Johnny's mirtazapine withdrawal success story

As I started writing this I just remembered back when I was reading these testimonials when first finding this program. Thinking how lucky I would be if I got to that point where I could write one, something that seemed nearly impossible at the time. And now here I am .

Before I get into how I was right before finding Point of Return (POR) , let me share a little about how this all started in the first place. I was 24 years old, very healthy, in great shape. I was a personal trainer at a gym, very active, athletic...that was my life. Then an accident happened while I was at the gym (In 2006), the machine I was working out on snapped and struck me on the top of the head. Causing damage to the frontal lobe...Also snapping my head forward, crushing nerves in the back of my neck and leading to a lot of nerve pain in my neck, back, other extremities. Eventually leading to parasthesia (tingling, burning sensations) in other extremities. 

Over time things kept getting worse for me, and wasn't getting any answers from doctors. And it's not easy dealing with all of these new issues on your own, not having any idea what they are, because I've obviously never experienced any of it before. I've been injured before, I've broken bones...but never this. Was always used to just fighting through an injury, would still play sports and workout with a broken arm, broken rib, etc. Not that I enjoyed the pain, but I just couldn't resist doing something I enjoyed so much . However with this injury, the more I tried to do, the more I set myself back..and would just end up with new symptoms that would get worse and worse and ended up with me going to the hospital eventually to try to figure out what was going on. But that never got me anywhere besides being offered a different med each time.


I always resisted taking a med that a doctor wanted to put me on, but eventually would give in to some , justifying it saying they know what they are doing and I don't want to feel this way anymore so let me give it a shot. Started taking klonopin in the beginning because I was having panic attacks, lots of anxiety. Was also taking pain killers for the pain I was in. Then I was put on Ambien because I couldn't sleep. And was on plenty of other meds throughout the last 3 years.

And now that I am off everything, feeling so much more clear minded..getting a bit of myself back, I realize that most of the bad things I went through was because all of the medication I was on, it wasn't just the injury. The pain still would have been there without meds, but they made it worse. They weakened my mind over time, making me not able to handle the pain as much . Basically not being able to handle anything. Any type of stress would set me off. And that's what bothered me most because I was very strong before any of that. I just wasn't me. And I thought that person was gone forever because of the injury. But that is what taking all of those pills makes you believe. It's all false. So if there is one thing I hope you get out of reading this is don't believe the way you are feeling now is permanent. Don't think your situation is different and that there isn't any hope for you. Because believe me, it is the medicine making you feel that way.

I prayed to God every day throughout the 3 years, asking for help. I will admit there were times I was ready to give up. When the pain got real bad, sleepless nights, the restrictions..not being able to live..be active, etc I would lose hope at times. The more time that went by , the less hope I had. It was all draining me, it was a struggle just to get out of bed and go up the stairs. Eventually my goals got smaller and smaller. In the beginning it was about wanting to live the life I had before again, to get completely better and be active, be the happy person I always was..then I ended up giving up on that and just hoping not to feel so sick all the time, get a couple hours of sleep, not ache and burn so much, to not feel so "crazy" all the time. Things like that.

The worst feeling is when I did sleep and would dream about good things happening but then wake up to reality..my never ending nightmare. I wanted to sleep all the time, I just didn't want to think anymore. Too much pain physically and mentally. And that is why I was on a lot of the meds , but eventually realizing a lot of those bad thoughts, feeling achy, overall not healthy at all was because of the meds. All of those times praying to God for help, then the times where I would get mad at Him, asking why is this happening (I think we all get to that point where we think enough is enough, why is this happening to me, when will it stop, why can't I just get my life back? And they are all the wrong thoughts). Because over time I was giving up , losing hope. And that is the scariest thing, losing that. When life just didn't seem that important anymore. I remember always thinking life is too short, didn't want to get older , wanting to enjoy every minute I could, then after going through the suffering non stop for 3 and a half years I started thinking life is too long, that I'm ready to be at peace now. It's a scary thing. And I had to get myself out of that mode a lot. To keep pushing when there wasn't much left.

And why I am saying all this right now is because I'm telling you that most of the way I was feeling was because of the meds. Yes there were plenty of things I was going through without the meds but they were making it worse, much worse. I didn't know that before, and honestly wasn't real sure about it when starting this program either. I read the testimonials and I tried being a bit hopeful that it was the reason I was doing so bad too, but thinking to myself my situation is different and I had a brain injury and so many other things have gone wrong . So it would take a miracle for it to work for me. I was running on fumes at the time I found POR. And I will never forget that day because that is when God did answer my prayers, that was my miracle.

