I've been taking Remeron (Mirtazapine) since last August, 15mg. I've had a good experience with in.

In the beginning, it helped with sleep and since I've been on it I haven't had any major panic attacks. Recently though, I've been struggeling with with some new health related anxiety that has given me some insomnia. I have a difficult time falling asleep and the Remeron sedative effect that the low dose had when I first started is gone. I don't really get sleepy after I take it anymore. I have been taking 1mg of Xanax (per my Dr. instruction) before bed and it kind of works. I don't want to make a habit of taking that for sleep though and I was wondering what other people might take to help them sleep along with the Remeron? I was thinking Tylenol PM, my Dr. said that would be ok, he doesn't want to prescribe me any sleep aids. What works??

Any advice? Thank you!!
