hi, to all, was on seroxat for about 6yrs 20mgs, over a period of about 6wks i slowly came off them, but i found i was struggling with work and the daily routine of life, so after a visit to the doc, have been put on 15mg of mirtazapine, so thats a week of the tablets taken, now i feel all lethargic, like a serious hangover ( dont drink ) my sleep pattern is better, maybe sleeping to much, foned doc and was advised to continue taking them, sitting here dreading getting up at 6am for work on monday if they are still making me feel hung over, what is the users advice ?

many thanks ! for any replies ! :? [/b]

    Try taking them an hour or two before you plan to go to sleep. This helped me out a lot when I first started taking them.

    Also, the longer you're on mirt the more you get used to the sedative effects. I found that the \"hangover\" began easing up after 2 weeks or so.

    Hope this helps smile

    For me yes, I've been through several different meds until I started these and once I'd got over the initial hump, they've been really effective.

    I know they aren't for everyone though lol

    Did you manage to get up for work ok?

    I have taken this for a month and feel more anxious and panicky than before I started taking it.
