15 mg mirtazapine effects

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello, I was hoping someone could give me some advice as i have just started mirtazapine. I suffer from severe anxiety and depression. Today is my 6th day and wondering if this is the right medication for me. Is it common to wake up verry sedated almost the feeling as tho one is "buzzed"? It also makes me sleep about 10 hrs a night and its verry difficult to wake up the next morning. I also get tense headaches that seem to come more at night. Aside from the mention side effects no change has accured to mood,anxiety, or energy(depression). In fact I feel that this medication is making me less motivated. Any inputs from past experiences? I forgot to mention i am on 15 mg. Thank you.

    Hi Jose, 

    That’s normal for the first 2 weeks foggy brain, but keep going you will get better soon; it’s really nice medication.

    Plan your day go for a walk, stay positive, the thing why you sleep much is because anxiety makes your brain tired; it is trying to get back on track.

    I hope it helps.

    Lot of love.

    Sorry maritza but in my and many other peoples opinion it is not a nice medication. Jose, I would suggest that you speak to your Doctor as once you stop taking it you will be back top normal.

     yes you will feel like a Zombie and no doubt put on weight which can be bad for you
