Has anyone else found mirtazapine really really really sedating? I've been on it for two days now and find that I barely function. I'm drowsy all the time which makes work very fun - not! It's like there's a disconnect from reality.
I actually suggested it to my GP as an alternative to sleeping tablets since she was relunctant to give me sleepers for more than three days - not worth the prescription charge. I thought it would be a good idea to try a sedating anti-depressant since I've had insonmia for years (and she wouldn't kick up a fuss if I took mirtazapine long term for sleep) but I'd much rather have the benzos and be addicted than this crap. I can't stand feeling so sedated and generally more stupid than before. I've gone from 3 hours a night to 12-14.
