background - have been depressed for 15 plays years and have tried numerous medication. Escitalopram was the latest which seemed to help with the depression but my insomnia was worse than ever. I was only sleeping around 3 hours per night, which counteracted the benefits of not feeling depressed.
My dr has prescribed mirtazapine which I started last night. I took it at around 8pm and I've only just gotten up 10:40am). My husband took the day off work today so I could start them but normally I need to be up for 6:30 ready for school run. I feel awful, even my mouth is numb. I must have slept, although I remember tossing and turning a lot, and I had weird, vivid dreams (not nightmares). The GP gave me these tablets for insomnia as they help both but I feel like @@@.
on escitalopram even zoliclone at the highest dose didn't help. What do I do? I'm going to have to go back to bed as I feel so spaced out. I'm going to try and phone the GP but I've got to get past the gestapo receptionist so I might not be successful. Does it get better or should I cut my losses and nit take any more?
