Comment:
I have tried several different antidepressants, with not much satisfaction for 10 years. Then 4 years ago, my doctor gave me a combination of mirtazapine and citalopram. It has worked well for me now for 4 years.

Comment:
This medication made me very sleepy, to the point that I could sleep 14 hours on 7.5 mgs, and be dragging for another 4 or 5 hours. I would perk up around dinner time and then start all over two hours later. Made the depression worse to the point that I was planning a suicide. Stopped taking it two days ago, still feel depressed, but I am not going to kill myself.

I had insomnia for YEARS then went on Remeron and have been able to sleep within an hour of going to bed and staying asleep all night. I wake up refreshed and in a good mood. I take it about a half hour before bedtime with my Valproic Acid. I have gained about 35 pounds in 2.5 years and not sure which drug is the cause of that. I do consider this a MIRACLE DRUG for me.

Comment:
Everyone's body chemistry is different. For me, this drug was a nightmare. I had researched medications to combat anxiety-based insomnia and thought this was going to be the solution -- one pill to counter depression/anxiety and insomnia. This wasn't the case for me. When I took the lowest dosage (15mg) I experienced heart flutters and severe dizziness (think being on top of a roller coast ... Show Full Comment
