Mirtazapine

I was put on Mirtazapine 15mg for 4 dys , then up to 30mg , 9wks ago. I was extremely anxious & depressed & also was only sleeping 2hrs a night. I slept soundly after 45mins of taking one , and the anxiety was far less. I was told they are a tablet that takes longer than others to get into the system proberly 8wksfor depression so to persivere with them.. I am not at all happy with the weight gain issue attacted to them , but was told if you eat healthy 3 times a day & resist the urges you may get , and eat fruit , you will not put on weight , as of yet I am O.k. but I do feel bloated ,and my tummy looks it..

MIRTAZAPINE Rxn

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... ...

Mirtazapine 15 Mg

WHAT IS THE PROPER WAY TO GET OFF mirtazapine 15 mg after taking it for 3 weeks? ## Hi Ben, This is just my opinion, but usually for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them, if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. In addition to that, I'd also suggest making yourself a tapering schedule on a calendar to track your progress and keep you on the right path to complete your goal within a specific time frame. Without a way to track your progress, tapering can sometimes be much more difficult than it needs to be. I hope this advice helps! ## Thanks. Your idea is what I w... ...

mirtazapine 45mg

Im on quetiapine MR 700mgs a day i also take sertraline 100mgs a day , tramadol 200mgs daily , depakote 1000mgs daily, and zolpidem 10mgs at night , my doctor is thinking about putting me on mirtazapine 45mgs daily i wanted to know if this is safe with all my other meds i have mentioned ? ## Many of the medications you've listed can affect serotonin levels, so adding another one creates the risk of your developing serotonin syndrome, which can be dangerous. It's not that they can't be combined, but it must be done very carefully, with the doses taken under careful consideration and the patient being regularly monitored. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Mirtazapine as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight gain. Are you seei... ...

Cats & Mirtazapine

Our 13 year old Maine Coon mix is in the last stages of renal failure. We didn't know anything was wrong until about a month ago when she stopped eating. It's been up and down ever since her diagnosis. Our vet prescribed Mirtazapine but, after reading the many negative comments, we put off giving it to her as long as we could. We finally had to because the effects of not eating in cats are liver shutdown and death. She's had no serious adverse reaction to Mirtazapine, and it has definitely helped her appetite. It is buying her a little more quality time with us. I certainly wouldn't use or give this drug lightly, but as some posters have noted, in the end it's a risk v.s benefit judgment call. ## I am very sorry to read of what you are going through. I am not very kn... ...

Using Mirtazapine

Hi I have been taking Mirtazapine 15mg for one week. I am either crazy angry or crying, my head won't stop thinking about everything I need to get done, I can't remember where I have put things or what I was thinking about, I feel very nervous & agitated, I cannot sit down & relax but on the upside I'm sleeping well.... Help!! ## Hello, Adele! How are you doing? Has there been any change? That can happen, when you first start taking this type of medication, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. However, things usually improve after about 3 to 4 weeks, once your body gets used to the medication.

orangeish round pill with 212 on one side and nothing on the other. Looks different than the mirtazapine pills we got last month. Those were a brownish color and oval. ## I cannot find any pills that are orange and round, with just a 212 on them listed in either of the prescription drug databases that I use. The only suggestion I have is to go back and ask your pharmacy to double check and make sure they gave you the correct pills. ...

mirtazapine to paxil

Starting Paxil from Mirtazapine, all the hype of Mirtazapine is wrong. It works for about 3 weeks, then pooooooph done. Has anyone tapered to Paxil from Mirtazapine? IF SO, WAS IT PAINLESS OR POINTLESS? ## Not every medication works for everyone that tries it. I am sorry the Mirtazapine didn't work well for you, but there are many people that do experience good results with it. Paxil always worked well for my ex-husband, though I've not taken it myself. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings, and weight changes. Can anyone that's switched from one to the other chime in with their experiences? ...

CRYING AND MIRTAZAPINE

I've been on Mirtazapine for 4 weeks and don't feel any better, I can't stop crying and have dark thoughts. Has anybody else experienced this? Please help me. ## Mirtazapine is a tricyclic antidepressant and if it is not helping after 4 weeks of use, you may need a higher dosage or it might not be the right medication to help you.

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... ...

DO NOT TAKE MIRTAZAPINE

I was put on mirtazapine due to weight loss and am coming off it. IT is a difficult drug to come off and I am going through hell. They do not tell you what will happen if you decide to want to come off them because in their eyes you are not supposed to come off. so be wary before taking them I wish I had not ## I'm sorry about the problems you are experiencing. However, it is well known that our bodies will get used to anything that we ingest on a regular basis, for a long period of time and will react if such a substance is suddenly withdrawn. How are you stopping it? Have you done a gradual taper? That is usually the best way to do so, to prevent the worst of the withdrawal/rebound effects. You can learn more Mirtazapine details here. Sometimes, a doctor will have you gradually lo... ...

Mirtazapine help please

Hi all, recently I've been given mirtazapine to help me sleep. I also take 40mg citalopram, plus 7.5mg zopiclone, plus 5mg diazepam. My mood swings have changed. I have found I'm being nasty towards my partner who is very caring and supportive but I know I will lose her forever if things don't change. Should I stop taking all this s*** or do I battle on? Please help. {edited for privacy}. ## Hello, Nick! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you're experiencing. You actually shouldn't be taking both the Citalopram and Mirtazapine, because both can increase serotonin levels, which could cause you to develop serotonin syndrome and that can be fatal, as reported by the FDA. If the Zopiclone isn't helping you sleep, as it should, then you may need to stop... ...
