Hello I am taking the antidepressant called MIRTAZAPINE 1/2 of 15MG every evening. It helps me to sleep much better but always get bad or sad dream. Why does this medicine affect my thought of being sad or paranoid? Will it get away if I continue taking it for many weeks? I ve taken it resuming last week.

Hello, I started taking mirtazapine in late December. I was on a steady 30 mg dose. I have missed my period the last two months, and have taken three pregnancy tests to rule that out. My psychiatrist doesn t think that it is a side effect of the medicine, but I ve read in multiple places that it is. My periods have never been very regular but this is out there even for me. Thanks!

My doctor has prescribed Mirtazapine 15mg for me as I have lost a lot of weight and have less energy than I like. I already take Trazadone for insomnia. Reading the side affects of this new rx causes me concerns. I have had seizure activity in the past due to a benign brain tumor now removed. I also have hx of unifocal pvc s. Should I be concerned or take the rx as recommended?
