I've been prescribed Mirtazapine following a bout of severe insomnia that left me hallucinating and very mentally ill. I was suffering from extreme exhaustion and panic etc - uncontrollable shaking and crying.
It's been 4 days of taking 15mg Mirt now and my sleep has somewhat improved - I am now no longer relying on Zopiclone and instead just supplementing with 5mg of melatonin. I am also not shaking and panicking during the day, so there are definite improvements. However in contrast to what a lot of people seem to say, I do not feel like I'm getting a restful sleep on Mirt. It feels as though I am spending 95% of the night in a state of what I can only describe as wakeful dreams. It feels as though I'm not ever getting to a deep relaxation level and instead am spending the whole night having vivid wakeful dreams (i say wakeful because they somehow don't feel the same as normal dreams).
During the daytime I am so tired, all i can mostly do is lie on the sofa with my eyes closed (again, different to what others say, I'm not actually able to sleep during the daytime either). I'm still feeling very weepy all the time, caused I feel by this permanent tiredness and lack of energy.
Is this normal? I realise it has only been 4 days. Does the next day tiredness ease up? Has anyone else experienced not feeling like they have a restful sleep on Mirt, but instead just have a night full of wakeful dreams? Does that tend to improve?
Thanks for any sharing your experiences x
