I'm on psychaitric medications haloperidol remeron (mirtazapine) and celexa. How long before I get better?

It depends.: It depends on the psychiatric conditions that you are being treated with. Celexa is for depression, Remeron (mirtazapine) helps with appetite and sleep problems often experienced in depression and Haloperidol is often used for psychotic symptoms which sometimes occurs with severe depression. The symptoms should improve after you have been on the right dose within 2-4 weeks. Your doctor will monitor you closely ...Read more

I am on psychaitric medications haloperidol remeron (mirtazapine) and celexa. Should I get better everyday the more I tak the medicine?

There is no 'should': Certainly not day by day will you see changes. If you work with the doctors and a therapist and the medications are right for you, you will improve. But it may have ups and downs and may plateau at times. It's not only the pill - it's what you do too. Talk to you doctor about how to manage your expectations - don't let yourself be disappointed. Be hopeful, but realistic. Best wishes! ...Read more

Remeron (mirtazapine) is causing me painful periods I want to stop the medication and I take 15mg how should I do that?

Not a likely cause: You should stop the medication under instructions from the prescribing doctor. As a reproductive endocrinologist I will tell you I do not believe the Remeron (mirtazapine) is making your periods painful, but you may still choose to get off it - just do it with a doctor's help, we cannot prescribe or treat you online. Good wishes. ...Read more

Got trazodone instead of remeron (mirtazapine). My life got worse. Lost relationship and my job within 3wks of this medication. Is it me or the meds? Miserable

Choices: When you choose replacing one antidepressant by another, even if used off-label for sleep, there is risk. One of them is symptoms of depression coming back if your response is different to either drug. I m sure though that some things can be discussed in therapy to check if behaviors can be polished so no more jobs or relationships are lost again. Ask your dr. Best wishes. ...Read more

Just started aciphex (rabeprazole) can I take with my medication klonopin inderal remeron vitamin d and fish oil?

Just started aciphex (rabeprazole) can I take with my medication klonopin inderal remeron vitamin d and fish oil?

No worries w/Aciphex: There appear to be some interactions between your current meds: the Inderal may reduce the fish oil effect, and the Klonopin and Remeron combination may cause increased CNS depression (more sedation). However, adding Aciphex (rabeprazole) to the listed medications should not cause any problem. ...Read more

I have been on 15 mg of Remeron (mirtazapine) for about a month. I would like to stop taking it. I have read many horror stories about getting off of this drug.

Maybe I'm dense, but: So you want to get OFF Remeron (mirtazapine) because you've read horror stories about people getting OFF Remeron (mirtazapine)? I don't get it. Regardless, you're not doing the math. How many is "many"? Remeron (mirtazapine) is widely used. Would you decide never to travel to Italy because you read, say, 20 or so "horror stories" when millions of people visit Italy every year? They go for a reason. Remeron (mirtazapine) exists for a reason. ...Read more

Yes: Yes, the side effects (sedation, etc) of Remeron (mirtazapine) do go away once you stop the medicine and gone to another drug.

I'm on remeron (mirtazapine) 15mg for social anxiety from 3 months. Can I stop it suddenly? Is there a drug to replace it?

No.: You haven't clarified why you wish to stop it. Before doing so, discuss with your prescriber your reasons, and consider whether a lack of effectiveness might be helped by dosage or timing adjustments, and whether a side effect might be easily managed. In any case, your dosage should not be suddenly stopped. ...Read more
