Tiredness and excessive yawning

Posted , 6 users are following.

Originally, I was prescribed Mirtazapine 15mg because anxiety was making it extremely difficult for me to sleep. Now, I cannot deny that Mirtazapine helps me sleep (it puts me out like a light), but does anyone else feel, if they didn't set an alarm or literally drag themselves out of bed, they would sleep they entire day away? And, also, when I am awake, I feel like all I am dying is yawning and rubbing my eyes - has anyone else experienced this?

    Hi david.

    I can put signature under everything you have written. 15mg for me was too much ... yawning ... eyes burning (still present) ... complete tiredness ... I could sleep, then wake up for breakfast, then sleep, then wake up for lunch, ... For how long have you been on Mirtazapine?

    perhaps i'm just on too high a dosage. i like that mirtazapine helps me sleep. it was a life saver when i was suffering from insomnia. but i really knocks me out, and i'm quite a big guy.
