MIRTAZAPINE WITHDRAWAL   
HELP TAPERING  OFF MIRTAZAPINE NATURALLY


Mirtazapine, like all antidepressants can cause a variety of severe symptoms when withdrawing due to a state of Serotonin dysregulation.  This is particularly true with a sudden withdrawal from Mirtazapine and the symptoms can be minimized by tapering off Mirtazapine gradually. [1]  Yet many find even a small dose reduction causes symptoms that interfere with every aspect of life.  This is why we implement both slowly tapering off Mirtazapine with a proven holistic approach to easing Mirtazapine withdrawal. Over the last 17 years our methodology has been implemented worldwide and can provide the best chance of success to get off Mirtazapine.*

SIGNS OF MIRTAZAPINE DEPENDENCY

Mirtazapine is a tetracyclic antidepressant that alters both Serotonin and Norepinephrine and as the body adapts to Mirtazapine intradose symptoms can arise that include anxiety, interruption in sleep patterns, stomach upset and a myriad of distressing symptoms.  Mirtazapine has not been studied for its potential for tolerance or physical dependence [2] but our clients all reported similar symptoms of intradose withdrawals, an increase in anxiety and disturbance in their lives.*


WHAT IS MIRTAZAPINE WITHDRAWAL LIKE? 

Missing or reducing one dose of Mirtazapine can result in one or more of the following withdrawal symptoms:  irritability, dizziness, nightmares, nausea, headaches and paresthesias (tingling, prickling sensation on the skin). [3] Tapering off Mirtazapine slowly is essential, but after 17 years of helping people withdraw worldwide, we have found that many need consistent, safe relief from Mirtazapine Withdrawal. We implement a holistic approach to both minimize Mirtazapine Withdrawal symptoms and assist in the recovery of the receptors altered by the drug*

MIRTAZAPINE WITHDRAWAL TIMELINE

Mirtazapine withdrawal may be different for each person and while there is no exact timeline, the symptoms generally begin within 24 hours or missing or lowering a dose of Mirtazapine. [5] Clinical reports describe withdrawal symptoms of panic, anxiety, restlessness, irritability, insomnia, hypomania, nausea and vomiting after a decrease or discontinuation of Mirtazapine.

    WHAT IS MIRTAZAPINE?

     

    A massive 2014 study of 22,610 people analyzed the affect on weight from the use of antidepressants. Mirtazapine (Remeron) was found to cause the greatest amount of weight gain, representing a 7% increase per year.There have been many reports of withdrawal symptoms upon the discontinuation of Mirtazapine or with a too rapid titration. 

    The FDA states, "Patients currently taking Mirtazapine (Remeron) should NOT discontinue treatment abruptly, due to risk of discontinuation symptoms. At the time that a medical decision is made to discontinue treatment with Remeron (Mirtazapine), a gradual reduction in the dose, rather than an abrupt cessation, is recommended." 

    Remeron (Mirtazapine) was introduced in the United States by the Dutch firm Organon International in 1996. Organon's first product was insulin in the 1920s and in the 30s they manufactured estrogens. Scherring-Plough Corporation acquired Organon in 2007, and in 2009 they was merged with Merck Pharmaceuticals. In October 2014 the U.S. government charged the manufacturer of Remeron with making improper financial incentives (kickbacks) to nursing homes to encourage the use of their drug. They were also charged with misrepresentation of drug prices and ordered to pay restitution for breaking the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute.

    Mirtazapine is known as a Tetracyclic antidepressant and classified as a Noradrenergic and Specific Serotonergic Antidepressant (NaSSA), meaning Mirtazapine affects Norepinephrine and Serotonin. 

    Mirtazapine increases the release of both Serotonin and to a lesser degree Norepinephrine (Noradrenaline). Norepinephrine increases blood pressure, affects parts of the brain where attention and action is controlled. Along with Epinephrine, Norepinephrine creates the fight-or-flight response that increases heart rate and triggers the release of glucose while increasing blood flow to the skeletal muscle. Serotonin influences the cardiovascular, renal, immune and gastrointestinal systems, and is essential to regulate body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure and the sympathetic nervous system. Mirtazapine is also a potent antihistamine that contributes to its sedative qualities but is also known to cause weight gain and sugar cravings.

    MIRTAZAPINE  BOXED WARNINGS: per PDR:

    Children, suicidal ideation Mirtazapine is not FDA-approved for the treatment of depression in adolescents or children; safety and efficacy have not been established. Two manufacturer-sponsored, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials in pediatric patients 7 to 18 years of age with major depressive disorder (n = 259) failed to demonstrate significant differences between mirtazapine and placebo with regard to the primary endpoint and all secondary endpoints. In October 2004, the FDA directed manufacturers of all antidepressants to add a boxed warning to their product labels detailing the risk of suicide in pediatric patients. The risk of suicidality for these drugs was identified in a pooled analysis of 24 placebo-controlled trials (n = 4,400) lasting up to 16 weeks in pediatric patients with major depressive disorder (MDD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), or other psychiatric disorders. The analysis showed a greater risk of suicidality during the first few months of treatment in those receiving antidepressants. The average risk of such events on drug was 4% and 2% for placebo; however, no suicides occurred in these trials. Pooled analysis of short-term clinical trials during early phase treatment with antidepressants in young adults (18 to 24 years) also showed an increased risk of suicidal thinking and behavior. The clinical need for an antidepressant in pediatrics or young adults for any use must be weighed against the risk of increased suicidality; patients who are started on therapy should be observed closely for clinical worsening, suicidality, or unusual changes in behavior, particularly within the first few months of starting therapy or during dose changes. It is unknown if the suicidality risk in children or young adults extends to longer-term therapy. The possibility of a suicide attempt is inherent in patients with depressive symptoms, whether these occur in primary depression or in association with another primary disorder. All patients with a history of suicidal ideation or behaviors and those with a prominence of suicidal ideation prior to treatment should be closely monitored during treatment with mirtazapine. In patients who exhibit worsening of depression or suicidality, a decision should be made to change or discontinue treatment. If discontinuing, the medication should be tapered as rapidly as possible, but with recognition that abrupt discontinuation can also cause adverse symptoms. All antidepressants should be prescribed in the smallest quantity consistent with good patient management to reduce the risk of overdose.
