    I’ve still been taking a small dose of mirtazapine at night which helps with sleep so I’m dreading going without. Jason on this thread recommended cbd oil and melatonin for sleep but I haven’t tried it x

    Matazapine helps you sleep I take a very small dose half a 7.5mg tablet, with prozac 10mg, I also have fibromyalgia ,which prozac do,nt touch at all, I have read duloxatine helps that, I have tired gabapentin but a very low dose, how do you feel on duloxatine, does it make you sweat , as I am menopausel and have a lot of that, was thinking of asking doctor about it, thanks
