Ramble about Remeron..


Recommended Posts

Ok so the doc just added another pill to my cocktail of drugs, Remeron. I have never taken this med before, this will be my first night on 15mg.

Anyone take this drug? What are your experiences with it? Does it give you the munchies and a 6 pack belly (not the good kind either, more like a beer 6 pack if you catch my drift)?

She is adding this to help me sleep and to treat my major depressive disorder, as well as anxiety. Will it help me with those?

Thanks in advance :)

I took it for a month or so. It helped with depression, but not anxiety, so we dropped it. It's the best thing I've ever used for sleep, too. I think I also started out at 15mg, and yeah, the first night I took it I ate an entire box of wheat thins, and I felt stoned. But that was just the first night. The next day, I felt a little sedated but that literally only lasted one day. I did NOT gain any weight on it. After that first night I just ignored the hungry feeling. I wish I could do that now. Heh. This is just my experience. I was also running while I was on it. I was very happy back then.

good luck! I hope it helps!

I took Remeron 30mg per night in the past for sleep and it did work for me for that purpose. The only problem for me with it was that it helped trigger a manic episode so I had to go off of it to help reduce the episode. My Clozaril was increased since then and that's what helps me to sleep now.
