Brief Answer:
I think mirtazepine can be used

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Health care magic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

From the available description it appears to me that you are probably dealing with treatment resistant depression.

Presence of various side effects with ssri also points toward the use of snri group of medications.

I also feel that using remeron should be considered as next step provided there is inadequate response with snri group of medications.


I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.
