It may take up to several weeks before your symptoms improve. Keep using the medication as directed and tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after 4 weeks of treatment.
Do not stop using mirtazapine suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Ask your doctor how to safely stop using this medicine.
Side effects like the extra drowsiness should go away if you take it steady within 5 to 14 days the beginning side effects like the drugged feeling should go away.
