Hi everyone. I have been taking mirtazapine for about 5 weeks. After initial grogginess for the first week it has been wonderful for my sleep. However, it is giving me big problems with constipation. I'll spare you the details. I am only on 15 mirt. a day at the moment. If I went up to 30 - my doctor has suggested this as an option, but I've been so enjoying the sleep benefits of 15 - would the constipation side-effect be any less? Any experiences anyone's had around this side-effect, I'd be glad to hear. Otherwise I think I may have to come off mirtazapine, as I couldn't endure the constipation problem continuing long-term. I suppose I could ask the doctor for something long-term against constipation, but I'm loath to start on a second med just to get around the effects of the first.
