    Mirtazapine usually works very quickly to relieve depression and anxiety, so it sounds as though it is not the right med for you. You shouldn't be feeling worse.

    Hi.  How much mirtazapine are you taking?  Are you, or have you, been taking any other antidepressant?

      I feel for you. I have felt like that - but came out the other side. Read the paper that comes with the mirt to see what side effects have been  reported.  There is no such thing as "normal".  Unfortunately antidepressants take some time to work and can make you worse during the delay.
