Mirtazapine :: Will Lose Weight By Lowering The Dose?

Nov 4, 2015

Please could anyone tell me if I reduce my dose gradually from 30 to 15, will I lose some of this excess weight. I have gained 2.5 stone in a year which I am struggling with. Tried to reduce before but now realise I tapered too quickly. I intend to do the 10% plan.

My worry is, what's the point in reducing if this ravenous appetite does not subside.

Lipid Lowering :: Atorvastatin - Adjusting Dose With Cholesterol Levels

After a heart attack in May I was prescribed, amongst other things, 40 mgs of atorvastatin daily as a precaution.  My consultant cut it down to 20mgs in September as cholesterol levels seemed fine and I have no further appointments to see the consultant.  Latest blood test showed my cholesterol level at 5 which my GP said would be fine for most but, as I've had a heart attack, he'd like my level to be 4 and he's put me back on 40mgs of atorvastatin.  He'll do another blood test in a month or two. 

Obviously one heart attack was ample and I don't want another and my GP is great so generally trusting what he says but...was a bit upset to return to 40mgs. 

Has anyone experienced up and down dosages with statins or have a view on my recent experience.  It goes without saying that I do my best to maintain a healthy lifestyle, watch what I eat and all that jazz.

Simvastatin / Lipid Lowering :: Weight Gain

After being on Simvastatin for 3 months I noticed that I had put on 1/2 stone in weight and my usual methods for keeping my weight down didn't work.

I mentioned it to the nurse at my review and she told me it wasn't the statin but just 'middle age spread'!

After a year on the drug I have put on a stone in weight and feeling fed up with this. My friend, who is a phamasist, says that weight gain is a common side effect of simvastatin but is not recorded by the drug company as a side effect.

Sertraline :: Trying To Lose Weight

i've been taking Sertraline for two and a half years now. I've ballooned up to a size 20 around 17 stone. I was on 200mg which apparently is the highest dose you can take according to my doctor.

Over the last few months i have managed to reduce myself slowly to 50 mg which hasn't been easy.and have now noticed that I am loosing a bit of weight. I wondered if anyone could tell me if they have experienced this to? I know the sertraline helped me to put the weight on in the first place and it defiantly doesn't help trying to lose weight while on them. I have found trying to lose weight on it very difficult. I have never certainly never struggled in the past when I wasn't on Sertraline.

Once you reduce the mg does the weight come off that easy? What ingredient causes the weight gain?

Mirtazapine :: Low Dose Of Olanzapine For Insomnia

I'm guessing you've tried the usual suspects, zopiclone, temazepam etc etc

When my insomnia got so bad I couldn't even function any more, my psychiatrist tried me on a low dose of olanzapine. It did help me. It is also a pig to get off though... There are no easy solutions I'm afraid. CBT did help me too, but I had to really work at it.
