Hi, I have recently had a bit of a breakdown following the end of a relationship. I initially started taking Fluoxetine but I was having trouble sleeping , literally couldn’t sleep at all for 7 days. I was lying in bed aware of my heartbeat thudding.
I stopped taking Fluoxetine for a few days and was slowly beginning to sleep but the tears came back and was an emotional mess again.
I have just started on Mirtazapine. It’s only been a few days but I am really worried about the side effects. They definitely help me sleep but I am a complete Zombie during the daytime. I am not “with it” at all. There is no way I can drive or go to work like this. The last few days have felt like a drugged blur.
Does it take long to get used to Mirtazapine and feel normal?
I took Fluoxetine previously for many years without any significant side effects and am thinking maybe I gave up on these too quickly or maybe a different SSRI would be better.
