Does mirtazapine help with

…negative symptoms? I’ve heard citalopram does, and I’m on it and it seems to help but my pdoc is thinking of switching me over to mirtazapine because I’m taking it too, for sleep. Does it help with negative symptoms too?

According to that article it does.

Interesting thank you @everhopeful . But according to that it seems to help only with lifting negative symptoms caused by first generation AP’s (like haloperidol I’m taking). So if I take only second generation AP’s like amisulpride, it won’t make any difference.

On the other hand, amisulpride at higher dose (I take 500mg now) helps a lot with negative symptoms so as long as my anxiety and depression is under control, it’s ok
