I have been taking mirtazapine for five years. I have had great results. Few side effects: dry mouth is a constant. My sleep is o.k.

For about 1.5 months I take 15mg at night, if I take it too late I don't get up until about 9am so I try to take it at about 8:30pm.

I started taking Mirtazapine a few months ago for depression. My depression is still present but I sleep like a new born which I enjoy since I am depressed. The medicine kicks in right away. The only other side effect aside from it not working for my depression is horrible dreams. I also have to get at least 12 hours of sleep in order to function during the day.

I have been taking it for 2 years. I sleep all night for the first time in my life. Not sure how effective it work for depression because I am on other meds for depression also. Since I began taking my sex drive is zero. My doctor started me on 15mg per day and now I am on 60mg.
