Is Mirtazapine better than Restoril?

mirtazapine and zoloft. I am currently on a 50mg zoloft, this is my second week on zoloft. I have been taking restoril for sleep about a month and a half (15mg). Sometimes I have to take two to sleep. I am also on Xanon .25mg three times daily. I am being treated for prostatitis infection about six weeks now. I am wondering how safe mirtazapine is compared to restoril.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Mirtazapine improves your mood and helps you sleep better, but can cause more weight gain than any other antidepressant.It is ffective at relieving some depression symptoms.

Restoril (Temazepam) is a good short-term option to help you sleep, but it shouldn't replace good sleep habits. It helps you fall asleep and stay asleep.
Can be helpful to reduce anxiety.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
