Hi i have been on mirtazapine 15mg for about year and half and havent felt it has helped much to be honest, helps me sleep but still feel awful in morning so Doctor suggested going on to 7.5 then come off it, can i ask would it be worth trying something else or go medication free??

    I've been on it four weeks and have to say I've been up and down like a yoyo. I've not had a good day yet. In fact my head either feels totally wired or totally depressed. It has lessened my anxiety and helps me sleep but no sign of the munchies yet.

    My life has become a blur xxx

    Hey colleen I have been on Mirt 30 for ten months now and I have to say at first it was a nitemare but I feel back to my old self again enjoying life and back to work. I sleep very well now no more anxiety and eating (well May be a bit much). If I'm honest I had horrendous side effects but stuck with it and started to feel better and clearer after 3 months. This drug has been a god send for me and I think it's like all meds we need to give them time to work.

    Can someone explain what a stone is? It is mentioned a few times in all the comments about mirtazapine. I gather is a unit of weight. I've gained weight but I live in America where weight measured in pounds.
