    i'm on 45 mg Mirtazapine.  I would have thought it would have kicked in by now -although I have to say that the only benefit I' e had is that I sleep.  It doesn't seem to have had any effect on the depression during the day.   They have now put me on 100 mg Sertraline to try to lift my mood as well as still taking the Mirtazapine.

    Iv been on them 4 weeks they have been fab for sleeping altho I am on 7.5mg zopiclones too. But mood wise iv been very irratic ups and lows that much, I loose my temper (raisings my voice) too which isn't like me iv not been as anxious and iv not been as badly depressed as I was tho so I guess there is more ups then there was before. Guess it takes time
