rapid weight gain withing 4 months or so
From this study (4 months ago):
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?
From this study (4 months ago):
blood work has come back showing elevated potassium levels now for at least a couple of years; in addition to kidney issues - could the polethylene Glycol be the problem? What are the long term effects of staying on this as it works very well to relieve constipation. I take it every night.
