Anyone ever have strange feelings like crawling skin .. Feels like bugs are crawling across your face and arms?
Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Does remeron cause dry skin
I have very dry skin which is exacerbated by mirtazapine. What are the best ways to prevent this symptom, or treat it while taking this drug, also known as remeron?
- Is glaucoma or other vision issues a risk of mirtazapine?
I have had a large cup to disc ratio for about 10 years which my ophthalmologist has been watching every 6-12 months. I had a suspected TIA 1 1/2 yrs ago. I've been on Nexium for more than 10 years.

- Took buspirone once and got a blister
Took Buspirone 5mg once and a few minutes later felt a bubble on my lip. The next morning I check and sure enough it's a blister on my top lip. Called a nurse and she said I had an allergic reaction.
- Caution about remeron!
As do many folks suffering from fibromyalgia with depression I ended up seeing a psychiatrist; several actually over the years. During my clinical exams in nursing school my anxiety levels were unbearable and my doc changed my AD to Remeron. So what happened? No more anxiety - no emotions at all! My daughter declared, "You're not my mom anymore - I don't know who you are!" I was walking into walls, my eye/hand coordination went wonky, and I didn't care! The only feeling I had was hunger. I gained THIRTY POUNDS IN ONE MONTH! Not trusting my shrink anymore because prescribing this potent drug to a nursing student was beyond negligent I went to my GP for advice. She was shocked and told me she only prescribed Remeron for her endstage cancer patients, mainly to increase their appetite. I was switched to another AD and sailed through my clinical and state board exams.
Even though we feel powerless and vulnerable when in crisis we have to garner enough energy to get all the facts and question if the medication is really the right choice!
- Interactions of rantidine 150 mg & theophylline 200mg taken in am
I started taking 150mg rantidine with 200mg theophylline, and zyrtec in the morning before breakfast. Within 1 hour of taking my medications, even after eating, I found myself overwhelmed with anxiety, restlessness, the inability to think, and the feeling of dread.
I initially started taking rantidine in the evening, an hour before bed time, and found that it did not cause such a strong reaction. I really believe that these medications, when taken together, can really cause an adverse reaction for a person. I mean, it did me.
- Folic acid withdrawal
I took folic acid 5 for more than 2 years after my past abortion, i continue it until 5 days before that i missed to buy it! Every day i feel worth until today that i ate it and after 2 hours i feel dramatically better!
- Are you mental on methadone
My doctor changed my pain medication back in May of 2014 . I was pleased with how well it handle my back pain and was pleased with how inexpensive it was. My husband had been using the same drug with great results. It wasn't until about a month later I started to notice just feelings of sadness. I didn't think too much of it but then I would get such strong feelings of despair really bad that I would just cry. I also started getting a lot of panic attacks I had so much anxiety at times it prevented me from doing things. At one point I really thought I was having some sort of break down, but the feelings would have highs and lows and sometimes I would have a day with out them. Eventually after being on them for 7 months I went to my doctor and asked if it were possible I was experiencing these feelings from the Methadone. He wasn't sure but with it all happening right after I started taking them he decided to put me on something else. It's been about three weeks and even though the feelings are still there they are not as strong and seem to be passing. I hope as time goes I will feel like myself again and hope never to have to experience something like that again.

no i am not genetically predisposed for these conditions and all blood tests done with embolism causes have come back negative. majority of effects began with taking Remeron and Prazosin combo. was not diagnosed at all for high blood pressure for Prazosin Rx, actually had normal bp. after getting off Prazosin because of complete disorientation and blackouts, continued on Remeron and continued to get worse and worse depression with thoughts escalating to suicide. doctors have been very difficult in regards to this matter because they have so many clients on this junk and they do not want to lose their kickbacks and holidays from the drug companies but all i hear at the hospitals from other patients is how shitty and how many physical health issues occur while on Remeron/mirtazapine. there needs to be more medical awareness in regards to these products and the research needs to go far beyond "newest is best" mentality. my life is ruined because the prescribing doctor did not even want to monitor as directed for over a year and a half and did not want to heed medically apparent warning signs because it is not spelled out clearly enough that they have to be responsible for their patients conditions. now i run into an issue where my work compensation claim is being denied in regards to the physical side effects despite the recent reports from eHealthMe and FDA because the insurance company claims that there is not enough evidence and no definitive direction from the drug companies. only positive, am now slowly begining to lose weight since extremely hard battle while on remeron/mitazapine including near starving self to stop gaining weight. does anyone have any idea as to how to deal with this with a shortened life span and lifetime Rx for warfarin now demanded on top of possible surgeries and multiple procedures? is there anymore reports or doctors that understand what is going on as i am recieving pressure to continue on again with more antidepresents? what are the official list of "blood dissorders" referred to in the data and medical references about remeron/mirtazapine? is sleep deprivation and nightmares even an authorized/indicated use for Prazosin and if not why are psychiatrists and docs really pushing it for such a use? i am upset but any help with info would be great as i need to know how to deal with my current conditions and i believe the only way to do that is to reach a complete understanding about what went on before i am talked into drugging up a again with medical staff that does not want to acknowledge or educate about side effects and greater potential harm?
After 2nd dose of 15mg sudden electrical jolt in the head followed by resting tremor. Discontinued drug.
