I’m taking Mirtazapine to help with sleep issues as well. I’m currently taking 7.5 mg. before bed and not having any severe side effects.
My husband falls asleep quickly, but will awake around 3am and have trouble going back to sleep. My dr. suggested he try Nuvana Shut Eye, which is a natural sleep aid. It contains all natural ingredients and he’s sleeping better and not waking up drowsy. We purchased on-line and then received a free bottle after giving an online review of the product. I think overall he’s sleeping better and not hindered during the day.
Best of luck, lack of sleep can be an aggravating and can definitely affect quality of life.
