Hi forum. I would just like to share my experience  taking mirtazapine 15mg. Starting with mirtazapine i was very nervy as my experience with other antidepressants were all met with awful side effects, so I was wary. I have now been taking this medication for going on 6 weeks, and have to say, I have had no bad side effects atol. The only good side effects I have experienced are increased appetite, and vivid dreams , also increased sex drive smile and lots more energy. I also take 10 mg propranolol for anxiety, both seem a very good combination for me anyway. So I hope if you read this post and are as I was trawling the internet looking for good reviews regarding this medication, hope it helps you as it has helped me. I'm going up to 30 mg of mitazapine soon, so I will update my experience of doing so. 

Good luck

This medication has helped me a lot !!

    Hey i have been on 30mg mirt for 6 months now and take 5 mg escitalopram during the day.  I am now back to my old self and i must admit i feel great.  Life is good back at gym, socialising again and dont go to bed with the dreaded fear of waking in the morning.  This combination works perfectly for me.  Ive gained quite a bit of weight but hey small price to pay now i have gt my mojo bak x

      Hi Jacquline, did you find 30mg made you feel tired and sedated at first? I've been on 30mg for a week after 6 weeks on 15mg, I feel very tired through the day and lacking in motivation. Will this wear off?

      Hi liam sorry took some time to reply my internet server was down... Ye initially i was tired, have gained weight and my joints can be sore but my mood is totally lifted the anxiety all but gone and my motivation is back... I would say that i am most defo recovered although it has taken about 8 months to gt here... I swear by it but always remember what wrks for one does not always agree with the other... Im back at wrk and the tiredness does lift once ur system has adapted... I feel so good that im now forgetting the odd time to take my meds lol take care hope u gt ur motivation soon.

    Glad to hear it's working for you! Just curious though, if 15mg is working why would you go up to 30mg?   I'm also on 15mg (I've been on it for about 1 year now). I started off on 15mg then (I guess because the text books say so) my gp put me up to 30mg. I was on that dose for about 5 months. I gained 25lbs, and started feeling like I was in a total fog in the morning, with my whole body aching to the bones. My gp put me back down to 15mg and I've been on that does for about a year now. No more real side effects.

    Glad to hear mirt is helping you,  good to see a positive review! you may find going up to 30mg makes you more sedated and tired through the day like it did with me, I've been on that dose now a week and it feels like I'm fogged up with no energy. Hoping that wears off soon, it may not affect you like that who knows! It has helped with my depression I just wish my body would catch up.

    Relieved to read that you have increased sex drive too, been wondering if it was just me because nobody else seems to mention it anywhere, was worrying about what was going on with me!
