New to the forum so bare with me. Have been being treated for depression for the last 9 months. Still no closer to feeling like my old self, but that's due to a combination of the depression and the constant pain I feel from a herniated L5/S1 disc.
Currently I'm taking 20mg Citalopram, 3600mg Gabapentin, 1000mg Naproxen, 40mg Esomeprozole, 50mg Amitriptyline and the odd Tamazapam at night. My Dr now wants to add 15mg of Mirtazapine into the concoction of medication, but I know very little about it. Having read through some of the other posts on the forum I can see people have mentioned the fact that it makes you very groggy, which really isn't helpful as I already struggle to wake up in the mornings and am consistently late for work, which of course is adding more stress as I'm close to being taken to a disciplinary hearing. My Dr advised me that it would help with my difficulty in getting to sleep and not waking up during the night, but it seems it's just going to add to my issues with waking up.
I've kind of hit a point now where I really don't know what to do, and it just feels like i'm being bombarded with medication until something works. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
