Trying to lose weight on Mirtazapine?
Hey guys, I’m on 15 mg of Mirtazapine (probably upping to 30 soon) to help treat my anxiety.
Who of you is on any anti-depressants and finds it hard to lose weight? At the moment I’m pretty down, I’ve gained 900g in a week. My appetite has skyrocketed since starting this drug. I don’t mean “Oh, I feel a little peckish here and there.” I mean like ridiculous munchies type, never feel full sort of appetite. Mirtazapine is often used as an appetite stimulant in animals and humans. (FUCK)
If anyone has any tips or words of encouragement please help! The best I have been able to do lately is just eat healthy as possible when I do eat too many calories for weightloss.
I’ve heard that upping the dose actually decreases this side effect, so hopefully that works for me, because I’m going to have to don my swim suit soon and I am not comfortable with that idea at all at this point.
