Hi,

I've been on Mirtazapine for over a week now, I've chosen to take 7.5mg instead of 15mg because I just couldn't wake up of function! Saying that I'm still struggling to get up and constantly feel like I need to go back to sleep.
I've read people's opinions to take earlier but I work from 7pm - 12.30 and then have to drive home, so this isn't an option at the moment.
Could it be that maybe I just need to ring the dr and say this option is on the strong side or shall I just continue in the home I get used to it?
I'm worried because I'm missing appointments, taking little one to nursery and falling asleep just before work, making me on the irritable side.
I've certainly got loads more sleep but I feel worse for it, previously I'd gone nearly 6 months with 3hrs to no sleep, I didn't feel as bad as I do now with 10-13hours sleep.
Thanks

This tiredness may well pass after you get used new medication.

I'm having the opposite, it doesn't make me tired or groggy, in fact it makes me feel buzzy and alert, that's after 3 weeks of 15mg.
