I am 31 years old male. I have been struggling with insomnia for the last 8/9 years. Basically insomnia is running my life now. I can not go to early meeting or just can not participate anything which is early in the morning. I just get too anxious and lose my sleep all night. I have tried tons of other herbal and rx medicine. Dr doesn't want to prescribe benzo because of physical dependency. I did take 15mg pill of Mirtazapine but I felt sleep, groggy and tired all day for the next couple of days. Should I continue taking this medicine? Will it fix my insomnia issue?
This is a question for the Dr since it modifies his orders.
You took it before bed? You would get used to it and the symptoms would stop. I always worked 3-11 because I would do exactly what you do. Try taking the mirtazapine a little before bed and you'll have less symptoms in the am.
Hello Aj, You didn't mention how long you've been taking the Remeron? If it hasn't been long I suggest you to continue taking it as time goes on the groggy sleepy feeling may subside. I have been on it for about 6 weeks and I no longer feel groggy. Also if this continues please go back to the prescribing doctor and let him/her know what's going on and possibly a sleep study is in order.
