As my title states, I've been on 30mg for quite sometime around 16 months, and I wanted to try going on 15mg so my doctor lowered my dose. He told me I should see an improvement in my sleep, but it won't help with my depression and anxiety as much. Which I was okay with, as I've made some fairly good progress with my depression and anxiety.
But, that leads me to why I'm posting I've only been on it for 5 days so far, but each night I'm barely getting 5 hours of sleep. I wake up, still feeling tired but I just can't fall back asleep, I toss and turn my eyes feel heavy but I just can't fall back asleep.
While on 30mg I was getting 8 to 9 hours. On 15mg I wake up, and I'm sweating randomly, my body feels disproportionate, like I close my eyes and my arms feel gigantic or small it's a hard feeling to describe, and for some reason it causes me anxiety.
I took 30mg of Mirtazapine around 3 and a half hours before bed and it worked wonders in falling asleep. But I find the 15mg acts a lot faster so I'm still trying to find the ideal time to use it. I can't see my doctor for another month as he's really busy so I can't report these changes to him at the moment, so I was hoping to know if it was normal for my sleep to worsen after lowering my dose, or if its maybe because my body isn't used to having such a low dose that it's possible these are some withdrawal symptoms?
