Hi,

Im on Strattera now for 11 weeks (last 2,5 week on 100 mg)
I am also on 15 mg mirtazapine now for 1,5 years and seroquel 75 instant release (to sleep)

I think only Strattera helps me. Mirtazapine and seroquel makes me fatique and helps me sleep.
My sleep is getting better since i'm on 100 mg Strattera.
I'm scared to quit the Mirtazapine, because my mood is getting better the last weeks (i'm sure it is the Strattera) but my libido is decreased while i'm on the 100 mg strattera. 80 mg it was pretty good...
I'm also sweating very fast! I think it's a little bit more since i have started the Strattera.

Can it be the combination of Mirtazapine and Strattera that causes libido issues? Because of the interaction?

I don't know what to do...

In general, Mirtazapine is not know for causing issues with libido.

That said, Strattera certainly is, as well as disturbances in arousal and nature/ability to orgasm, and 100mg is no small dose.


Cheers,
Ian

Thank you.
Maybe i need to decrease to 80 mg.
Does it make sense to split up the dose? I have seen that on this forum.

Or maybe I need to have patience...

Good results for me when splitting the medication 40 mg in the morning / 40 mg in the afternoon.

Does the split up helps with the sexual issues or??
