Anyone else here been on mirtazapine and struggled with weight gain? I was wondering if my metabolism will return to normal when I'm well enough to go off medication.


Anxiety (Including GAD)

    Mirtazapine works like antihistamines (Benadryl) which basically dehydrate you and therefore you get hungry after taking them. I took mirtazapine for a while but not only the weight gain was bothering me but also the crazy vivid dreams. Even if I slept for 10 hours I would wake up tired and hungry. My doctor switched me to trazodone and so far it has worked a lot better for my sleep than mirtazapine. Hope this helps ❤️

    Yes, I've experienced bad weight gain on Mirtazapine. I have queried the doctor about but there doesn't seem to be another option for sleep and anxiety.
