Hi folks, rough ride over recent weeks. Had initially sleeping meds and lorazepam when needed. For last 2 weeks no sleeping med or lorazepam, working 5-6 hours a day but with strong nervous tesnsion, managed to keep up exercise. Normally very fit person. Taken turn for worse over recent days. The sleep is patchy but worst is wakefulness from 4/5 am and the bad anxiety from there, which in last two days was horrendous. Had to take a 0.5mg Lorazepam at 9.30 am today to be sure I could get through a big day out with the family.
I am prescribed Mirtazapine since Friday and will probably start tonight. Some concerns is how long the drowsiness goes on for. Will I have to stop my bike riding? this helps alleviate things so don't want to stop it ideally. Also i have seen that low blood pressure combined with this drug could be tricky. My blood pressure is naturally low from my exercise, is this a potential issue. Also read that there are people who take Vit D wlong with this which helps offset some negative aspects, any comments?
