Mirtazapine withdrawal nightmares?
Soon after starting Mirtazapine for depression I started noticing dizziness, drowsiness, and just generally not feeling good. My doctor suggested that I come off Mirtazapine as that was the likely cause. She said that since I was only on 15mg I could just stop straight away (not gradually reduce dose).
I have been off the drug for about a week and am getting horrible nightmares. It gets to the point that I wake up sweating and not being able to sleep for fear of having more nightmares.
When can I expect this to stop and should I go back to my doctor?
After looking at notes it is 5 days that I have been off Mirtazapine

you go back to your doctor and explain what is happening and you need to do it slower
