Started 15mg 12 days ago, and am feeling more anxious in the am, and during the day than when I started. Also, I find myself short tempered. :o( Does anyone else have or have experienced this? is this most likely not the med for me? I don't have depression, just some anxiety. Due to a health issue I occasionally have to take prednisone which makes me terribly anxious and panicky, so the docs want to put a "cap" on the anxiety for when I may have to take prednisone again.I have never taken an anxiety med before, mainly because I never had anxiety. Seems like the doctors push it sooo much
Hello tammy9876. Mirtazapine/Remeron is an antidepressant. Seldom is it perscribed for aniety disorders. I have been taking it for years now. I also take Paxil/Paroxetine and that is for my anxiety. The irritability should ease up the longer you are on the drug. As to anxiety, I doubt it. Regards pledge
