      Hey guys,

      I have a question to those of you who have been or currently are on this drug.

      1. Did anyone get a feeling it made their tinnitus better?

      2. Is here anyone who stopped taking the drug and if so did you notice an increase in tinnitus or did it stay the same?

      I am currently stopping the medication because I can't lose weight and I sleep 10 hours each night.

      Cheers,

      Chris

      Hmm I'm just curious because the same time I started Mirtazapine it got better to the point I would sometimes not hear it. Now on day 3 off Mirtazapine and my T is way up. Not sure if it's that or the bad food here at the hospital :)

      Going cold turkey off any drug is never a good idea. You need to taper gradually. I also take Remeron for sleep at just 5mg.

      30 mg of Mirtazapine here. Makes no difference to my T. (I think) but makes me sleep 7-8 hours and that is worth a lot. Gained weight though....
