Remeron more sedating at lower doses
so far so good and am doing so under the advisement of a Psychiatrist.Higher doses of mirtazapine need to be done only witha dr's consent due to the mirtazapine effecting manic episodes. Most individuals are heavily sedated for the initiation of mirtazapine treatment.It is often prescribed off-label for sleep due to its sedative effects.However, Mirtazapine is completely unrelated to the benzodiazepines.
Mirtazapine, also known by its brand name as Remeron, is actually an older antidepressant.If side effects are bothering you, do not stop taking mirtazapine; contact your doctor, the dose likely needs adjustment.Mirtazapine must be discontinued very gradually and under close doctor supervision, as physical dependence will develop over time; this is especially important for patients who have used the drug at high doses and/or for long periods of time.Suddenly stopping mirtazapine may cause severe depression, insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, (all dysphoric states) loss of appetite, worsening of allergies and rarely, manic episodes.PJF I am currently on 600 mg of Seroquel and 30 mg of mirtazapine.
