Now my psych dr says to drop back to 30 mg as 45 keeps me awake and anxiety is worse. Felt better on lower doses, but would sleep until 11:00 am. Does anyone else have trouble with dosing this med? Seems like every 3-4 days I have to change the dose. It's taking a lot of my time and energy to keep trying to figure it out. Good thing I'm on Solutabs. They're easy to break into whatever I need. I had to quit my job as I can't predict how I'm going to feel each day. When it works, it works well... just very inconsistent and I can't sleep until 11:00 every day, when it does work. Diagnosed with GAD and depression along with insomnia by the way. Also take 2 mg alprazolam at night and sometimes .50 in early AM (5-6 am) if it's a night I haven't slept well. Does anyone "feel" when the Mirt wears off? This is partly why the dosing has been so up and down. I just want to feel normal again! Help!
What time do you usually take your mirtazapine? If you take it just before going to bed, that may be the problem. Try taking it 1-2 hours before bed and see if that helps. That way you aren't laying in bed getting anxious about how you should be sleeping or what time you'll wake up the next day.
