I was on fluoxetine for six weeks, it did nothing for my depression or sleep problem. The only \"good\" side effect was I lost 30 pounds in the six weeks I was on it (and believe me, I needed to lose that weight!). The doctor has now switched me to mirtazapine, only my third day but I have had two blissful nights of uninterrupted sleep. Before, I'd go to bed and be awake till 4 or 5am. Either that or I'd get to sleep and wake at 3 or 4. Never a good restful night to be had. I'm hoping the mirtazapine will continue to help me sleep and re-establish a normal pattern. Because I've had a couple of good nights, I feel much brighter. Just hoping that finally I'm on the road to being well again.
Good luck to all the other posters, hope you all get well soon.
