I dont want to write everything here so I'm just going to give a summary. I was recently bumped from 15mg to 30mg of mirtazapine, been taking for a month now for low mood, depression, poor apetite, and lack of proper sleep. Ive had vivid, bizarre dreams every single night since taking mirtazapine but they don't bother me much. I'd say around 10% of my dreams are in the nightmare category, but not overwhelming.
The first night of me taking 30mg, I felt several things that were wrong. While trying to fall asleep, the very first thing i noticed was that my right leg wouldnt stop having "compulsions" to move, also known as restless leg. I eventually get tired of fighting it and stay up a bit longer. The restless leg completely stopped after I told myself I was going to stay up and did stay up an extra 30-45 minutes. While trying to fall asleep the second time, i kept feeling these sharp pains in my right ear (which i cant hear out of currently since i made a mistake of using a Q-tip to clean out my ear and ended up pushing the earwax even farther in) that eventually stopped, but then whole parts of the right side of my body would start having these pains. I ended up being able to ignore these pains and fell asleep.
I had some pretty normal dreams at first (i think, don't remember), until i was randomly sort of "teleported" into an old middle school math classroom from my childhood. I knew instantly I was not in reality, that I was in a dream of some sort. I tried desperately to take myself out of the dream, which is an easy task to do normally, but every attempt failed at every point i tried it in until the end. During that lucid dream, I had no control over what was happening like i normally have when dreaming, I was not able to wake myself up and eventually I came to the conclusion that I was either dead or sent back in time. I woke up from what felt like being trapped in a lucid-nightmare-coma dream for hours.
I'm not going to go in-depth about what happened in the nightmare, all I want to know is if this has happened to anyone else? I normally have perfect control over my dreams and know how/when to wake up, but after being bumped up to 30mg for a SINGLE night, that control was taken away and experienced being stuck in a lucid nightmare.
