I have recently experienced an extreme anxiety attack, and was put onto this medication Avanza Mirtazapine.
My GP told me it helps me to sleep, helps with coping substances in my brain, and also acts as an anti-depressant.
I really don't know if I want to be taking this med if I can help it... Sometimes I feel as though I am getting weird side-effects.. such as:
Dizzy, light headed, racing heart, panicky and racing thoughts.
I know these symptoms are also the same as anxiety, but it seems to bring it on... Has anyone been on this med, and if so, experienced anything similar?
I'm going to talk to my GP next appointment... but he is pretty firm about
me taking them. I really want other opinions from people who have taken it, if possible..
