Yesterday I met with the mental health consultant and he was great. I felt he really listened to me and gave me all the information and options. He then advised what he thought would best suit my needs and came up with a plan.
So for the next week I am on a half dose of the Mirtazapine, to wean me off.
Then I will be starting on Haloperidol, which is an antipsychotic medicine often used to treat Bipolar Disorder. I'll be taking this along with my Venlafaxine. starting on a low dose for two weeks, and then increasing slightly.
I'm then meeting with the consultant again to see how it's going.
I do feel like a huge weight has been lifted, because I have a plan and know when I'm next being seen. Fingers crossed the side effects aren't too bad.
I'll keep you posted.
