I take it as and when needed, take 7.5 or even 3.75. Sometimes I can sleep unaided for 5 nights but then need to take it for a few nights, not too sure if it ok, some pharmacists say due to the small dose it is ok however some feel I should take it for a few weeks regular and then taper off it? I am not on any other mess and it is purely for getting off to sleep.

Mirtazapine is a tetracyclic antidepressant and may only help with sleep, because it can cause drowsiness, as a side effect.


Have either one of you consulted your doctors about using it in the manner you are?
