hello, i would really appreciate someone giving me thier opinion. I have anxiety and feel like i am never going to find the right pills for me. I tried propranolol and just didnt like them one bit. I then recently tried citalopram and after two days had AWFUL side effects, i dont ever want to feel like that again! so now the doc has prescribed me mirtazapine, and has told me they dont make you more anxious in the first few weeks of takin them like the ssri's did. just wondering if anyone has taken them for anxiety and what were they like? any answers wud be much appreicated. x
Hi, I am in exactly the same position as yourself..I'm suffering from bad anxiety and had just 1 Citalopram a month ago...I was so ill..I literally though I was dying..I swore I'd never take any medication for Amxiety again, however, as I'm getting worse, my Doctor has now put me on Mirtazapine, so far, I've been fine and I sleeping better..Hope you feel better too.

I was on Mirtazapine for a year. Anxiety became mostly controllable. had odd tingling feelings in legs. Really vivid dreams (such that I don't always know what was real and what was imagined). did help me sleep. did start eating again once on them. am still here so guess let me control the suicidal tendencies. Perhaps it was all in my head..
