Feeling so so bad lately- first psych appointment in 3 weeks but not sure I can make it until then.. Drs answer- increasing my pills to 3 a day plus 3 propanolol also!! Really don't feel good about this but need something asap... Does anyone have similar experience and how did you find the increase? Need a miracle to make me feel better, not copius ammounts of pills!

I ws on mertazapine 45mg and 15mg anti psych - the mert didn;t work for me but I was on it with sertraline also another anti depressant and I think we all react differently to different meds. You need to try to give the increase some time see if it does make a difference with the betablockers also being increased, it'll take a couple of weeks I would think to notice a change.
If there isn't a change then the psych may put you on different meds, of course medication isn;t going to be a cure I would say that other things have to be done too, for me anyway such as talking therapy

Thanks guys... On 45mg as of today- but really didn't respond well to 30mg so feeling very aprehensive about it. Still not sleeping and exhausted constantly... Will give it a go, not in a position not to at the moment, but to be honest wish I could just be knocked out until a new wonder drug has been discovered! Everything is so hard at the moment.

Thanks for replies- much appreciated :)

Are you taking the mert at bedtime - it is meant to have a sedative effect, if not switch
