Mirtazapine

Posted by @kayko1, Mon, Jan 7 3:58pm

Hi..I'm new to this website & to depression. I've recently been prescribed mirtazapine & I've looked into the side effects which include RLS..not only do I suffer that but it also affects my arms. I'm usually still awake into the early hours & it's driving me mad. Does this lessen the longer you take the drug? I'm finding myself drinking at night just to get some sleep..thanks x

@kayko1 Have you discussed this with your doctor?

I take it as needed supposedly for sleep. The main complaint that I have with it is weight gain. I’m taking it as needed only.

Oh, what dosage are you taking?

I'm taking 15mg daily & have been for about a month now..
