My doctor prescribed an initial dose of mirtazapine 7.5 to help with insomnia & long term general anxiety. My hope is that it will help me to wean off Xanax extended release (1 - 2 mg daily). Has anyone been successful in using this to help wean themselves off Xanax. Also, for me weight gain is not an acceptable trade-off.
If this drug works, how difficult is it to stop taking it?
