    It is different for everyone, Donna. Some people sleep like a rock and others,not as much. The lower the dose the more likely you will sleep sounder. As to what you will feel like, well, that varies, too. I didn't notice much change. Wish I could help more.

    I agree with Cathy.  It really does depend on the person.  I sleep ok on it but am never drowsy the next morning.  It's helped sleep and anxiety but not my depression.

    Other people find it very sedating and great for their depression.  You'll just have to try it to see how it affects you.

    Take care.  Gen

    Hi Donna

    What dose are you on ?

    I was put on 15mg to start with

    Then 30mg in both cases I was knocked out . The drug didn't agree with me so I had to cease taking it

    Everyone is different it may help you

    It may not only time will tell

    For me it made me sleep

    For its general purpose anxiety / depression I can't give an accurate account

    Only because the side effects outnumbered

    The benefits . I only lasted roughly 2 months

    Have a look at the leaflet that comes with the meds

    Regards daz

    Hi

    I agree with Gen and Kathy.  Mirtazapine helps me to sleep.  Unfortunately, 8 have alsoz put on 2 stones in weight.  The only advantage is that I do sleep, but it has no effect during the day.  I am on. 1 x 40 mg tablet of Propanol and 3 x 2 mg Diazepam during the day to try to cut down the anxiety.  Some days it works, others, I feel like hell.  They do cut down on the palpitations and anxiety - immediately, I waken, it's like a light bulb has,been switched on and the palpitations and,anxiety start.  The odd thing is that by about 6 pm, it gets better so that by the evening, I feel "normal".
