Hi - I've been depressed for some time, and have been taking Sertraline for the last two months (50mg at first, then up to 100mg). Although I feel that this has helped somewhat, I have real difficulty with sleeping and motivation to work which has been made university a real struggle. My doctor has since prescribed me Mirtazapine instead, as this should apparently help with sleep, but I've read lots of forums where people said that it caused them to gain weight. I actually lost weight whilst on Sertraline, so I wondered whether this might mean I wouldn't gain on Mirtazapine? Or are the two drugs very different - therefore meaning that I am still at risk? I ahve really low self esteem and really don't want to gain any weight.
