I have been taking Mirt for 3 weeks now. Before this I was on Amitriptyline for a good few years but they stopped working. After that I took Citalopram which I had bad side effects and gave me a loss of appetite. I had another go at Amitriptyline for sleep and it stopped working again. My GP started me on Sertraline 50mg. I was fine for the first few days but after that I had a permanent stomach ache for nearly 3 weeks. I finished them and then started Mirt 15mg, but after 2 weeks I was getting headaches from the tiredness. I spoke to my GP and she said to try 7.5mg for a few nights or try Venlafaxine if I didn't want to stay on Mirt. Anyway I decided to stick with Mirt as I read some bad reviews for the Venlafaxine and don't want to be messing about with different meds. I know everyone is different, but I couldn't be hassled with the side effects, feel I can't deal with them too well. The tiredness has worn off a bit and headaches aren't so bad now. But some days I feel like I can't be bothered with anyone or anything. How long will it take for full effects of Mirt to work or should they be fully working for me by now. Maybe I'm expecting miracles to happen too soon.
