I've been on mirtazapine for depression now for a five days. I must say I've been getting good sleep at night and the dreams are quite normal, to date. I've always had fairly good control of my appetite and have not experience any out of the ordinary hunger for food episodes. Thus far, anxiety, irritability, and mood swings have been in check.

Comment:
I was prescribed this for depression yesterday. I should take my 1st 15 mg dose at bedtime today. Now, I'm hesitant as I'm on Ativan for anxiety as well. Thanks all for your comments.

It was all very ... Show Full Comment
