am taking mirtazapine for severe anxiety and panic attacks . It has definately helped but i am always dizzy and wonder when this will ever go away. In the last 2 weeks the doc has upped my dose from 30mg to 45 saying that the dizziness is still being caused by anxiety , i feel like the dizziness could be a side affect from the drug.
Yes, unfortunately dizziness is the side effect of taking mirtazapine, around 7% people who take this med have complained of this side effect.
Mirtazapine will not work if you stop taking it & the side effects should also should go away once the med is eliminated from the system, it is recommended to speak to your doc who prescribed the med either for a remedy to this side effect or to prescribe an alternate, hope the info helps? Above all be well & safe!
Hi, dizziness it is a common side effect of the medication.Before answering I checked in 4 different sites. So you are right. The more they increase your dose the stronger the s.effect will be.
Talk to your doctor ( he sounds like he does not care too much about humanity... people like us..their patients)
Take care, and be carefull specially when you walk!!
