Depression :: Mirtazapine Have Stopped Working After 3 Years?
Apr 9, 2015
I have been really happy on this drug for three years now and envisaged staying on it for ever because it suited me so well. I was on 15mg at first which stopped working after a few weeks and then went up to 30 mg which I have been on for three years. My depression has been controlled and I was sleeping really well. Before the mirt, I had to take temazepam every night, but for the past three years I have only had to take it once a fortnight or so, but it is very difficult to get doctors to prescribe it now. Anyway, I have suddenly stopped being able to get to sleep. I have frequent need to urinate and my heart is beating too fast when I can't sleep. This used to be only a couple of nights a month, now it is every night virtually. Also, my depression and anxiety have suddenly worsened.

Do you think the mirt has stopped working? I am reluctant to up the dose if it is going to poop out again, as it will make it more difficult to withdraw from it should I need to. Has anyone else been on this drug long term and had similar experience? I have a doctors appointment a week tomorrow, but was wanting to hear others' experiences before I go.
I've been on mirt for 6 months. All going well until past 2 weeks. Now experiencing the dark lows, burst into tears over nothing, increased energy & weight loss. I strongly feel that meds are no longer working. Has anyone had this experience?

Has anyone else had this experience? I started out on a low dose and had great results. Now I am up to 1,800mg/day and it doesn't seem to be having much effect. I am actually ok if I am not doing anything, but as soon as I use my foot, it gets so hot I could probably fry an egg on it!

My story: was in a car/bike accident and ended up with the car parked on my foot. Broke all my metatarsals in multiple places, but things were not that bad until...SURGERY. After finally starting weight bearing I found I couldn't really feel my foot, but it worked. Then I had oral surgery and my world exploded. Insane nerve pain in my face and jaw which then transferred to my foot. Anyone else here with CRPS?
Oh yes, and shooting pains up and down my thigh and calf whenever I stand or walk.
Thanks to anyone who responds. Especially interested in those who found the gabapentin working at first and then not and those who are suffering from CRPS.
I am 50 and have been taking Tibolone since May 2015. The first few months it was brilliant. I could sleep better, no hot flashes or night sweats and libido was amazing. But the last 3 months things started changing. It seems that my body got used to it and I have bad insomnia again, night sweats are back , libido gone low. I am still taking it and hopping that it will work again. I did put on a stone in weight, lots of facial hair and in my legs too. My hair roots on my head have gone really curly . Has anyone experienced that ?

My daughter's spleen has stopped working. She has sharp pain the the middle of where the rib cages meet(not at all where the spleen is. She has a high white blood cell count. Do you know what might cause a spleen to working. She is 28 and is otherwise great health,non smoker and no drugs either. They have her on morphine and gravel,also hooked up to an IV bag as she is not eating. No blood problems in the family history. She is a vegetarian so she may be low in iron. The hospital is at a loss for what to treat her for but ill next do a CT. They have done multiple blood works but nothing yet. Thank you for reading this and hope that you know something about why her spleen has stopped working.

It's a strange feeling but I feel indifferent to myself and seem to not care at the moment about my actions and thinking that what I do is not a problem?
I was just wondering is it possible with depression to still have days when you feel down and want to give up?
Has anyone had their Klonopin stop working? I had antibiotics Augmentin in early June and it stopped my Klonopin from doing any good. It still hasn't started working again and I'm a nervous wreck.

I have been using Clomid for the last 5 month to try and repair my low test levels. I have been having to self diagnose and medicate as my doctor will not take me seriously as my levels just scrape the normal range, I know myself that my levels are not right. Before going on Clomid I had no sex drive, no morning wood, ever!! tense and irritable and lethargic. A week after I started on Clomid my sex drive was back, morning wood every day really felt back to normal. unfortunately the positive effects have slowly diminished over the last few weeks to a point that I feel as bad if not worse than before, morning wood gone, no energy and feeling pretty miserable.

I am wondering, does anyone else have this experience of Clomid working for a time and then just stopping all of a sudden?
After 5 good months of taking Venlafaxine and getting my life back together, being back at work etc my depressive symptoms seem to be creeping back in along with increased anxiety levels, i feel like I'm back on that downward spiral to go back to where I was 12 months ago!

