Mirtazapine is a antidepressant, it is mainly prescribed for major depressive disorder and anxiety. I could see it being prescribed off label for insomnia as it does cause a very sedative effect about a half hour after taking especially at lower doses. I couldn't stay awake more than a half hour after taking it. Just be careful because it also makes you feel hungry and I ate 10x more than I used to.
