I have had depression most of my life.  I do not beieve in Anti-depressants, but recently due to a lot of unpleasant things happening to me primarily due to other people taking advantage of my vunerable status, I have become desperate with ill feeling, depression & anxiety.  I went to the doctors I am already on a rolling prescription of valium & she has given me this mirt.  After reading the revues it sounds truly disgusting stuff that I dont even want to try given what I have read, I already struggle to sleep & struggle to get up and feel suicidal.  And from what I have read, this stuff is just going to make matters worse.  She said it would calm me & releive the panic attacks.  Advice welcome.  Good luck with low self esteeem too folks.  As George Harrison said "when your down thats when they start kicking"

      Yes it certainly does help.  Low self esteem is the route of much evil.  Confidence in oneself has quite often been destroyed by evil people, as in my case.  As you say BLOODY HOLIDAY I cannot look forward to things, only with dread, very very sad.  I have already taken the first pill & will take advice & try it.  Thank you so much

      15mg.  I am going on holiday with someone who knows nothing of my mental illness & we are having to share a bed (a girl I am glad to say) but at least with your own room, you can read a book or toss & turn.

    I have suffered from depression for around 15years but prozac tended to keep me on the straight and narrow. I quit taking anything throughout the summer but started going back into depressed state by October. Tried Mirt and it has worked for me. Assists sleep certainly. I have follwed this forum for sometime and it certainly paints Mirt as risky. Interactions with other medications and alcohol may be a reason for some of the bad reviews. I am on 15 mg dosage. Good luck Andrew.

      That is something that worries me because I do like a drink, it is more occasional but heavy when I do drink, what are the complications with  alcohol please.  Prozac made me feel awful & had no positive effects for me.  Thank you
