    Hi Zen,

    If you want a great nights sleep without feeling as if you were recovering from jet lag, give GABA a try it is amino based product and you will just relax and the garbage truck will leave your mind. Also even after a few weeks you can stop without going through utter hell. What do they say on all anti depressant medications, "THIS MEDICATION IS NOT ADDICTIVE" If this is the case, why do I see thousands attempting to quit? GABA Powder is best and go for the pharmaceutical grade. When we die the priest says, "ashes to ashes, dust to dust" We are all natural like rock, sand, soil, air, water and not some test tube created pill. Is it little wonder we are all getting sick, when the same chemicals are used in farming.

      Robert,

      Not my words copied gamma-Aminobutyric acid

      Description

      gamma-Aminobutyric acid, or γ-aminobutyric acid, or GABA, is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. Its principal role is reducing neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system. In humans, GABA is also directly responsible for the regulation of muscle tone. Wikipedia

      Molar mass: 103.12 g/mol

      Formula: C4H9NO2

      IUPAC ID: 4-aminobutanoic acid

      Melting point: 203.7 °C

      Boiling point: 247.9 °C

      Density: 1.11 g/cm³

      Look up GABA on the web you will lots of information. Honestly I have told many people about it and they are so pleased that I did.

      Bill I also use The words like natural ways to cure anxiety, depression and you will be surprised what you find. There is more to nutrition than medics actually understand.

    Everyone has their own response to medication. As to mirtazapine, I started at 15mg and found it great for sleep but not much help for anxiety (GAD). Upped to 30mg and pretty much the same so added 10 mg escitalopram (Lexapro) and had a somewhat better experience. On this cocktail for a little over a year.

    I'm thinking of dropping the Lexapro and see what happens.

    There are many horror stories on here concerning Mirtazapine but I think there are many more success stories that you don't hear about.

    It's up to you.

      James, nice to hear from a fellow Mirt + Escitalopram combination taker! I haven't seen many out there. I've been on this combination for just over a year now. How are you finding it and do you mind me asking what doses you're on?

      I also concur that everyone had a different experience. The weight gain is a fact and isn't great, there is no getting around that. But I will forever be grateful for the Mirtazapine in helping get my out of the utter torture I was in from the episodes of very severe insomnia (no other sleeping pill or drug worked for me). I have also had a positive experience with both Escitalopram and Mirtazapine for anxiety, although I'm still on that journey.

      It's a fact that for the majority of people coming off any drug (either Mirt or any SSRI) is very hard unless you accept it needs to be a very slow taper, and even then there will be bumps. But it is possible.

    yes it works pretty quick. on it 7 months and was a Life saver for me. Could not eat or sleep due to bereavement. It rectified all that. It calms u down and sleep well. may feel groggy first few weeks of talking it but this wears off. If 15 mg too much then try half a tablet, 7.5 mg. this is the dose used for insomnia as lower dose more sedating. Tapered off it slowly when i was feeling better. Been off four months. feel fine now.
