Yes, you can take them with sleepers, mirtazipine is supposed to be a sedative drug but TBH I've had no luck with getting any sleep on them and my psych won't prescribe me sleepers.

:LOL: I don't cope, I feel like ripping my eyes out!!:p I'm on 30mg but I really think they are useless though I know they have helped a lot of people on here. I seem to have the constitution of a horse when it comes to sedative tablets. I've seen me taking mirtazipine, a sleeping tablet and 2 nightol and still only getting a couple of hours!! No wonder sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture!!

It does help a lot of people, if your doc has recommended them then I'd give them a go. I've not really had any bad side effects on them but neither have I had any good effects!! I know what you mean about the stomach thing - I've got Irritable Bowel Syndrome because of my nerves and my tummy is constantly sore and washing machine like!!

You too, though its doubtful for me!! I've got a hubby who snores like a train and a 9 week old kitten who sleeps in the crook of my neck and I've no sleepers - not conducive to a good nights sleep!! Ho hum, just need to make the best of a bad lot!!:D

I'm on 15 mg a day and they do nothing for me. Even tried to get it increased but no luck. Luckly enough my stomach is fine with it as I also have Irratible bowl syndrome. Unlucky- awww sorry to hear that you're not having a good time of it on them.

All things considered- i might as well be taken a sugar lump or a plecbo because at the start I did find that they helped, but, now I see no effect.

My sleeping patten on them is totally off the scale. When I used to work, I used to have 8 hours a night bog standard times- getting up every now and then for the loo... but now with these tablets my sleeping is affected as well as my eating.
