    Was about 2 weeks for me to stop feeling,exhausted,out of it and on another realm with mirtazapine.

    Each day I just felt that the length of time I was feeling like that was increasing.

    Also if you are on a lower dose..it's more sedative. I felt better when I increased from 15mg to 30mg and now I'm on 45mg I very rarely feel groggy but they still help me sleep.

      Your welcome Chrissy.

      It can be very frustrating at first...getting that level right and dealing with the side effects too.

      Don't worry about the increase either. I didn't have much in the way if side effects by increasing. Maybe a little increase in anxiety the first few days xx

    Hello,

    I'm where you are now, a week in & still feel very drowsy & spaced out all the time but mostly in the morning. I too have heard from other people on here that 2 weeks is when it wore off for them. So fingers crossed for us. x

    Haha made me chuckle!

    Yes i'm starving all the time since starting these tarts haha and my whole body feels achey. Feel like i'm not in my own body in the mornings if that makes any sense. I just have no energy or motivation at all. Do you feel like that? x

      Awe Chrissy. Honestly,if you aren't doing ok on them then just get the doc to change them to something else. 

      I think you know if something's going to be ok for you. I was just happy to get some sleep when I first got them.

      I really do think you are over the worst of it and in a few days you won't feel all them side effects but I also know how frustrating it can be when something that's ment to be helping you feel better,makes you feel so much worse.

      What ever you decide chick. We are here for you xx
