I am using mirtazapine exactly 3 months and it was prescribed to me as an alternative to Zoloft, which definetely did not help when I was going through the 2 months period of extreme anxiety, panic attacks and acute insomnia. Zoloft helped with anxiety and panic but made my sleep even worse.
Now it will be the 4th month of Mirtazapine (30mg) - the first month was very bad in respect of side effects - I was extremely angry, I had bad panic attacks, foggy cotton head and weird nerve symptoms. Now all side effects are gone, I am also slowly losing weight, which I gained in the first month, but I start to get back disturbed sleep. At first, it was one bad night per week, now - 2 or more. Mirtazapine's sedative effects stopped working, it seems, and disappears together with the side effects.
Could you please share your experience with the sleep and life on mirtazapine? How long did it help with your sleep; did it gradually lose its effect on sleep; some other throughs and ideas..
Have a good day!
