Started Mirtazapine 4 days ago

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi, I started mirtazapine on the 12th December as prozac wasnt agreeing with me even though it has done in the past. I have major depressive disorder and have been feeling extremely low for over a month now. Since i have been taking Mirtazapine, i have felt extremely groggy and yesterday i had crying periods when i just couldn't stop, it was so horrible. today the mental health team are coming to see me which im really nervous about. im so desperate to feel better but i do realise there is no quick fix. A psychiatrist I saw last week said that if you increase the dose to 30mg it can make you feel less groggy!

    I'm not sure if increasing the dose could help. If you have a mental health team, maybe they can offer some advice. I really do hope you start feeling better soon, but I am in the dark as well with understanding how these things work. Maybe it will take longer to have any effect?
