I was prescribed remeron, (mirtazapine) for sleep problems and also hope to knock out situational depression with it. 30mg daily. Is this a good medication?

In brief: Good med
This is a good medication and you are taking a reasonable dose.
Side effects to watch out for include sedation and weight gain. Work closely with your physician to find the optimal dose for you.

It's a great medication for a lot of people, but it's not for everyone. No one medication works for everyone anyway.
