Been put on mirtazpine 15mg, I have no trouble sleeping but I've suffered since a teenager with anxiety. It's got bad a the min I wake up and step out of bed and all symptoms appear bad headaches going into my neck back pain, I have inflammation in my left chest wall which is painful also a lot of acid feels like I've been winded in my chest all the time. Feel tierd all the time. I have 3 children. My youngest is 2 and he suffers with possible asthma but carnt be diagnosed at his age I am always told. I'm scared that if I take the mirtapine that I won't hear him if her wakes poorly and if I do wake will I be with it need advice please

    Hello,I'm sorry you having such a tough time. I still get tired on Mirta, I've been on 30 mg. But it should get better after a couple of weeks. I'm hoping you get better, let me know how you doing.

    Hi Kerry-Ann,I think you should be all right as far as waking up.I started on Mirt 13 weeks ago on 15mg upping to 30mg(15 in morning,15 at night) 8 weeks ago.It will make you sleepy at first but over time will even out.Good luck and God Bless You,Bob

      No sleepier than normal, wake up feeling a bit tired, but being a single mum to two kids I'm used to feeling tired haha! A friend of mine is on it too and has no trouble driving. Annoyingly I can't drive so can't help on that one. It's not the sort of sleepy that means you're out of it, it does make you feel very sleepy when it kicks in (at bedtime) but after an hour or so after waking in the morning ( lots of cups of tea later) I'm still doing up doing school runs! I'm also training for a marathon, so I really haven't found it a scary sedative x

      I know how you feel! I have the kids six nights and seven days a week, can't let them see me losing it, I completely understand how you feel about keeping it all together. I have been able to function completely as normal with Mirt though. I was scared like you, if you feel you struggle on 15mg you can always go down to 7.5, don't give up hope, just know you are stronger than you give yourself credit for x

      I've read lots of negative too. But then I can't use ssri's and I know people that are great on those. We're all different, take each day as it comes x
