Having tried Citalopram (and passing out 2 hours later), I was moved onto Mirtazapine, as I previously passed out on Prozac so SSRIs were not recommended. I started on 15mg on Mirtazapine and after 2 months the sleeping was great, but I did not feel it was touching the depression itself.
I was increased to 30mg just over two weeks ago and since then I have felt worse than I did before the increase. I wasn't sure if this was due to putting pressure on myself to be ok over christmas (I have a lovely wife and two children and didn't want to spoil it), but have spent some part of each day in tears. I just feel frustrated at feeling depressed and despondant I guess.
I was considering droppoing down the Mirtazpine to 15mg again but realised it has only been two weeks (not the three I originally thought it had been).
Anyone have any experience of whether initially increasing their dose temporarily set them back, its so hard to know what to do for the best
