Can anyone advise what is a good dose of Mirt to take at bedtime to get over to sleep and stay asleep till morning. I've been taking 7.5 mg, but was thinking of taking 15 mg tonight as I'm feeling quite anxious.

    I take 15 for sleep, anxiety and depression. I just started 2 weeks ago and I’m dreaming again! What does your doctor say?

      Dr started me on 15mg but after several months reduced me to 7.5mg to try and wean me off then. Can't get appt with Dr until late nxt week so was just thinking about going back up to 15mg until I see him again.

       Hi Adele.  Hope you’re doing a bit better . How long were you on the 7.5 mg dose  before you felt anxious and couldn’t sleep.  ?. And did you  go back to 15 mg

    If you haven’t done this before I would check with your doctor.

      You may be going through a rough patch as you are withdrawing from 15.

      How long were you on 15 and how long ago did you drop to 7.5 ?
