My 19 yr old son is on Remeron 30 mg at night. He takes it @ 9 pm and is asleep by 10 pm. He gets up in the morning around 9-10 am but is exhausted and will doze off and on all day. Is this normal?
Hello missyjojo. Normal in as fatigue, drowsiness, sleepy are normal side effects to taking Remeron/Mirtazapine. Once awaken, a drug hangover type of symptom is also considered common and normal. I suggest that his dose be adjusted, lessened (if possible). This might very possibly rectify the issue. The longer a person is on Remeron, most side effects will lessen and or diminish. Regards pledge
I would sleep on and off at nights. And nap here and there all day long on 30mg a day - or dose off even while i was lounging around with friends. My sleepiness went away after I was titrated to 60mg (but the higher dosage made me really much hungrier than on the low 30mg dose)
