On Sunday mornings at 10.30 I organise a French convesation group. Saturday night I took my mirtazapine at half past midnight.
At the group I found that I hardly recall the words that I wanted to say. As an example I wanted to think of the word for yesterday - hier. I always have a problem remembering that - I know it is either hier or demain (tomorrow) but if I can't think of the two words in the first place I can't juggle them. When you tell me the word, I know it.
Of course, conversation requires the instant use of words, In English, we can think of alternative or simpler words for the same thing but if one can't think of the basic word it is very difficult. Effectively one is left saying one can't think of the word.
I note on https://patient.info/medicine/mirtazapine-for-depression-zispin-soltab that it effectively says that "Mirtazapine may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert".
Effectively "effects common with psychiatric medications (e.g. constipation, confusion, loss of coordination, memory loss)".
When I have important meetings I don't take it the night before.
Last night I dropped off to sleep and woke up at 2.30 and therefore didn't take it.)(
