Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
I understand that you have been having sleep problems and you are on Remeron
. Remeron (Mirtazapine
) is an antidepressant medication which is used to treat depression
. It also has sedative properties, in addition.
I'm not sure why you were started on an anti-depressant and whether you were suffering from depressive symptoms. If this is the case, then I would suggest that you review with your doctor before attemting to change or alter your medication. There are other anti-depressants which have lesser sedative effects. So, please discuss with your doctor about these options.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
