    A lot of people mention feeling this way and saying it settles after a little while.

    I know what you mean....I was worried driving on it and I had a bizarre day at work where I felt like I was in a waking dream state....I actually slept to begin with! It gets better with time - well that's my experience- I'm on week 4

    Sounds like ME talking! At least try a few weeks if you can - so you can honestly say you gave it a fair shot and you won't always be wondering- I've read a lot of people commenting so positively about it and I've been so hopeful that maybe it could help me, even though I've felt so crap that I didn't think anything could really help me ....I'm still up and down but not ALWAYS down like I was - that's something ....I hope...

    Yes stick with it, I have been on 15g for ten days now and feel an improvement, slight, but definitely better

    Please stick with. A lot of people are put off because the first few days of Mirtazapine can be difficult for some with the drowsiness and tiredness but I promise you it goes away. Once you've got out of the tiredness and zombie feeling..there are literally hardly any side effects for the majority of people. A few days of being a zombie is worth it for the outcome smile Mirtazapine has served me well so far.. I'm on 45mg but started on 30mg. The tiredness went for me about 3-5days after starting smile

    It's taken quite a while for me to get the right dose and start to get better. The thing is, I had a lot of trouble with understanding that it was a gradual change. I expected to feel better in a few weeks. I stayed at 30mg for 10weeks before deciding that although I had improved...I needed a bit extra and it's been much better since! Prepare yourself for a few setbacks, but setbacks don't mean you're going backwards...eventually you have more and more good days smile

    I'm sure it will....it's just a lot of patience and reassurance that is needed along the way. I really had trouble accepting that I'm going to feel a bit up and down for a while, but it does even out eventually. Touch wood, I'm in remission now. I will admit, patience is probably one of the hardest things for an anxiety sufferer to have! lol smile

    Thanks nuffy. The people on here are very supportive and have good advice. Patience us not my strong point either Rachael, and maybe I was looking or hoping for more than what I have got, but it has only been ten days and 15g, but yes it is better
