When AD's work, can it be up and down initially?

Posted by mtom on July 10, 2019, at 18:13:26

As mentioned in other posts, I have been cross-tapering Escitalopram (name brand Lexapro/Citalopram) to Mirtazapine (generic Remeron) for about a month, right now taking low doses of both and increasing the Mirtazapine very slowly as I'm hypersensitive to AD side effects (which I had tons of with Escitalopram, more so the higher I went in dose - and I never got to the "standard" dose because of these). Previously Citalopram was even worse, and a long ago try of Zoloft was awful. So decided with my Dr to try something different from SSRI's.

I've had a few "better" days the last couple of weeks, but very inconsistent. E.g. occasional days where I feel better (not 100% or anything, but noticeable) and motivated and energetic enough to spend most of the day tackling and completing difficult and long neglected tasks. But then followed by a couple of days of back to feeling the same as before (or almost the same).

Is response, when it happens, usually steady, or can it be step-wise initially with better and worse days?
