Just thought I would tell you about my experience so far.
I have been motivated by some of your experiences on here and thought I would try mirtazapine after much time convincing myself that I was better off without medication.
I am about a week on since I started it, so I can't say much so far...
To sum it up, many of the people on here, like me, didn't want to take mirtazapine because of some of the side effects that I had heard others experience...For me, I have experienced little side effects.
I have had no life threatening side effects.
The only side effects I have noticed really is drowsiness about an hour after taking the dose (15mg) which feels a bit like you are 'spaced out' but by just lying down in bed makes this feeling okay.
Maybe sometimes feeling restless when trying to get to sleep, and waking up a few times after bizarre dreams...
Also increased appetite for sugary foods, although this could be controlled by simply eating fruit.
The bottom line is, I didn't experience any adverse effects from mirtazapine a week on. I scared myself into not taking the medication because of some bad side effects. But eventually I took it, and it isn't that bad after all I will update you with my progress.
