Hi I have had depression on and off for 20 plus years. I go on and off the tablets. When I am well I think I don’t need the tablets but when I get my symptoms back I wish I had stayed on them. I have started on Mirtazapine which has knocked me out a bit. I am on day five. I don’t feel able to get anything done like housework. Every thing is in a mess

Welcome to the forum, Snoopygirl. I know Mirtrazapine was a really bad experience for my nephew, absolutely made him a zombie, plus a lot of weight gain. Sometimes these meds are just not worth the side effects, as I'm sure you know from 20 years of experience. I have been on at least a dozen things over 35 years, keep coming back to the old school desiprimine and klonopin. These have their own side effects, of course, but more manageable than others.

Take care with it and be careful. One thing I really regret not doing is keeping a journal of what did what to me, as it's all a fog now. So journaling it can help down the road when another doctor tries to throw a new med at me after knowing me for 15 minutes.


Good luck and welcome again. There is relief in knowing others are experiencing the same things :)

Thank you. I usually take fluoxetine and it always works after two or three months but the first two months are hell
