I've been on mirtazapine (remeron) for 3 weeks. I was prescribed it after an intense reaction to a couple SSRIs that left my not sleeping and with frayed nerves. I started the Mirt at 15 mg, but as it was way too sedating, I cut down to 7.5 after the first week. I've decided to come off it as it doesn't seem to be doing much, and I don't like the side effects:
The last two days, I've taken only crumbs of the pill - maybe 4 mg, and my sleep has been rough.
Last night I tried melatonin as well, and was able to fall asleep, but still woke in the middle of the night unable to fall back asleep (without the help of .75 mg of lorazepam).
Any tips for surviving the insomnia? I was a GREAT sleeper before i tried any psych meds, and i'm leary of relying on lorazepam as a bridge to sleep.
