I have been taking mirtazapine 15mg for 9 months for insomnia and that helped but recently been on 30mg and they are not consistent in putting me to sleep should I persevere with 30mg for a few days straight and see if they will start working?also been under enormous stress due to relationship troubles glad to hear any advice from experience thank you
Yes, hang in there, give is 2-3 weeks. I know, that's long especially with the reported troubles you're having. Tried the many non-med related cures for this? Sleep studies show diet, that is intake of sugar in all it's forms (corn syrup, etc.) including artificial, Gluten, Soy, dairy, hydration, exercise (walking) changes in habit, especially 3 hours before bed, a fixed schedule, what to do when you cannot fall asleep or wake up, etc. etc., lots out there. I was able to dump the meds which all had side-effects and actually made things worse.
With a little research and some determination to improve quality of life, so much can be done. Go for it, do not allow this to conquer you, you can overcome, sure, takes time and determination but you can do it.
Hi, i agree, it may take a couple of weeks give or take. Stick it out & i'm sure you will soon be experiencing the benefits of the increase. Balbanese's comment about sleep hygiene is also a great suggestion, and can be surprisingly successful
