    I know I'm not particularly liked around this section of TSR but hopefully since I'm asking a genuine question about the medication I'm on; differences can be put aside

    My GP is thinking of lowering my Mirtazapine dose from 30mg to 15mg in the hope that it'll be less sedating after my exams; this contradicts what I previously thought? I thought Mirtazapine was less sedating with the higher doses and more sedating with the lower doses?

    I just wondering if anyone could shed any light on this as 30mg is still making me very zombie-like

    Thanks

    Is it possible that your GP is just untrained in this? They generally don't have the best mental health training. Every psychiatrist I've seen has said mirtazapine is less sedating at higher doses.
