help please, tapering off remeron
Hi. I have been on 15mg of Remeron(mirtazapine) for 4 monthes.
It was given to me by my doctor to help me wean off Ativan I was on for 3 years. The Ativan was 1 mg per day, and originally was for sleep after a death in the family occured. Somebody told me "you'll sleep great". asked my doc, and he agreed to perscribe it to me. I took it every night for 3 years because i slept so well. 3 years later I developed anxiety, and docs blame it on tolerance withdrawl. I very slowly tapered off ativan while taking the Remeron. I am completely off the ativan 2 months now, and have gained ALOT of weight from the remeron. Therefore, doc has decided it may be wise to stop that too. I just dropped it from the original 15mg a night, to half that. I cannot sleep at all now. How long should it take for the extreme insomnia to dissapear so I can get atleast SOME sleep?
thank you