I'm sitting here right now only 6 months later and I'm doing a lot better mentally. My mind is so much more clear now. I am getting myself back. I am still going through a lot of pain yet handling it better now, shrugging it off and being positive. I still have a ways to go , no doubt, but the difference is I am "looking forward" to everything now. I am excited about the future. I see a future for me. Each day I am getting memories back , good memories. Before the injury I could walk outside, and just look around and be happy. Appreciate everything God has given us. Not needing anything to go my way to be happy but just to stand there, look up at the sky and appreciate life. I lost that during the three years. And I am getting that back now . The excitement to live is coming back.

I am so thankful for Alesandra, Terry, Andrea, and everyone else involved at POR. They go above and beyond to make sure everyone gets through this as comfortable as possible, they make sure we succeed. Because they "know" we can if we follow the program exactly the way it is. There is no doubt for them like there is for us when starting this. They are on the other side, they've seen and experienced everything we have been through and know exactly what it takes to heal. I've gone to many..many doctors over these years, been to brain rehab , etc and nobody understands the way they do. Nobody had the answers they had. Nobody ever took control and layed out the steps to recovery. I always ended up going home and just dealing with things on my own again, trying to figure out what I should listen to and what not to listen to from the doctors. Because of so many setbacks I have had by listening to them, I lost that trust.

I can't thank POR enough and the best thing is knowing there are people out there like them. That's what makes me happy.




In-home Mirtazapine withdrawal program



Thank you also to the beloved mentors who selflessly volunteer their time coaching and encouraging, giving us advise and support.

I want to share my story about my experience with the anti-depressant drug Mirtazapine (Remeron) and the saving grace of God by leading me to "Point of Return" through desperate searching in the internet after failed attempt of withdrawing Mirtazapine (Remeron) (Mr R) and hoping can find a solution how I can kick him out from my body in a successful way. Above all I want to thank God for being with me throughout my journey to reach to the finish line of getting the Mirtazapine (Remeron) out of my body.

 I had my first Anxiety Panic attack that lead me to go to ER .It was after drinking a can of Red Bull energy drink. Doctor gave me valium injection to calm me down and since then I was prescribed to take home tablet valium as necessary and from then sleep was becoming a problem due to repeated attacks of anxiety. Every time I had anxiety attacked, I was sent to ER and went home with another prescription and at this time its Alprazolam Tranquilizer to help me sleep. And instead of having a good sleep, this meds makes me wide awake and tired, dizzy and anxious


Cold turkey the Aprazolam, and for 3 days no sleep at all. Consulted my Church Pastors and Church colleagues to pray for me and almost hopeless and thought I will not be fine anymore. Things get worst and worst and any option that seems I thought could helped,  all of those I tried but no changes in my condition.I consulted one of our GP doctor and was referred to the Psychiatrist to help me with my problem of sleep and anxiety. That time I was prescribed with different antidepressant and benzo 's and those did not help my condition as my body don't agree with it and instead of becoming well, it's adding me another symptoms of depressed , lack of emotion and more insomnia. I Cold turkey all those meds and November 8, 2015, my doctor prescribed me another antidepressant Mirtazapine (Remeron). I have no choice but to take it hoping it will help me. And on the 1st night with Mirtazapine (Remeron), I had a very long night sleep. From that time I continue to take the meds although I had a very horrible side effects like more anxiety, dizziness, restlessness. After 1 year of taking Mr. R, me and my Doctor decided to withdraw and stop the meds as my symptoms and sleep already improved and to taper it for 3 months but after a week of fast taper from my last the dose of the med , I had a very awful and horrible withdrawal symptoms namely :rebound insomnia, anxiety, depressed moods, anxious thoughts, nausea, vomiting, headache .dizziness, restless leg syndrome , IBS, anemia and etc. Because of very bad withdrawal side effect, I decided to go back to my psychiatrist and he reinstated my antidepressant to lower dosage. I was very hopeless already at that time. I thought I will be forever slave with this monster Mirtazapine (Remeron). And one day, while searching for an answer in the internet hoping to find ways how I can successfully withdraw this antidepressant, finally God lead me through Point of Return website. I was inspired and hopeful after reading all the successful testimonies written in the website. And to that moment I believed from the bottom of my heart that finding the Point of Return website was God's intervention and answered prayer to my long time prayers. Praised God! Halleluiah! No doubt, me and my husband committed to register and order the Point of Return program supplements .I began to taper once again and at this time in a very very slow and gradual taper and with the Point of Return Nutrients. They are wonderful, especially the Support, it's amazing.

