Hi guys.

Was prescribed these at the same time. 40mg propranolol twice a day, 15mg mirtazapine at bedtime. I'm one week in.

Anyone else been put on this combination? What are your experiences? Thanks, Ant.

    Hi Anthony,

    I am taking 15 mg of Mert but was wondering what the Isoproponolol is for? Is it for anxiety?

      As I understand it, the mirtazapine is to address my depression, the propranolol is like a baseball bat to my anxiety. And it really works, within two hours of the first tablet, all the adrenaline that was making me nauseous and shaky every day was gone, and as a result I find daily situations easier to cope with, which in turn immediately raised my mood.

      I'm still waiting for the mirtazapine to have an effect other than weird dreams, but I have high hopes now. The downside is a different kind of mild nausea and fuzzy headaches, but I'm told they will pass, I'll be sticking with it.

      Glad to hear you're making progress. I have some anxiety too but I'm not taking anything besides Mertazapine. Some days are better than others. The Mertazapine is mainly for insomnia. They say it's not addictive but that's not true. You get addicted to having a good night sleep.

    Hi Anthony,

    I have experienced mirtazapine and propranolol. The latter...the beta blocker I did not like .  it was prescribed as an safe alternative to diazapam. It just me feel physically unwell if I took any exercise...even just walking . Not for me

    Really glad you are feeling okay on both.  Propanolol is generally for high blood pressure and can make you feel like you are carrying a ball and chain on your ankle.  It would kill me.  Bear in mind that mirtazapine is a known cortisol suppressant.

      Hi Charles.

      I'm now on 30mg Mirt and 40mg Prop twice a day.

      I too am having disturbed sleep. Before I started Mirt and Prop I had no problems sleeping.

      However, the benefits I'm getting in terms of reduced anxiety and improved mood make it worth a bit of sleep disturbance.
