Ophelia12 Posted April 16, 2012 Share Posted April 16, 2012 I've been using Remeron for a couple weeks. The 15 mg made me so tired that I wasn't functional. My doctor told me to go ahead and go up to 30 mg. It's a little better, but still causes daytime drowsiness. It seems like it's working on my depression though. I'm wondering if there's another TCA that I may have less problems with, or if there's something I can add to the Remeron to counteract the drowsiness. I don't tolerate SSRI's. We tried several of them, which caused horrible side effects for me, and that's why we moved onto TCA's. I also have IBS-D so anything with a high possibility of causing diarrhea may not be a good option. My GI doc actually recommended TCA's because they can be constipating. I have depression, OCD and anxiety. The only other med I'm taking is Xanax 0.25 mg prn. I was taking Temazpam 15 mg also for insomnia, but obviously I haven't needed that since starting the Remeron. The last couple antidepressants I tried had caused insomnia. I also take Levsin, Zofran, Flonase and Claritin daily. My doctor wants to be able to find something that I can tolerate, that is not addictive. She only wants me taking Xanax until we find a good regimen. I'm not opposed to taking more than one med if it works for me, and I can tolerate it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
