Unbalanced sleep patter after quit mirtazapine

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello, it's now about 8 weeks that I quitted mirtazapine, I took it for one year for only an insomnia problem. Now It's going fine except for the fact that I'm experiencing a strange sleep patern: one night I slept very well with a deep sleep, in the day I feel rested but sleepy as I slept too much, and in the next night I slept bad with a light sleep. The next day as I slept not too much good I go to sleep in the evening tired and I sleep well, and so on the pattern repeat, I alternate one good sleep night and one bad. Is it still a withdrawal symptom ? Before taking this drug I never had this sleep, I had some insomnia not severe only in some nights that is the reason why I took this drug. I hope it's not due to a permanent change of the brain chemistry by this drug. Any advice please...thanks.
