I've been taking Mirtazapine 7.5mg or 15mg for around 4 weeks now for sleeping problems / depression / anxiety (they all seem to inter-relate and feed each other).
For the first 3-4 days I thought they were brilliant - sending me to sleep and keeping me asleep longer.
However, in the last 3 weeks, I've generally tried to cut down to 7.5mg and although I generally get to sleep OK, I find myself dreaming constantly all night and very vividly. So vividly in fact that I'm waking up every hour after a dream feeling exhausted with my mind and body aching.
The dreams are usually quite stressful and involve me trying to do something which I'm putting all my energies into. I wake almost in physical pain, especially around the temples. I then nod off again into another dream!
The next day I usually feel very tired, drowsy and sometimes dizzy from such restless nights due to dreaming. This leaves me feeling too tired to exercise or doing anything apart from get myself together for work. My sinuses are usually pounding too.
Has anyone else had similar experiences?
