    Just been prescribed mirtazapine.

    Does anyone have any experience of this drug? Apparently it's quite new.

    It's a good drug. It will make you drowsy so you might want to take at night
    When all else fails, use glitter instead

    It's been around for a few years now. I definitely agree that it's best to take at night.

    Yeah I was told that. I read somewhere that it's best not to drive in the first couple of days until it settles down. Is that worthwhile?

    I think you need to play it by ear. Everybody reacts differently - you may be ok to drive, you may not. You need to judge for yourself if you're feeling too drowsy to drive (or ask someone close to you how they think you're feeling)

    Absolutely see how you feel - everyone reacts differently and have different tolerances

    Yes everyone is different but I found it awful and my symptoms worsened but as I said everyone is different.

    So that's a couple of days on it. How do I feel?

    Absolutely shattered. Sleeping so much and don't want to wake up. My appetite is back ten fold, but my stomach is not quite used to having a lot of food yet but hopefully that will settle down.

    Just needs to sort my head out now.
