    My son took Mirtazapine along with an SSRI.  Mirtazapine isn't an SSRI like Citalopram, and is usually prescribed to help with sleep whilst you wait for Cit to work.

    ​Some people do swap meds early on before giving their meds a chance to work, and some go from one meds to another looking for a quick fix.  There isn't a quick fix, but they WILL work if you give them time.  They really do take months, not weeks.

      That should have said my son was prescribed it to help with sleep whilst waiting for his meds to work.  It is an anti depressant too.

      He has since recovered btw.
