i ve been taking metaz for about five weeks now and i m due to up my dose to 45 mg from 30 tom nite. Have to say i m actually starting to feel better, i was taking doxepin with the mirtaz originally but i ve been slowly weaned off those. Currently taking diazepam for anxiety and temazepam to help me sleep-was having really disturbing dreams, much like those described in most of the posts i ve read. The temazepam did help initially, but i ve been taking it for eight days now and just can t seem to stay asleep, which is really annoying cos i feel so knackered all of the time?? I ve gone thru the various stages of feeling completely numb to now feeling very irritable-is this a side effect of the mirtaz?? the weight things a bit of a worry, but guess nearly everyone on here has the same problem with that?
