    I'm taking both and I'm feeling much better but it has taken several months. Hang on in there. Things will get better. The Mirtazapine should give you a good night's sleep. I slept for 13 hours the first night! Make sure you don't touch a drop of alcohol. I made the mistake of having a couple of cocktails early into treatment and was incredibly drunk and extremely tired.
