  • Mirtazapin weird reaction

    Does anyone take Mirtazapine / Remeron for flushing? I take it for almost two weeks now and I have a weird reaction I cannot interpret clearly. I take it right before bed and my nighttime flushing decreased, and my burning sensations too. but on the other side I have a mild flush in the morning for some hours (that I didn't have before). So I am wondering could this be a rebound flushing? Could I avoid this somehow? I would love to hear your experiences / thoughts XX

    P.S. Could this be an initial worsening?
    P.P.S: I thought about taking 7.5 in the morning an 7.5. in the evening instead of 15mg in the evening, but it has strong sedating effects so I am scared about being very sleepy throughout the day.
    Need your help! The docs in germany have no clue how to treat severe flushing ...

      M has been discussed in RF if you use the search field and spend some time browsing through the results. For example, Chai reports a serious rosacea flareup after withdrawing from mirtazapine. There are others, just take the time to search.

          Mirtazapine can be helpful for flushing, but really is not that useful alone. It can be combined with a blood pressure medicine (best is moxonodine, or clonidine otherwise) to have a better impact on the overall mechanisms of flushing. However, it can have a lot of mental health side effects, even if you don't start off with a mental health problem! Gabapentin has been more useful for me. Also you need to treat for demodex mites, e.g. with Soolantra or ideally with Zhongzhou.
