Hello k82. well, in answer to does mirtazapine make you groogy yes. Is it normal, yes. I've been on mirtazapine/remeron for some years now. On and off, of it. If you feel that its not how you like to feel in regards to grooginess and so on, let your dr know. I'll say this, having been on psychiatric medications for a some time, speaking for myself here, I give time that is recommended for it to show some results. Mind you, everyone is different, in regards to how they respond, mentally and physically. The world of psychiatric drugs has come a long, long way in the past twenty years. And, the sky is the limit, to say the least. Whatever you do decide, to continue taking mirtazapine , or a change in meds, if you can let us know how its working out for you. best of wishes.
