    Hi I was exactly the same and after a week I decided to halve the dose to 15mg, I informed my GP and she was OK with this.

    But a lot of people have said that if you persevere it will get better.

    If you feel the same after a week or so I would discuss with your GP

      Yes I'm still on 15mgs, in my 3rd week now. To be honest I feel that my sleeping pattern is up and down. I'm feeling a bit apprehensive now as I am due back at work in a couple of days after being off for a month, my main concern is keeping my anxiety under control. I'll keep going with them, I hope you feel well soon.

    Mirtazapine turns you into a zombie during the day.  I had great difficulty getting out of bed and no productivity.  All I wanted to do was sit in my recliner all day and surf the internet.  Nasty drug.  So glad I've since discontinued.  The tiredness will subside a little bit, but you will still feel "weird" as you put it.

      Have you been offered anything instead of the mirtazapine John? I really don’t want to carry it on feeling like this but can’t control my anxiety.

      I only needed it for insomnia and to increase my appetite. I'm also taking prozac for AD.  Unfortunately, I don't have any recommendations for anxiety, other than benzos, which I suspect you are already aware.  you should talk to your doctor about other options.

      Hi jo, I'm talking mirtrazapine, 15 my for over 6 months. It does take a couple of weeks to get into your system. I also take pregablin for anxiety and this works great. Not a lot of people know about this for anxiety but it has worked wonders with me. A quick fix for anxiety symptoms is propanolol this works with in a hour when u start to feel shakey inside. Your doctor should no about what I've mentioned . Hope that helps. You will feel better it just takes time.
