I never take it too early, because if I take it and the opportunity isn't there for me to go to sleep, it makes me irritable and cranky. I did develop a bit of restless leg syndrome, at times, but my Dr. Also, my MD told me that he has had a few patients, who have slept anywhere from 18 to 24 hours straight after taking it the first time or 2.
(Very Rare) You'll sleep like a baby and you'll wake up refreshed and end up saying to yourself...
i take mirtazapine and have been for 2 years and i had major trouble sleeping the psychiatrist prescibed me zopiclone and they were amazing i was asleep in minutes they are only prescribed for a short period of time but if you take one u will sleep that night and also the next couple of nights it will be easier to drop off and in the day u will be alert i have 3 children and i could still care for them fine in the day.
Hope u find something that helps Mirtazapine 45's have been a godsend for me,no more night terrors and I sleep every night I take them,everybody's metabolism has a different reaction to them,a few of my friends that take them find that 30's are better for sleep and 45's for terrors and anxiety, wheras a couple of friends can take 22.5 and be totally unconscious 15 mins later,but if not used to them they feel drowsy all the next day I have been on Mirtazapine for 2 months and oh yes it definately helps you sleep!!
This was three years ago, and I made the mistake of remaining on the tablet for this time, instead of only taking it for a couple of months, as before.
After several months, the 15mg no longer worked, so the doctor prescribed 30mg, which worked for another year.
I am only on the 15mg and am wondering either to come off these tablets, or go and ask for a stronger dose, but I've read on here that it increases your appetite, which I am forever eating, and struggle to lose weight already. You might go back, (you'll have to resubmit what you posted here, and enter it as a question. Consider mirtzapine if you have intractable insomnia.
(Insomnia and abnormal dreams have also been reported as side effects.)If you have trouble sleeping, it is probably best to see your own doctor and get a pill to suit you and your condition. ive been using, this drug for about 2 years, 30mg at night, it does help me to sleep, but also affects my wieght, and i often have panic attacks, and feel dizzy, my gp wont give anything else. I began with a full tablet and within 2 hours I became extremely drowsy, with slurred speech and wobbliness. He thought it would help with depression as well as insomnia.For 40 hours I could barely get food and a drink due to extreme sleepiness. (After 2 hours of Restless Leg Syndrome) I sleep better than ever, including normal REM.My GP put me on it as it helps with weight gain and im a slim/fit build so it helps with appetite for me personally but does nothing to help me sleep. good luck, there is nothing worse than not getting any sleep... Just like to add this, that I've been on mirtazapine for just over 3 years or so.The vast majority of times it will help me to get a few hours sleep.
