Please look up Mirtazapine online, I had a doctor prescribe this med with out my knowledge. I ended up with swelling of my toes & ankles, passing out , and manic depression. I ended up baker acted from this med, please tell your Doctor you would like to try something else or seek another Doctor. Good luck I will be praying for you.
