Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
I've only taken the drug for 3 days but I'm stopping taking it as the diarrhea is so severe. I have IBS D which might be part of the problem. I have been taking 15 mg of mirtazapine but this was causing some weight gain and sometimes bad dreams so I requested a change of antidepressant.
From this study (2 years ago):
Daily diarrhoea at start of high dose 32mg.
