For Depression: "This drug saved my degree, and life. I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety for nearly 15 years, I’ve tried all the SSRIs which didn’t help much, then I found this and it’s changed my life! The first few couple of days were rough, I felt completely spaced out, and not in a good Valium-ish way, it wasn’t great but it passed pretty quickly but bear that in mind if you start this while you’re in employment. It can take a while to start working, for me it was instant for insomnia, 4 weeks for mood and 3-4 months for anxiety. But it far passed my expectations, I feel something like “normal” now. If you’ve not had much hope from Citalopram, Sertraline etc I’d highly recommend it. Downside is hunger but less so at higher doses so stick with it"

For Anxiety: "I've been on it for about 3 years now, side effects like drowsiness are a given, it goes away with time and adjustment. Once you're good on it you'll know, it takes time (as the doctor will tell you). Kind of worried of long term use side effects after reading online but for now it helps. be back with any updates"

For Anxiety: "Loved this medication. Particularly loved the sedative side effect, because I had been unable to sleep more than an hour or two at a time, prior to taking mirtazapine. The only drawback was that my appetite, and consequently my weight increased dramatically over time. After taking it for 10 years I had to find a medication that would not make it so difficult to lose and maintain weight, but I have never found a medication that made me feel so good, relaxed, and able to sleep."

Remeron SolTab (mirtazapine) for Depression: "Best antidepressant ever. Also great for insomnia, OCD, anxiety and allergies. Isn't addictive and doesn't cause withdrawal in my exp. Also the effectiveness doesn't decrease with continuous long-term usage."

For Anxiety: "I have been on mirtazapine for a while now and my anxiety was mostly kept in check until I had a pulmonary embolism which can cause anxiety, then the anxiety kicked into high gear. The Dr increased the dosage from 15mg to 30mg. Hopefully that will provide some relief, so I can rate the drug as a 10"

For Anxiety: "Don't listen to any of the negative comments in regards to this medicine. I currently take 30mg at night. It helps with anxiety during the day and does keep u asleep at night. No real side effects with this medication. Of course it is a sedative so u r bound to be a bit sleepy at times but honestly it's not bad. More like calm then groggy. Only changes I found in myself since taking this medication is I find I don't have a deep sleep. Seems to be more like a light sleep with dreams but it's still restful and I don't regret this medication at all it's been fantastic. People say u gain weight on it but thats not true for everyone. I didn't find it made me hungry. No different then usual."

For Insomnia: "I take this medication at a low dose (7.5 mg) at bedtime for sleep. When I take it, I average about 7 hours and 40 minutes per night. When I don't, I sleep an average of 6 hours 30 minutes per night. That means some nights I'll sleep 7 hours and others, 6 hours. Not sleeping well makes me anxious and all I can think about is wanting to sleep. With this medication, I almost always sleep well. When I am not working (between contracts), I can sometimes sleep well without it, but with a full-time work schedule, I find this med makes all the difference. At a low dose, it doesn't cause weight gain either."

For Insomnia: "I was a lifelong insomniac. Used over-the-counter crud. Slept fitfully and felt drugged all day. I now take 15mg to 30 mg of mirtazapine and sleep soundly for a solid eight hours. Feel refreshed all next day. But, boy, it does give you the munchies almost right after taking it."

For Insomnia: "My son's doctor gave him this medicine. He has autism and it's suppose to help him sleep. He has been going to sleep at 12 or 1 and waking up at 4 and 5 in the morning. Not sleeping all day. May take a nap for 1 to 2 hours. Then back running like a track star. I wouldn't be surprised if I came home from work one day and he is running up and down the walls."

For Insomnia: "Consider mirtzapine if you have intractable insomnia. I'm a recovering alcoholic and my sleep patterns got thoroughly screwed up during my drinking years. Mirtzapine 30 milligrams provides the most natural sleep I have ever had in my life. I sleep for eight hours and wake refreshed the way I did when I was teenager. It's so much better than benzos. Doctors may be reluctant to prescribe because of the chance of weight gain. I did gain weight because it gave me the munchies. But it levelled off at about a 7-pound gain. But it did level off!!! And you may feel completely zonked for the first two or three days. It's a good idea to start on the weekend. But again, the extreme drowsiness did disappear after a few days for me."

