have switched back and fourth enough times now that I know the Mylan version does not work. I get this from Walgreen’s in IL and I am looking for similar problems. Walgreen’s tell me they will not ca...
