Hi, my doctor took me off fluoxetine a few months ago and put me on 15mg of mirtazapine as I was having problems sleeping. They worked brilliantly in the beginning but for the last couple of weeks I have been waking during the night again and I wake up feeling so tired and dopey. I am really forgetful, feel brain fogged and a bit like I have a hangover even though I haven't been drinking. I'm not driving as I don't feel safe to drive as I have been making silly mistakes like stopping at green lights and taking wrong turns because I can't concentrate. Does anyone know why this would happen months after starting the meds?
I'm not sure if the mirtazapine aren't working any longer and whether they need increasing or if my depression has got worse or if it's my perimenopause symptoms. When my gp first put me on fluoxetine 5 years ago she said it was depression not perimenopause.
I am so confused about all this, my gp is on holiday until next Monday, I really wanted to speak to her about it but I'm not sure I can wait that long feeling like this.
