    I have been on them for 2 months and it has made me pile on the pounds. I can't stop eating. I knock back 3 family packs of minstrels or m@m's daily. Each morning I promise myself today will be the day I start dieting and cutting out chocolate. But I end up going out to corner shop in the early hours, grabbing bags of the stuff. I have always smoked a lot of dope and have had \"munchies\" but nothing, nothing close to the sweet cravings since I've been on mirtazapine. I am tempted to try and get changed to knew types. But they help me sleep, although they dont keep me asleep. I also have horrific vivid dreams since taking them and it must be them because people who smoke dope relentlessly dont have many dreams. Anyway, I'm off to stuff myself with a family packet of Maltesers. (The shop was out of Minstrels)
