My gp is taking me off mirtazapine as it’s not working as an antidepressant. Slightly concerned that he said I should be able to come off it in a week by reducing my dose by 15 mg everything couple of days. I’ve been on 45 mg dose for around 5 months. First night tonight on 30mg. It’s going to be difficult to work out what’s a symptom of coming off them and just a normal bad night. At the moment just can’t sleep! My previous side effects have been what I can only describe as electric shocks, sometimes going through my entire body or sometimes like a speed camera going off in my head. I’m not looking forward to the next few days. Has anyone else ever tried to come off these?
