I was going to start back on it but unlike before now I am working AND going to school. Im going to school early in the morning and working in the evenings still, which before I was only working in the evenings. Well as you know you have to take it at night and when you are first getting used to it the next morning you could sleep all day... before I could do that now I cant. I get like no sleep nowadays because I have two kids as well. I MISS MIRTAZAPINE. I seriously felt a difference in anxiety the next day I was so happy, anxiety free, could drink my coffee in the mornings (which I cant now that I have been off of it) it has been hell for me, it really has. I tried Lexapro (which you take in the mornings) and I had the worst anxiety ive ever had in my life. I called my dr crying three times in one day. I will never try another anti dep. other than mirtazapine ever ever ever again. I miss being anxiety free I really do, I just cant sleep like I did before and that's all I wanted to do when I started it. I remember thinking how could I do this if I worked in the mornings? I couldn't! So yeah I really miss it, I feel I need to be back on it but I am only on Xanax at the moment, having an extremely hard time weaning off of it because of physical anxiety symptoms. I am trying for baby number 3, and don't want to be on any meds, but ive heard some anxiety meds are okay while pregnant you just have to confirm with your Dr and talk to them about
it. If it were up to me, I would choose NO meds, unlike the past 2 times I found out I was pregnant with my daughters, I was able to quit that day. Im having a really hard time with the Xanax. I cant tell if it my anxiety getting worse, or if it the medication itself that is hard to wean off of.
If it were up to me id still be on the mirtazapine but I quit because I thought it was causing my heart palps, turns out it wasn't !
