    Hi Marie

    I've only been taking Mirtazapine 15mg for a short time

    for burning in my hands and feet but this strength allows

    me to have a fair nights sleep. Should be upping the

    dose to 30mg but wonder about the long term effects

    of these type of tablets. I am awaiting tests for this

    complaint and struggling today with the heat as I keep

    on having hot sweats which I've never experienced

    before. Hope you can find a medication that will

    help. Best wishes.

    I take amitriptyline at night it as a sedative effect and is prescribed for pain especially nerve pain. It does work, it relaxes the nerves in the body.

      Hi Woodie, I only take Amitriptyline at night to help with sleep. I do take other medications due to arthritis and because i suffer nerve pain due to the operations i have had. If i took Amitriptyline in the day i would be too tired.
