I am sorry, I am not familiar with Zispin. Talk to your doctor about Paxil sustained release. It might be the perfect medication for you.
I was recently given Mirtazapine in addition to other meds for my depression and anxiety. The brand name of this drug in the US is Remeron and Remeron SolTab. I have also noticed stomach upset which feels like a tightening of the intestines. The side effects also include stomach upset. This has gone away after about 4 weeks. I hope this information is helpful to you!
Side effects for most anti-depressants last only a short time and lessen with duration.
Mirtazapine is fairly new. The side effects vary from individual to individual. The concerns you are expressing should warrant a change in dose, or in medication entirely.
Since Mirtazapine is new, the chances of your doctor knowing of the full side effects are less likely. As with any new medication, one must be wary of the the short and long term effects.
Seeing as your doctor insists that the medication is not the cause of these side effects, and has not offered tests to see what the "underlying" problem is, I would say it is time to change doctors.
Keep me posted on your progress...
About to start taking Mirtazapine. I will use this site (If I may?) as a public journal, mainly to report/record side effects and the outcome of a complete course using this treatment.
I suffer from Bipolar Disorder and was diagnosed with this illness 15 years ago. I am male, aged 30 and currently in severe depression. Here goes.
I must say that I am in total agreement with Anai Rhoads.
Day #1 - After 1 hour of taking the tablet, I became very sleepy. And slept solidly for nearly 12 hours. A lot of my problems revolve around a lack of sleep. I did feel quite dopey when I woke - but who would'nt after 12 hrs sleep!!..No indigestion, heartburn, etc...
I am really impressed. ZISPIN/REMERON (Mirtazapine) Standard Dose taken @ 9.15pm
