Holy smokes?! I just signed up and I couldnt beleive your post!! I have had crps for 10 yrs in all 4 limbs now. A pain speciaoist decided to try this drug. It has been 2 wks now since I stopped. I was on 25mg 2x a day. I have never been through such a living nightmare. The rls led to the worse muscle spasms and dystopia I have ever had. I broke out in blisters. As a matter of fact the one on my thumb got so bad it ate right to the bone!! I became suicidal etc.. Im not a drama quenn either and dont belong on any other crps group. Im just saying. PLEASE DR GOOGLE THE SIDE EFFECTS… Please. Yes I felt happy too and actually lost 5 lbs. 👍lol

HI, @124811 – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Sounds like you had a really tough time on the medication.

Just wanted to clarify: the medication prescribed by the pain specialist was mirtazapine? If so, was it prescribed for depression, or for a different purpose?
