    Depression
  • I was prescribed this for insomnia/depression, but I had to take it early (~2 hours) before I actually wanted to fall asleep in order to feel like it worked, but I still have problems falling asleep and staying asleep.

  • Time of dose is important. If taking it for GI, then take it before meals. Taking it at bedtime, kept me up for 3 hours. No kidding!

    How long did you take it?
  • It works moderately well for sleep maintenance but at doses above 7.5mg i find it hard to stay awake let alone focused, the next day.

    Depression
  • I take it about an hour before bed as it usually makes me sleepy. Staying awake for too long after taking it can cause dizziness/nausea. Sometimes causes vivid nightmares and excessive perspiration (possible non-remembers nightmares)

    Depression
  • It makes a person feel incredibly tired, especially at first, so take it at night and go to bed a couple of hours earlier than normal. It seems to work by sedating and calming, which can be helpful or a hindrance depending on your needs.

    Anxiety
  • My doctor prescribed mirtazapine after I developed allergic reactions to two other meds. It was an easy transition and generally works well for me with almost no side effects.

  • Strong antihistamine effects = take a few days off work when you start, because you will sleep nonstop. Not sure if there were sexual side effects, because I was just tired anyway. Don't think it had much effect.
