I have been suffering from depression and anxiety since 10 years. I went to a psychiatrist and he prescribed too many medicines, which made matters worse. My family doctor has put me on Mirtaz 7.5 and due to severe problems of falling asleep I am on Zolfresh 10. My depression is a little better as it has been 15 days, but still I am not being able to fall asleep. We have tried having the medicine earlier in the night so I sleep on time, but it does not help. I face erections problems too. Kindly suggest a medicine that works well with Mirtaz for falling asleep.
