I take 45mg. Mirtazapine. I felt really good at first and euphoric but that could have been from stopping drinking at the same time, drink being the biggest of my several problems! I'm back to feeling moderately depressed now so I'm not sure it was the wonder drug I'd hoped.
I tried Prozac which was useless. I don't know whether to discuss this with my doctor; they're always wary of prescribing to alcoholics!
I'm sorry, I've forgotten what the question was but I do know there are many anti-depressants available. Mirtazapine is an "atypical" and meant to cover a range of symptoms. Personally, it doesn't really help with sleep and it makes me fat.
