Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I believe I can help you with your concern
I am so sorry that you have been having these side effects to the medication, I can imagine how distressing this is for you
May I ask did you have any symptoms at all when you were taking 15mg of the Mirtazapine?
Hi. Not really other than feeling tired.
Now I know this may be difficult for you to compare, but if you have ever had the flu before do these symptoms seem similar to you?
Sort of. I feel quite nauseous a lot of the time and hot/cold.
Yeah, that is why I am concerned because these sound like flu-like symptoms and those are serious and infrequent side effects to the medication. I would alert your prescribing physician about this. Most side effects are usually temporary and go away within 2-4 weeks, but this is a severe one and you may have to switch to another medication. Here are a list of the common and rare side effects of the Mirtazapine
Hi, ok, thanks
Is there anything else I can assist you with?
no that's all, thanks
Anytime, I am always happy to help. I hope these side effects go away soon or if they are severe then the switch to another medication will be seamless for you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, so if you ever have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at anytime.
You are most welcome :)
