    Hi I am sorry to hear about your sons issues 

    I would contact his gp and explain the effects the new medication is having on him . That you have tried the new but it isnt working out for him

    Hi @fitzy71 and welcome to our online community.

    Oh heck, that sounds worrying for you.  I'd second @janer1967 's advice about telling your GP the mirtazapine doesn't seem to be helping.  Please let us know how you get on.

    Is everything else okay with you?  How are you coping with the lockdown?  If you need any support, you know where we are to help  <3

    Hi @fitzy71 - & welcome to the community. I hope the advice given above is helpful, & that your GP is able to advise. It must be worrying for you, so I hope you are able to talk to your GP soon. :)
