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.

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?
