Avatar m tn I am trying to come off my anti-depression medication as I feel that it is doing more harm than good. I have been taking depocote and mirtazapine for about 3 years. I have stopped taking the depocote 5 days ago and feel a bit strange. I am feeling more alive now than I have done for some time, I assume due to the fact that depocote suppresses the highs of manic depression. I need to ask advice as to whether I am doing this the right way.

Avatar f tn even when I went on the mirtazapine. My Dr. prescribed xanax for me and it helped hold me until the mirtazapine started working. I also take 30 mg. at night for depression.... I couldn't tolerate anything - made me agitated...
Avatar f tn I am severely allergic to SSRI's. I don't want to take an MAO Inhibitor because of the dietary restrictions. Is there any medicine I can take for depression other than SSRI's or MAO Inhibitors?
1427534 tn?1283119534 During March, I tired an anti-anxiety medication, clonazepam, and it induced panic attacks and depression within me. Therefore, I started experiencing suicidal ideation. There may be a risk of suicidal behavior with psychotropic medication BUT if you begin to experience that, it is of utmost importance that you contact your doctor right away. My psychiatrist was definitely prepared to help when it happened to me.
Avatar f tn I no longer need antidepressants cause I believe the changes I have made in my life (exercise/eating right/change of friends/supportive family and friends etc) has given me the stability to combat any depressive tendancies I have naturally. I have learned how to better handle depression naturally without medication. I hated all the side effects of the meds and am so happy I no longer need to be on them. I wish you the best of luck with your depression and your weight issues.
Avatar n tn For treating depression there is a drug called mirtazapine (also called Zispin by one company) which having tried many different anti-depressants over the years I have found effective. It also is nowhere near as addictive as some other anti depressants or benzos (valium, xanax and all that crap). I'm not sure if it's available where you live but I can't recomend it highly enough.
Avatar m tn Hello, I have just been prescribed Mirtazapine/Rameron by my doctor yesterday for Anxiety and mild depression does any body have any experience using the medication? I done a bit of research on the Internet and not much information have come up for the benefits it would have on anxiety just mostly depression. Any help would be great.
Avatar m tn Effects of sudden cessation of treatment with mirtazapine may include depression, anxiety, panic attacks, vertigo, restlessness, irritability, decreased appetite or anorexia, insomnia, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, flu-like symptoms such as allergies or pruritus, headache or migraine, and sometimes hypomania or mania.
Business woman2 I started taking the anti-depressant medication Viibryd in October 2012. Since then (5 months) I have gained almost 30 pounds. The medicine is the only thing in my life that has changed. I am wondering if anyone else is using this med and noticed weight gain as a side effect?? It's discouraging because I've tried so many depression meds and this is the first one that I feel like actually works... but the weight gain makes me depressed all over again so it's a trade off...
Avatar f tn (1) Lexapro went generic and I started the generic and, (2) my patch was increased from 12 to 25. I can't think clearly I'm instantly angry. I have a very short fuse. I cry over everything and nothing. I've looked at the drug interactions and it seems they ALL have them (with each other). I cannot survive this depression but cannot survive the pain either. I am working with my whole medical entourage but wanted to see if anyone else is in a similar boat and has advice.
Avatar m tn I am currently taking 10mg of buspirone 2x day and 15mg of mirtazapine for major depression and generalized anxiety. I have been feeling constantly tired, apathetic and despondent. My psychiatrist prescribed a starting dose of sertraline of 50mg/day. Since starting the sertraline again i have been suffering from physiological anxiety symptoms such as a tight throat, lump in throat, trouble swallowing and breathing, etc.
2110259 tn?1335107972 ) So the only medication I am currently taking is anti-depressants, which is where my question begins… (Sorry for the lengthy intro!) I have been taking venlafaxine for over a year and the dosage has steadily been increased, but my psychiatrist recently wanted to try adding an additional anti-depressant instead of increasing the dose further. For 3 months, I was taking 300mg venlafaxine + 300mg bupropion.
2206935 tn?1373638605 My gp says its all depression but mostly severe anxiety im taking mirtazapine and i feel down its been a week i rlly need help im stuck home feeling miserable
Avatar n tn I have just been put on seroquel starting at 50 mg and increasing every three days until 150mg at night. I have also been put on Mirtazapine 30mg which i have increased over the same time. I have also just withdrawn after a week tapering it off. I still feel the electric shocks and muscle aches from the withdrawal of my previous antidepressant (paroxetine) and I started getting a pounding heartfrom the seroquel.
450928 tn?1216894271 I have Major Depression and Agoraphobia. I recently had to stop Welbutrin SR due to SE. In light of my history of poor reactions to many ADs, my doctor is insisting that I take either Lithium or Lactimil. I did well on Nardil but became allergic after stopping then restarting when I became depressed again.
Avatar n tn that helps alot thanks man, u seem to know what im going through which helps alot, i have a question though that could explain something. My doctor gave me Mirtazapine to help with my anxiety, mirtazapine being an anti depressent. Could the mirtazapine actually be making me feel this way. ive read that anti depressents can do this especially this one rameron. i mean if my chemicals arent imbalanced in the first place wouldnt taking a drug that messes with them be a bad idea?
1166402 tn?1303847056 Most antidepressants can give you memory trouble etc but mirtazapine can improve memory. Instead of switching medication right now I would try to add Wellbutrin to take in the morning. It's action on dopamine and norepinephrine might be the only thing you need more and especially since mirtazapine is sedative and Wellbutrin is stimulating. Taking both medications will take care of all your monoamines which are thought to contribute to depression. I would not recommend Effexor.
Avatar m tn i'm posting a question asking for your medical advice as i've suffered from long term depression since i was 18 as i'm now 38 going through various medication regimes throughout that time. I've previously been on mostly SSRI's ie prozac and seroxat, with in addition dosuphin and amtitrypline. Prozac and seroxat worked well with me for some time until they "pooped out" on me.

Avatar f tn My dr. gave samples of Lexapro 10mg to try out for anxiety/possible depression. I took my first dose this morning before work and discovered it's not a day time med, I became very tired, groggy and sleepy. I am currently taking ambien 10mg every night for sleep. should I take another lexapro tonight? I can't take it before work? It is safe to take them both at the same time? Or start over tomorrow night? Im new to the anxity/depression meds............
Avatar n tn Hello. I have been on Mirtazapine now for over 5 years. I was put on this medication by The Bridge Centre/ Mental Health service. I no longer go there which is not to my liking. I take 45 milligrames on Mirtazapine at night as it's suppsost to helpwith sleep which for me at the moment it very poor. I have poor concerntration, I cant get intersted in anything like watching TV , reading or listening to music.
