Yesterday I took my first dose of Mirtazapine  15mg. I took it at about 8. Didnt feel any different, althought my head felt a lot clearer. Forced myself to sleep at around 10pm. Woke up again at 1 am, feeling fully rested, slept again and woke up at 4am and 6 am. Is this normal?

I thought I finally would sleep a whole night.

Should I upp the dose?

    Are you aware of its withdrawal symptoms?

    Be aware and decide if you want to continue.

    Strangely I also took my first ever dose last night, around 1am as I work late. It kicked me out for about 12 hours on 7.5mg I felt like a zombie for a bit of the day but my head feels much clearer now

    I would leave it at 15mg for a couple of weeks and see how you get on. I feel very lethargic in the morning.
