A week off of mirtazapine, 7.5mg, was going fine then BOOM massive insomnia and heart palps that came on exactly 1 week after stopping, and at the time I usually take the mirt. Not only that but I remember ages ago when I was still adjusting doses it would take exactly a week I think for the new dose to settle/kick in.
Maybe I should add back 3.75mg tonight or tough it out hoping I can get through with valerian/niacin. Will be able to substitute other anti histamines and see if they work.
Is the heart pounding coming back due to lower adrenalin, the main reason I stuck with it in the first place is for helping POTS and sleep. Is this all withdrawal or just a return to the state I was before this med?
7/9/17 Mirtazapine cold turkey 1 week = insomnia heart pounding
