    Side effects from any drug can be expected and not the same for all. I take 30mg of mirtazapine and have adjusted well. Apparently your Doctor feels that it's the right way to go for you. Worse that can happen is you try the higher dose and if you feel it does more harm than good you return to your Doctor for a change.

      If you consume alcohol while on SSRI's you can have something akin to an anxiety attack. It can be pretty scary. Other than that I don't have any idea what your problem is.
