dear
it is not very clear from ur question whether u went to a doctor for reduced appetite or u feel u have developed reduced appetite after taking mirtaz.and u have also mentioned about drug induced hyperthyroidism.
i wud genuinely like to follow up ur case n help u out,but there are certain things i wud like to know-was mirtaz prescribed to u by any of the psychiatrist?
-did a doctor tell u that u have developed drug induced
hyperthyroidism?if yes,--i wud like to know which drug?
-- what is ur TSH,T3&T4 level
well the reason for reduced appetite cud b many.so a proper assessment of the cause is a must.it can be psychological/physical.and both has different line of treatment.
if ur reduced appetite is due to anxiety/depression,u may be given mirtazipine,but again ur normal sleep pattern has to be considered.but if u feel ur sleep has increased after starting of this tablet,instead of totally discontinuing it,just make it half a tablet a day and see for a week and plz do follow up with ur results.

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