I've had to take some more time off work as I feel so bad these last few days, got a Dr's appt next Monday couldn't get in any sooner unfortunately.
Is this an early poop out from the Venlafaxine? I don't know what to do I didn't think I'd be here again so soon. Currently on 150mg XR with 10mg of Abilify I know they will be reluctant to increase the Ven as I suffer from bipolar disorder and they are worried about mania but I've never had mania.
Has anyone else had any experience of Venlafaxine pooping out after so little time? Would an increase help me?

Anyways I started on .25 mg of requip then it was upped each week (cos it only worked for about 4 to 5 days) then up to 1 mg. of requip. Now it's horrendous and I rarely sleep. I found through research that Yes! they do use the benzos and gabapentin (neurontin), and opioids for WED/RLS. Last night I was at the end of my rope and used my ativan and low dosage of dilaudid and actually slept for 4 hours without interruption!! My doc doesn't understand and wants to try me now on Mirapex witch is another DA (dopamine agonist) and may or more than likely NOT work. It's a rough road, and I have done a lot of meds. I hope and Pray when I go to my doc next week I get some answers. As well he will NOT give me a ferritin test nor refer me to a neurologist.

I'm 28 and have crohn's disease. I have been on humira for 2 years which had worked well. The past few months, however, I have been suffering from a debilitating flair up. My Dr upped my dosage but it hasn't made a difference and am now back on steroids. I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this with humira? And if anyone had had success with any alternative medications?

I'm 28. I am capable of getting proper erection any time of the day except for being in bed with a girl. After clinical check and running tests the doctor confirmed that my sex drive is healthy and functioning and that my problem is purely psychological. Performance medications help sometimes help (sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil, .. ). But in other times they just don't have any effect. I have been told that as long as I have performance anxiety, all the viagra in the world will not help.

To overcome the problem, my doctor prescribed me Trazodone Hydrochloride 100mg every night. I have to say that after taking Trazodone for a couple of weeks I could have healthy sex with or without viagra. I took Trazodone for a bit more than 3 months and then gradually stopped. for the following 4 months I could also have good sex ONLY when taking viagra. But now (after 6 months of stopping Trazodone) viagra stopped working again.
My question is: Did the doctor tell me to stop taking it too soon? should I start taking trazodone again for a longer time? How long should I keep taking the Trazodone to completely overcome the performance anxiety?
I feel confused because I read that Trazodone sometimes have a reversed effect if taken for too long.

Say my Zoloft pooped out and I increased to 75 with no help in 4 weeks, what should I switch to that will help GAD, panic and possibly some agoraphobia?

One dr. says to try Luvox and just switch out the dosage with no weening.
Then I am thinking switching to Lexapro is there a ween process here?
Or, I am thinking of adding in BuSpar to the Zoloft since it has minimal side effects.
I am a 20 year old male and i was prescribed 50mg of zoloft. So far i have been taking it for 5 months and it basically got rid of my generalized anxiety disorder. Before i took the medication i have been having weird symptoms from my anxiety such as my whole body being tense from head to toe, my eyes not focusing properly and everything looking unreal or fake around me like i was high. Also it felt like there was a pressure on top of my head like if someone put a blanket on my head. It also felt like the skin on my head was moving and i couldn't just sit still, i had to touch my head all the time or put my sweater hood up.

It all started after i smoked weed about 4 years ago, i had a bad panic attack and ever since then i haven't felt normal. Not even my doctor has answers for me but he did give me zoloft. The zoloft has basically made me feel normal again like i was before i smoked the weed. But i made a huge mistake, Just about 4 days ago i drank alot of alcohol on the weekend and also on the weekend before that. The first couple of times i drank on zoloft nothing happened. But after this weekend i noticed the zoloft has completely stopped working and all my weird anxiety symptoms are coming back, Will the zoloft kick back in soon? did i make it permanently stop working? I am never drinking again for a very very long time. I'm just stressed out that the zoloft will never work again :(. Also the symptoms from my anxiety are so strange, I didn't know anxiety could do all these weird things to the mind and body.
