PLEASE tell me this gets better!!

Hi All,

I just started on 15 mg of Mirtazapine (Remeron) today--have to cut 30 mg tablet in half. My dr. informed me to take it right away when I get home from work (which happened to be 3 am) because I work 12 hour midnight shift. It is now 4:30 pm and I still feel like I am stoned out of my skull and could probably sleep a week straight!! Luckily I am off work the next 4 days because I don't think I could function in this state!! Someone PLEASE tell me this gets better??!!
I started this medication because I am having ALOT of anxiety and panic attacks lately...had them for a while but they have gotten 1000x worse.

The side effects should go away, but who knows how long it takes. Why don't you ask your doctor for something else for anxiety and panic attacks. I doubt remeron is the best thing to try. I think it is better for depression.

I tried it too , only took 1- 15 mg , never took another .

That was the turning point for me , for taking controll of anxeity without meds .
