I have recently posted abuot teh horrible anxiety I’ve been suffering, and yesterday I saw my GP about it. predictably I broke down in tears, so couldn;t make all the points I wanted to about the range of symptoms at the moment, but she certainly understood that the anxiety was the most concerning one and has prescribed Mirtazapine, one tablet at night to help ease this.
I’m open to trying it but struggling slightly with accepting that I need to take an antidepressant. I still feel that it is a physical symptom caused by my MS, but also wonder if it is a cause or a reaction to the dizziness and poor balance, or is it a reaction to noise and business (eg in town, as I mentioned in the ‘Noise’ thread)? though i feel it when Im at home too. Everything is interrelated… I suppose it can;t hurt to try the tablet to see if it helps, but I really wouldn’t want to be on it for any length of time.
Has anyone else taken it? I’d be interested to hear of people’s experiences with it.
