I have been on Mirtazapine 7.5 for a week and last night it took longer than it did in the previous nights to help me sleep. I took it at 9:30 and didn't get to sleep for a couple hours,I took melatonin and finally went to sleep, This medicine was really helping me,I'm afraid its pooping out on me.
Hi, as Kaismama has said, it could be that you need a dose increase, or sometimes you can just have a night of unexplained insomnia, especially when starting a medication like this. I take 2 medications at night (for mental health, but they also aid sleep) and i can have the odd night when falling asleep is difficult. No reason myself or my doctor can think of?
