User Comments about Mianserin
18 Jul 2016 Mianserin is great for anxiety, 10mg calms me, and gives me a great nights sleep..for depression 30mg one at night worked for me..only downside is feeling unsteady, but overtime this goes away..was on this drug for nearly 20 years, slowly tapered down to 5mg at night....would recommend this drug over ssri's for panic attacks...
