Hi, I've been on 45mg Mirtazapine for almost a year, and suddenly found my anxiety levels rocket, so Dr has introduced 50mg Sertra line every morning, and then 45mg Mirtazapine at night. Anyone else on both. Thanks x

    I'm on Sertraline and Seroquel, so I don't know if my experience will match up with yours, but for me the sertraline didn't start working until we bumped the dosage up to 200 mg and introduced the seeroquel to balance things out. I hope that this works for you, and bear in mind that with anti depressants like sertraline it can take a couple of weeks to really start working.

    Hi Afo

    Its possible that the Mirtazapine has "pooped out", this happens after being on Mirt for a lengthy period for some people.  

    Maybe do an 'interaction checker' on the internet and see what comes up for you before taking 2 AD's.  If Mirt is no longer working for you I am not sure why your doc' would want you to carry on taking it.  Be mindful if you do ever need to stop taking Mirt, usually a slow taper is required to avoid nasty discontinuation symptoms.

    I am on both but at a lower dose of mirt and 100mg sert, so probably not helpful to you.   However someone else was asking about this combination recently.  I suggest you enter "mirtazapine sertraline" into the search box on the right of this page.
