I have heard patients complain about nightmares and I had one client who wept uncontrollably on it - it really didn't suit him. Then again, I had a friend take it and swear by it once. It seems to be a night time med if I think.

I have been on mirtazapine for 5 years now and it is the best anti depressant i have ever taken and i have been on a few. I also take Citalopram for anxiety. I am on mirtazapine for depression though and not fm. I started on 45mg and 6 months ago i cut down to 30mg. My psychiatrist wants to cut me down further in a couple of months to 15mg and then stop. The reason being is that it puts alot of weight on you and that in itself makes you depressed. Finally i take it at teatime because it gives you an appetite. The lower the dose the more sleepinducing it is. Good luck. x

I was prescribed this 4 years go and they sent me off the planet. I only stuck them out for 10 days as I was getting panic attacks cos they made me so 'speedy' I felt out of control. I was really frightened. Bit I know some people think it a good drug - so yet again its a case of trial and error to see what works for you. I was switched to Venlafaxine which has kept me relatively stable , in combo with low dose amitrip and gabapentin for nerve pain. Best of luck!
