Does anyone have experience with Mirtazapine?

@carolcs. Good morning. @lisalucier has suggested that I jump in here. I am currently getting off Nortryptilene. The first 30 days went reasonably well. The next 30 days may be more difficult…down to 10 mg per day for the next 30 days. It is a little scary. We seem to treat some of these medications like crutches…..to help us get through our day. And I am like a detective watching every possible incidence of depression or anxiety. However, Nortryptilene is an older medication and I have already ramped up the duloxetine with my clinician's support.

I should tell you that I use Medical Cannabis for sleep aid and pain management. One dropper of CBD/THC and I am able to rest without waking during the night because of electric shocks or the burns inside my skin. Good luck and be free of suffering. Chris

Thanks Chris. Fortunately I haven’t been on the Amitriptyline for long (3 weeks) but it just wasn’t helping me sleep – hence the change to mirtazapine. I’ve only had 5 nights using this but still seem to have trouble getting to sleep without the zopiclone! I’m also taking magnesium at night (2 nights so far) and last night got to sleep but was half awake all night! Weirdest feeling as I was in and out of sleep and by 3am when I became more awake it was too late to take the zopiclone. So today I feel like I have major jet lag! If only we had a switch on our heads we could turn off!
