Have had a hip replacement, through an accident...Also suffer with arthritis in my knee joints.... Do take exercise swimming and gym, but after taking Mirtazapine for 2 weeks, I now cannot walk a few yards, my legs have gone very stiff with tremendous pain when I walk, ok sitting down or lying in bed. Walking seems to ware my body down, and makes me feel warn down, so I stopped taking Mirtazapine for 3 days, I can now walk that much better...... Could this be a temporary measure? and maybe when I have been on the tablets longer this may right it's self, or should I see my doctor
