Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- 2 nights i have taken mirtazapine & loratadine and i have had restless legs for 2 hours during the night. i also don't want to put on weight (1 answer)
I am on a trial taking 10 mg of MIRTAZAPINE for Insomnia, which I have suffered from for many years. I wake every 20-40 minutes all through the night when I do finally go off to sleep. I am also taking LORATADINE to try and help the thick saliva I get in my throat. I have to spit out saliva after drinking. I often feel like I have a lump in my throat of phlegm (but it isn't). My mouth also feel slimy at intervals during the day and night. I have changed my toothpaste to see if that helps. I have only taken these tablets for 2 nights and I already have had restless legs for 2 hours both nights.
- Is it okay to take 15mg. of remeron also known as mirtazapine
is it safe to take suboxone with remeron because I am having a panic attack
- Does mirtazapine cause dehydration? (1 answer)
Dehydrated lately. Urine is very concentrated showing dehydration. Wondering if the drug in question is the cause.
- What happens when mirtazapine 15mg is taken daily and smoking marijuana is also done
Mirtazapine started 4 days back 15 mg daily but smoking of marijuana continues. Person is adult, 27 years and frail.
- What causes ideopathic polyneurothopy if not diabetic? (2 answers)
Numbness in ball of foot. Started on one right side and progressed to both. EMG indicated Ideopathic Polyneurothopy. Pre diabetic with A1C of 5.8 - only one reading ever exceeded diabetic criteria at 6.6. Started 6 months ago with slow progression. No pain, minor tingling. Not constant but progresses during day if working and wearing dress shoes(weekends much better). Eases quickly in evening with no shoes and only stocking feet but does no go away. Feeling is not so much numbness as it feels like sand under balls of feet, swelling (no real swelling) or bunched up sock. Again, no pain but very annoying. Dr (Neurologist or Family Dr) do not seem concerned.

- Numbness and tingling in legs and feet from zyvox
I had a staph infection 10 years ago and was hospitalized for 6 weeks. While in the hospital I was given several antibiotics intravenously, and eventually was given Zyvox. When I was released the Dr. prescribed Zyvox, and I continued to take it for about 6 months. One morning I woke up and my feet and legs were numb and tingling. I stopped taking it immediately and told my doctor. She agreed that I should have stopped taking it, and that was the last that we talked about it. I had to stop seeing the doctor because I didn't have insurance, and still don't. That was about 10 years ago!! I still have numbness and tingling in my legs and feet!!! I'm assuming it is permanent. Is there anything I can do??
- Tingling feet and hands
I have used flagyl 3 times and after stopping the use of this medication my feet and hands have became so tingly and itchy That its becoming unbearable.
- Transition from mirtazapine to cymbalta (bipolar ii) 6 week duration taken in conjunction with seroquel, propranalol and implanon
In early September I approached my Psychiatrist to report that I was having sleep paralysis episodes as well as insatiable appetite. I had put on about 20lb in the space of 6 months since the sleep paralysis started.
My Psychiatrist opted to wean me off the Mirtazapine and onto Cymbalta. I have now been on 60mg of Cymbalta for about 4 weeks and completely titrated off the Mirtazapine.
I have noted that since switching to Cymbalta that I no longer have the insatiable appetite, nor have I had any further sleep paralysis episodes (though I have had a brain MRI to rule out any physiological issues - yet to receive results).
I have noticed that I have had mild to moderate rolling nausea with the Cymbalta and that I now have food aversions. Food does not interest me as much anymore and I find that certain foods (mostly processed snacks) are no longer palatable. I also find that I become full after much smaller meal portions.
I have found that I can no longer drink wine or spirits because they now taste awful however I can still tolerate certain brands of beer. I also no longer enjoy drinking cola.
I am also on the Implanon Implant. I have had this implant inserted for about 12 months and my cycles have been rather regular. Since starting the Cymbalta I have had some breakthrough bleeding yet my periods have not been as painful, though they have been heavier and longer.
My Psychiatrist will commence titrating me off the Seroquel in about two weeks and onto Topamax as it is his belief it will be less sedating than the Seroquel and that it will hopefully help as a mood stabiliser, treat my migraines and allow me to come off the Propranolol. he also hopes that I am able to loose some of the weight gained since the sleep paralysis episodes started.
As a side note regarding the Propranolol, I have naturally low blood pressure and I find while Propranalol is generally an effective migraine prophylactic, (I do get some breakthrough migraines) it does make my blood pressure even lower which leads to dizziness and faintness when I stand up too quickly from a recumbent position.
- Reaction to methylpred
I have a severe case of poison ivy for which I was given Prednisone. Still suffering 1 week later went back to doctor (was at 2x/day at that point) and was then put on methylpred 4mg PAK. Today is my second day on this. First noted tingling on my insides in my trunk area this morning, later in arms and hands and numbness in my tongue. Weird internal feeling. Now I itch and tingle.
- Patients having false positives while on remeron
I have had a few patients complain they are failing drug tests for Amphetamines while on remeron, and have claimed to have not used any type of Amphetamine or any (Mixed Salts). These patients are all or were on probation, parole, or under some stipulation. Iv realized most of these patients are taking another psych med. The list consists of insomnia meds such as Ambien(zolpidem), Sonata(zaleplon),Lunesta(eszopiclone). Also the Anti-Depressants Lexapro (escitalopram)and Prozac (fluoxetine). One of my patients was on Diazepam (Valium). I have switched medicines, particularly the Ambien, Lexapro, and Prozac have reversed the false negative. I prescribe many of my patients remeron. I'm a big believer in its effects on my patients moods and everyday depression. I have heard this happening before, but this was the first time I have ever had this happen to one of my own patients.(These were 5 separate patients in the span of 16 months) Of course none of these patients were criminalized based on lab results, but the issue still lies there. I know this is common for a lot of script meds to give false positives for narcotics. This is just obviously one I am putting out there. Let me know if anyone has experienced something similar.

From this study (13 months ago):
Previously using and recently withdrawn from the following medications: morphine (replaced by suboxone) moclobemide and duloxetine (replaced wita time of intense personal crisis and during an emotional breakdown. Some symptoms existed prior to change in medication, some are new and some have been worsening rapidly on a daily basis.
From this study (13 months ago):
Previously using and recently withdrawn from the following medications: morphine (replaced by suboxone) moclobemide and duloxetine (replaced with mirtazipine) and recently tapered off diazepam against will and against medical advice from GP in order to meet local suboxone prescribing regulations. All this occurred during a time of intense personal crisis and during an emotional breakdown. Some of the symptoms had been present prior to drug changes and some manifested afterward or while others seemingly became aggravated by the recent changes in (cessation of old and beginning of new) medication. In any case, many of the symptoms seem to be worsening rapidly on a daily basis.
From this study (1 year ago):
will this condition go after stopping taking the drug.
