Waking up dead! Mirtazapine messed with anyone else’s sleep patterns?


New Here
My GP has me back on Mirtazapine again. They really arn't doing anything apart from scaring the crap out of me two or three times a night. I wake up and it feels like my heart has stopped and I'm not breathing. The time distortion is a bit odd but it seems like an age passes before i can breathe again. GP says it's just messing with my sleep patterns. Anyone else had this ?


I take mirtazapine 45mg at night. It doesn't make me feel better but it does help me sleep. Sometimes have weird dreams. Last week the put me on escitalopram in the morning which helps alot.
