Quick question! Currently I am taking Mirtazapine (15mg) daily, but I want to quit because it isn't helping my mood or symptoms. The throat gurgling with gas (like when I bend over sometimes) is especially worse now. Out of curiousity I was wondering if antidepressants could cause GI symptoms like more burping or gas escaping up the throat?

I was put on an antidepressent recently and yes, it can cause a variety of GI symptoms. Mine was not gas, but more of a burning, stomach upset, but it is a very common side effect.
I did not take it very long, needless to say.

Remeron side effects:
 
Belching - Noisy release of gas from the stomach through the mouth; a burp. Dyspepsia/Indigestion. The discomfort one may experience after eating. It can be heartburn, gas, nausea, a bellyache or bloating.
 
You answer is yes in fact this drug has more than 100 side effects..............

Excellent, thank you both for the helpful answers. Time to get off the drugs, slowly but surely!

Uh oh, I just realised something important. I'm taking another Peptest but I just realised on my last sample collection - as well as this current one - I was under the effects of an antidepressant..! Could they cause invalid results?
