    Escitalopram (10mg) & Mirtazapine (45mg)

    So I’ve been taking Mirtazapine since mid May, slowly increasing from 15mg to 45mg daily. I have been at 45mg for just over 5 weeks and my anxiety has gotten much worse.

    So so back to the GP and he has prescribed 10mg Escitalopram to augment the 45mg Mirtazapine.

    Have just taken my in my first dose of Escitalopram. What can I expect?

    Hopefully, not a lot. The trick is to not get into studying side-effects as this often causes them all to develop, not so much from the med as from an anxious mind. That said, I think it would have been better to start on half the dose for the first 7-10 days - okay it with your GP first. There's a good chance escitalopram will work, certainly it is more likely to work than mirtazapine, ime.

    Thanks pdu. I know what you mean about the side effects. Read em all, feel em all. I tend to stuff the sheet that comes with the box into a drawer. If at any time I feel a bit odd I consult it then, but only then. If my peculiar feeling is listed, then I attribute it to the med, and cease to worry about it. Works for me.

    I used to get the chemist to remove them from the packaging of my antidepressant before switching to a generic which doesn't include a data sheet.

    Cool, but be aware that side-effects lists include everything reported by trial participants even those that couldn't possibly be caused by the med. For example, herpes is supposedly a paroxetine side-effect! If it really were then there would be something very wrong with our understanding of infectious diseases.
