I've been taking Mirtazapine for 2 weeks, 15mg first week and then upto 30mg nightly!

How long does it take to work and will the drowsiness in the day go away??

    Hi Mandy.

    As Rob wrote, you should notice the change in 4-6 weeks. Anyway the sleeping should be improved immediately. Unfortunatelly it is also my case that tiredness (drowsiness) has stayed all the time with me. I have been on Mirt for 9 months approximately.
