I have been on mirtazapine for 5 weeks mainly for insomnia but also have anxiety had no improvement with sleep so on zopiclone which does give me some sleep anyone else found it not helping with sleep ?as all reviews are saying it works well am I being impatient and not given it enough time ?
I'm just guessing but you don't mention the dose you're taking and I wonder if it might need to be increased because most people feel it's effect almost immediately. You might want to discuss this with your doctor and get her/his advice.
As for the anxiety issue it needs time to build up in your system to an effective level. This can sometimes take as long as 4-6 weeks.
If you haven't spoken with your doctor you should probably call the office... maybe on Monday.
Best regards and I hope you're getting some Zzzz's soon.
Mirtazapine is more sedative at lower doses than higher doses. I was prescribed it for severe insomnia a few weeks ago and have been taking a low dose that is currently being experimented with between 2mg and 7.5mg a day. The problem I have is mirtazapine has been associated with a rise in anxiety in me, which I'm trying to manage. I also use around 10mg of suvorexant a night which also seems to help sleep.
