    Hi Carter have just read your post. No doubt you have had the best sleep you have had in ages. The drowsiness may continue during the day.I was very sleepy for the first few weeks and I felt very numb and out of it. I did experience increased appetite and weight gain. If you are overweight like I am then maybe join a slimming group or healthy eating programme. I still oversleep and I still have very lucid vivid dreams that seem real. I f your dreams trouble you then you'll have to chat with your doctor. This add on of mirtazapine has been very useful for me and is helping me get better. I hope it works for you too.
