I am hoping to return to work which involves shift pattern, was wondering if anyone working odd nightshift pattern and when they take tablets. Also my eyes have became dull and blood shot since taking them, has anyone noticed a change in eyes and will this go away the longer i am on them.

    hi

    i do a very mixed shift pattern. I do one night approx every 2 weeks - doing one tonight as it happens. i just take my mirt in the morning before i go to sleep. Seems ok.

      Hi

      Have you had any side effects from taking them? Do you manage a sleep before niteshift and after you take dose in morning would you next dose before going back to bed that night.

      Hi

      i am on a very low dose of mirt, as I'm trying to get off it. I'm also taking 150mg Venlafaxine, which i take in the day time as usual. i try to have an hour or two nap before my night shift. I find it fairly easy to sleep during the daytime, but this has not always been the case.

      and yes, night after night shift I take mirt as usual at bedtime, therefore I am taking two doses in one day in effect. BUT as I said, I am on a very low dose . It still helps sleep thankfully.
