I have been through a myriad of compulsions and social 'butterflies'. my family Dr put me on this medication but it was NOT for depression.
The dose may be increased in 15-mg increments every one or two weeks as needed until symptoms of depression or anxiety resolve. Mirtazapine may cause weight gain and may increase cholesterol levels and should be used carefully in overweight individuals and those with high cholesterol levels.No water is needed when taking the Sol Tabs, since these tablets disintegrate in saliva and are not swallowed whole.Mirtazapine is usually thought of as an antidepressant, or a drug that alleviates symptoms of depression.In fact, there should be a lapse of at least 14 days between taking an MAOI and mirtazapine. Finally had to take 2 Diazapam 5mg to calm down and get back into bed and sleep.Because mirtazapine may cause drowsiness, it should be used carefully with other medications that also make people prone to sleepiness, such as antidepressants, antipsychotics, antihistamines, anti-anxiety agents, and alcohol. Slept almost the whole next day and still felt lethargic the following day.More than 50% of individuals using mirtazapine report feeling sleepier than normal and 7% feel dizzy.As a result, people taking mirtazapine should not participate in activities that require mental alertness—like driving— until they know how the drug will affect them. I have taken my first dose 15mg last night at 11.30pm and found it impossible to wake up this morning, I am only just starting to function now and even that is extremely slowly...if this doesnt then i will prob have to go back into hospital... i am a keen runner and i go for like an hour every day... The dreams have changed over the years but they have the same effect on me.My anxieties have been a part of my life since I was about 9 years old.Mirtazapine may increase the tendency for seizures .As a result, it should be used carefully in people with epilepsy or other seizure disorders. It should be used carefully in people with a history of mania.
