2 doctors agree

In brief: No direct answer

These are 2 different drugs.
Again, there is "no better than" or "as good as". Treatment of any disorder should be individualized. I would think that Remeron (mirtazapine) is more often prescribed for sleep disorders where as Amitriptyline is more often prescribed for pain when talking about these 2 conditions specifically.