Remeron (mirtazapine) for Depression: "I've been on Effexor for several years and suffered severe sexual effects so went to the doc and he started me on Remeron. For the last three years I've been training cardio 5-6 times a week, had lost 10 kg and feeling quite proud of my body. Now at just over three months on Remeron I started feeling my clothes getting tighter, am feeling fat, bloated and lethargic. I can't train with the intensity I am used to and just want to go to bed earlier and earlier. I weighed myself the other day and to my horror found I'd put on 11 kg. I don't feel I've been eating much more than I used to. Of course the realization that I've lost everything I've worked for in recent years has made me feel pretty bad, and I'm not sure I want to continue."

For Insomnia: "This stuff knocked me out for two straight days. My wife had been calling for me and thought I was dead. It knocked me out Friday evening and I slept until she came home in a panic Sunday evening. Best sleep ever, totally recharged but too powerful and scary to continue using. Also caused me to lose inhibitions. Just didn't care."

For Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: "I wrote on here Sept.13th and since then I gave gone back to doctor and she listened. She raised my dosage from 30mg to 45mg and I am feeling better again. It has given me my drive back again. Previously I have had no interested in many things including my health. Before being on this medicine I did not care about anything. Doctors would ask me questions and I would just answer but not care. Now I give them more information. I can't believe the difference this medicine has made. If nothing works for you try this and give it a couple of months to make a big difference. It is hard to wait so long but well worth it. I know everyone has different chemistry and for some it will not work. I hope you are as lucky as I am to have found it. It really works!"

For Anxiety: "I have been on this medication for about 4 months now. When I first started taking it, it knocked me out hard and when I woke up I could barely walk straight. I was so dizzy and off balance it scared me. My doctor told me that it is normal and to just stick through it. I felt better the 2nd and 3rd month, while it didn’t take away my panic/anxiety disorder it did help a little bit. Now I’m on month 4, I have been having panic attacks in the middle of the night. I get weird panic Attacks which shows in uncomfortable physical symptoms. I am now going back to the doctor to see if there is anything else I can do to improve or change my medication. This did help me get off Xanax 0.25-0.5 mg for 3 months but now I need it again occasionally."

For Depression: "I'm taking 15mg for ~2 months the problem is that 15mg is not enough for depression and when I take 30MG I will have a lot of anxiety .So it is not bad in low dosage be aware of increased anxiety when you take it in 30MG or more. I'm thinking to take it in low dosage 15MG with another drugI will check with my PD."

For Depression: "Mirtazapine is a good medication! My experience with it has been positive! It got me sleeping when I was unable to sleep at all for 3 weeks due to severe to extreme depression! Paxil made my depression worse; mirtazapine reversed my severe depression in 4 days at 15 mg! I wasn't able to sleep more than 1 hour a day for 3 weeks! Also was extremely hopeless and sad! All I could is to sit on the couch unable to leave home! I had no energy! I was scared to take this but I had no choice! It helped within 4 days! The sleep improved slowly on it over a few weeks but my sleep was still fragmented! It does not fix sleep right away! It took about 4 weeks before I could sleep properly! It took me about 2 months to adjust and feel normal on this med"

For Anxiety: "This med works great but these 7.5mg and 15mg doses I see on here seem low. At those levels it will make you so hungry (at least in my case). Just try 45mg and see if it works for you. I have also found that a little effexor mixed with it causes the hunger from each to cancel out."

For Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: "I have PTSD , Anxiety, and a TBI last night before bed 10 pm I took a 15 mg pill fell a sleep within a hour woke up a half hour later soaking wet from my night sweats and took a shower I was a zombie I know I took a shower but don't really recall what happened. I woke up this morning around 8 am which is not me I'm usually up by 6 am. I had to go back to sleep cause I couldn't wake up for anything I felt like I over did it with cold meds or sleeping meds - the lights were on but nobody was home. Then I slept till 11am and finally forced myself awake still a zombie. I knew I needed to eat food then I learned my taste buds are pretty much gone. Had Cereal and a Burger can't taste anything. Drank a Rockstar and still tired as hell."
