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 most prominent is avoiding being around other people. I have had serious muscle contractions (dislocated shoulder a several occassions, stress marks on bones and pulled spine board straight) and a bad burning sensation in left arm shoulder and entire back. My mouth felt like my dentist shot it full of novicane.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.Mirtazapine is broken down by the liver and eliminated from the body mostly by the kidneys. The recommended initial dose of mirtazapine in 15 mg taken at bedtime. Elderly people or those with liver or kidney disease should use mirtazapine carefully, since they may be more sensitive to some of the drug's side effects.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.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 is not recommended in pregnant or breast-feeding women. Louis, MO: Facts and Comparisons; Philadelphia: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2002. I have a strnage tingling in my mouth and lips almost as though a local injection were wearing off from the dentist. I really dont feel right at all :-(Dear Hazel, My psychiatrist put me on 7.5 mg of Mirtazapine which obviously is less than what you are taking but it took a few days to over come the side effects which involved me feeling very dizzy and sleepy. I am 35 yrs old and have NEVER struggled with my weight or had a weight issue.Less common adverse effects include weakness and muscle aches, flu-like symptoms, low blood-cell counts, high cholesterol, back pain, chest pain, rapid heartbeats, dry mouth, constipation, water retention, difficulty sleeping, nightmares, abnormal thoughts, vision disturbances, ringing in the ears, abnormal taste in the mouth, tremor, confusion, upset stomach, and increased urination. Haven't had time to assess for anxiety but really bizarre reactions.Use of mirtazapine with antidepressants referred to as monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) such as Parnate ( tranylcypromine ) and Nardil ( phenelzine ), is strongly prohibited due to the potential for high fever, muscle stiffness, sudden muscle spasms, rapid changes in heart rate and blood pressure, and the possibility of death. Feeling of 'swirling' in the head, hot, very uncomfortable, vivid strange dreams, a feeling like all my internals are expanding and swelling! I read that there's no chance of serotonin poisoning as there is with some anti's so I'll try again tonight and cut dose to 7.5. Took my first dose of mirtazamine 15mg last week at around 10.30pm, by 11pm could hardly stand up or keep my eyes open, slept soundly 'til about 1.30am, had to get up as I couldn't keep still, all my nerves seemed alive, tried to relax but it was impossible to sit still, legs jigging, twitching sensation,/skin crawling, all over.Mirtazapine may alter liver function and should be used cautiously by those with a history of liver disease.If abdominal pain, yellowing of the skin or eyes, darkening of urine, or itching occurs, a health care provider should be notified immediately.
