    I was on it for four days. Its been such a shame because i have ocd, gad and panick attacks and it worked wonders on that. However i have an eating disorder, and no matter what i ate i couldint get rid of the intense starvign feeling in my belly. If it hadent been for that i wish i coukd have stayed on it it worked wonders on anxiety. The drowsinesss wore off after a couple of days. I still felt it a little bit but would have gone away i think. I hope this works for you

    From experience, consider reducing your drinking and stick with the pills. I think the moderate drinking (less than 10 units per week) and taking the meds was more beneficial than drinking. 

    I'm on Mirtzapine 30mg, Olazanapine 5mg and Concerta 72mg (for ADHD). Pills are not a magic fix on their own, so moderating drinking and talking to a professional also helps.

    Hi Michelle

    Mirt' has a slow release sedative in it, so you will always feel slight fatigue, sometimes worse than others. After several weeks the drowsyness is less, the dreams, dry mouth, burning, itching, all calm somewhat. Drink with Mirt' is difficult, just one glass may be ok, but more and next day's hangover is more than anyone deserves - and drink always makes depression/anxiety/insomnia/OCD etc worse - sorry about that!

    Wishing you well  smile
