hi after adverse affects to fluoxetine my gp prescribed 15mg of mirtazapine im on my fourth dose tonight and so far the only side effect is slepiness (un managable!) my youngest son is 14w and still needs one feed as early as 2am and im having to get my husband to do it as i can hardly move. this lasts through the day aswell and i wanted to know if there are any other mums that are on this and if their drowsiness improved at all? mine seems to be getting worse and i really do want to give it a good go two months if i can, my body can no longer tolerate SSRI's and the last two weeks have been hell for me especially having been hysterical infront of my 2yo boy both at home when a bailiff came and at my gp surgery. i previously been treated with citalopram so was surprised that a dr gave me fluoxetine specially as when i was 15 i had severe reaction to seroxat and the fluoxetine was truly horrific. sleeping is easier but im scared about looking after my babies with the drwsiness. ive had to do self referall and awaiting booking in appointment but im not sure if i could even complete counselling having two babies with me? i dont have any family/friends etc who could watch them theyd have to be with me which in turn makes me anxious i struggle to leave house as it is tbh
