It's funny because I like I said before vaguely remember taking.
But, boy do I remember taking trazadone it knocked me out within 15 minute of taking it, wonder if it was placebo because its kicked in fasssst.
Even, more fatigue producing than TCA, like amtriptiline, there can be no way!
If I do not get my adderall I don't think I will be taking this med as I am so chronically fatigued it hard to hold my head up and coffee does not do a thing, and i don't drink it that much more anyways.
Sucks because the GI effects seemed to be too good to be true combined with the anti anxiety, anti depression effect. Every SSRI I tried only made my stomach worse.
One benefit that mirtazapine actually has when compared to common 5-HT3 antagonists, is that it has a long half life, this definetly works in your favour for GI problems, the other good thing is that its 5-HT3 antagonistic properties are pretty potent (unlike it's alpha 2 properties). So it may just be the case that you'll get by fine taking just 15 mg a day for insomnia and GI problems.
