Hello k82. You should find it working shortly because you have been on I believe it was 15mg? Give it a week and I am fairly certain that you will not have to take your sleeping pill. Very possible that you are reacting to the increase of the dose of mirtazapine. Dry the tears, try and relax k82 and please be carefull with your sleeping pill. Keep a watch out for any effects in relation to that pill. Is it over the counter or prescribed? (sleeping pill).best of wishes.
The increase in dose should become effective over the next week as you will have been on this medication a full month and the steady state in the blood takes 5 days from the time you increased the dosage. If you continue to have depressive symptoms after the week please notify the prescribing doctor as the mirtazapine may not be the antidepressant for you or maybe causing further depression and insomnia as a side effect. I do hope it begins to work and clear up any ongoing depression and insomnia. Unfortunately, choosing an antidepressant is a trial and error sort of deal so be patient.