I was determined at this time, cleaned my diet, hydrate my body, avoid the foods which interacts my medicine that cause more symptoms and took the Point of Return supplements religiously. And 5 months later after very slow taper, I am completely drug free and my healing has truly started!!! Now I am 1 month off meds and every day I noticed I'm improving. As of now I'm finishing up with some final symptoms... 

Without God's help and Point of Return whom God used as an instrument, I will not be here telling my testimony of success.

Thank you also to the beloved mentors who selflessly volunteer their time coaching and encouraging, giving us advises and support , to Karole, Athena, Elisa-Ruth, and Bobby , thank you to all of you, as you are part of my journey and you gave me so much courage not to give up I pray that God will bless you and give more good health and be a blessing to more people who are still on their journey and battle to get delivered and set free from the prescription drugs. God bless us all.

karens Mirtazapine success story

The 28th of April will forever be one of the most significant days of my life, and I write this testimonial on the anniversary of the day God led me to Point of Return (POR). What was meant for evil, God has turned to good because one amazing woman decided to dedicate her life to save the lives of those (mine included) who’d all but lost theirs to the destructive grip of prescription drugs.

My torment of despair weakened in the presence of the hope that came from pouring over the testimonials on the POR website. And now, with a joy I thought would be denied me for the rest of my life, I willingly share mine.

I will never forget the day that light shone on the darkness that had descended over me like a permanent shroud. I wasted no time in contacting Alesandra; who quickly became my angel-my mentor-and my friend. 

My first email, simply entitled, “HELP!” was answered within hours and thus began my journey back to , normality, health, joy, laughter, and fullfillment. In Aug of 2007 I went back into a protracted withdrawal and was ready to give in and hand my life over to the enemy that had consumed my life for the past 15 yrs! It was then I found POINT OF RETURN (POR). After a few weeks I improved and as of March 27, 2008 I have been drug free. I give all the praise and glory to my Father in Heaven for leading me to the POR products and to the staff that would help me regain my life!  

23 years ago I was doing night shift in a nursing home. I couldn’t sleep. My blood pressure hit the roof and despite my abhorrence of drugs, I resorted to sleeping pills after all the natural remedies proved ineffective. I needed to work, and therefore I needed to sleep but the pills only gave me an average of 4 hours sleep per day. My stress levels doubled, tripled and quadrupled as financial, health, and relationship challenges got on top of me. Antidepressants were prescribed and it was a downhill slide from there.  

I lost count of the many times I tried to come off the drugs. I suffered a few cold turkey withdrawals; the most traumatic one was a period of 21 days without sleep. I didn’t understand about rebound insomnia and depression then. I didn’t know that our bodies reach tolerance levels soon after ingesting the poison of prescription drugs and I had no idea that it would be virtually impossible to be drug free until I found the answer in the form of a safe, slow rehabilitation program that I could do from home. Following the guidance of the wonderful staff at Por I can now look back on this past year in awe and give eternal thanks to God for this miracle.

I am now writing my story in the hope of helping others who, like me had nowhere else to turn. It may only be one small ripple in a gigantic pond, but I vowed that if I regained my freedom (which I now have) I would tell anyone who would listen. This is my prayer. That one more pebble, reinforced by the weighty words of truth and thrown into a drugged sea of despair will cause a tsunami of ripples.

Mirtazapine (Remeron / Avanza) and Lunesta (Imovane) systematically stripped me of my personality, energy, passion, clarity, health and drive and exchanged them for agoraphobia, chronic fatigue, anxiety, memory loss, brain fog, hypertension and hopelessness. This does not equate to a fair exchange in my book. Our bodies are wonderfully and fearfully made but we cause every system to shut down by resorting to the myriad of quick fixes glamorously advertised and successfully marketed around the world today.

By utilizing the experienced, capable, and highly informed assistance available through Point of Return I have enabled my body, mind and spirit to recuperate. POR’s effective nutritional products alongside their unsurpassed support have given me a second chance. Alesandra, Andrea, Terry, Wendy and Rachel, you not only changed my life you gave it back to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
