How long do withdrawal symptoms of 1 year 60 mg duolexotine last ? I tapered off stopped but 2 wks after one momen I feel great then I feel horrible.

Stopped too fast: Tapering off an SSRI seems to vary from person to person. Generally, the slower one tapers, the better . Many of my patients have found it useful to drop 1/2 of a dosage level per 4 weeks. Stopping the meds completely can be extended over many weeks or even a few months. It is not uncommon to feel fine initially but then crash. Speak with your doc about what makes sense for you in this proces ...Read more

Taking remeron (mirtazapine) 7.5 and stopped abruptly what withdrawal symptoms can I expect?

Taking remeron (mirtazapine) 7.5 and stopped abruptly what  withdrawal  symptoms can I expect?

Discontinuation: Although symptoms of serotonin discontinuation syndrome are possible, most patients do not experience such symptoms. The dose of Remeron (mirtazapine) you report is low, and the half-life of Remeron (mirtazapine) is long, decreasing the likelihood of these symptoms. I agree that the safest course is to coordinate any discontuation with your doctor. ...Read more
