I take 7.5mg every night. For a week my tongue has felt burned and it hurts to eat most food. Could this be a reaction to Mirtazapine? My doctor won't be in for another week? Can I just stop taking it in case this is an allergic reaction and has anyone had this reation? It has worked wonderfully for my depression. I have been a different person since taking this medicine even though my dose is small.
Hello 47136jb. I also take Mirtazapine. I researched your question and yes, l believe you are having as what you suggested, is likely an allergic reaction. If it is not, (if you are taking more than one medication) could be a drug interaction. I am however not a doctor. Best I might offer is a taper. Take half the dose, and if the symptoms go away, abate, then you will know. Do not stop taking the drug abruptly, it can lead to some serious side effects. Regards pledge
You may be having a side effect of it. It can cause white patches and sores in your mouth. This isn't an allergic reaction, that is a specific set of symptoms. Is it possible for you to go somewhere like an urgent care center? You can just stop taking it if you just started it, until you talk to your dr, but I'd hate for you to lose a week of medication for your depression if its not necessary.
