 3  Insomnia Rapid heartbeat My doctor put me on this because it has a similar effect of Trazodone and he thought it would help me sleep. It made my heart beat faster than normal in the mornings, though this wore off during the day. It was still an unpleasant side effect while it lasted. It was also not very powerful as a sedative, though I'm sure it was better than nothing. I got off it because my doctor didn't like how high my pulse was when I came in for a checkup. M 29 2 months

 1  Chronic Insomnia For the first three years, I didn't have side effects. I gained about 4 pounds. It helped me sleep. The past two years were increasingly difficult, violent nightmares, horrible and muscle pain. My Dr. didn't think it was the remeron, but he was wrong, it was the cause. I chose to go off the drug and it is a living nightmare. The first week was fine, I slept pretty well, didn't notice much difference. But one week into it, everything went haywire. i couldn't sleep or if I did for a few hours I couldn't stay asleep. Terrible allergies, hot flashes, abdominal pain. My guts were like cement. This lasted about a month and I spent a lot of time in bed. The 2nd month had all the withdrawal symptoms except abdominal pain. Ginger capsules helped with that a lot. Now its been about 10 weeks and I'm down to insomnia but not nearly as bad as previous. I regret staying on the drug so long and would never recommend taking it. Do not stop this drug suddenly.

 3  sleep, anxiety, depression, apetite weight gain, sleepiness which were both helpful for my case. felt like i was not all there. my vision seemed like it was different hard to describe. almost like it was delayed. i couldnt drive after taking it for a while or going off it. made my anxiety worse. felt like i was having panic attacks more often. felt like i couldnt breathe and my heart would beat fast. this all could have been from going off zoloft cold turkey 3 days prior to taking remeron. had to go back on zoloft. this stuff seemed to make me feel worse than i already was. i did help great with helping me eat and sleep. i think i gained about 10lbs in a month which was greatly needed. i had to go back on zoloft because i couldnt handle how i was feeling. i might try it again without going off zoloft cold turkey.

This stuff to me is worse than any street drug. The withdrawal has been hell and a nightmare. Sure it helps you sleep. But wait there is a big price to pay.

 3  Depression/Anxiety Not sure...Feel a little speedy at times and anxious but that could be more to do with the fact that I came off Citalopram 4 days ago as I started this. Was on Citalopram for 8 weeks and it made my head whizz at a million miles per hour,nothing making sense,just total fear. I already had bad anxiety and it made it so much worse that I just wanted to die. I am hoping this has a slowing down effect while helping lift the depression and negative thoughts. It's early days so I will keep posting but for now,I feel a little better and the intrusive thoughts are a little easier to deal with. Hoping they disappear completely soon xxx F 38 4 days

It worked really fast, ending suicidal ideation and weeping in days. The weight gain is real, I picked up 10 pounds in two months despite running 3-4 times per week. It seemed to peak pretty quickly, I felt great the first two weeks, but the AD effect faded and sides increased. I've stopped taking it and don't feel any worse. M 41 2 months

 3  Suicidal tendency Slept great for the first few weeks, without being "knocked-out", but getting much better rest and waking up at a decent hour, ready for a good day to happen. Started eating again, and had my first menstrual cycle in over a year, along with healthy weight gain. Starting to have cognitive problems, becoming very easily irritated, not sleeping so well, intense cravings for junk food. I was put on a 15mg/d dose after a 3-day ICU vacation, which resulted from a suicide attempt during my abusive marriage. Three months of separation, on this dose, and with my family, later..my dose has been recently doubled to 30mg/d and I'm feeling dazed and generally un-enthused. This was the reason why my dose was doubled, but I'm not sure that I want to depend on a higher dose of Remeron to fix it..? F 19 3 months

I've been in a deep depression with physical symptoms that I had never experienced before, like extreme fatigue and constant stomach pain. This was in addition to the usual hopelessness, guilt, lack of interest and suicidal ideation. All of those symptoms are gone, and the side effects are tolerable. M 41 14 days

 1  Sleep/Depression I thought I got nerve damage from an lumbar injection from the same time I started this. Numbness in extremeties. Extremely life-altering. I'm terrified the symptoms aren't reversible. When the heat is on, for example, I'm freezing. When it's cool my skin feels like it's on fire. Just spoke to pharmacologist and he never heard of this! ?? Apparently not a benign drug, to say the least. I have no history of exceptional side effects to anything and I've been all all kinds of psych drugs over 35 years. I would love to hear that this is reversible. Please. F 57 5 weeks

 2  Insomnia Emotional detachment, indifference, restless legs, itch, loss of creativity and initiative. With persistent secondary insomnia this was supposed to help me quit the hypnotics. Unfortunately I started having restless legs and also found that I get this now with all the other "psycho" meds that are supposed to help you sleep. I'm also in theory against taking anit-depressents if you don't suffer from a clinical depression but just feel a bit low because of a chronic condition and insomnia. As a creative person in touch with their feelings I found this an unaccepable drug although I was able to get off the benzos while I was on it.. F 47 5 months

 2  Dysthymic Disorder Insatiable, persistent hunger. Deep sleep. Weight gain. Joint pain. Muscle pain. Feeling of heaviness. Strong erections. This is a good drug if you have problems sleeping and/or are underweight. I gained twenty pounds in five weeks. I had to stop taking it because it made me feel very heavy. It made my joints crack constantly. It made my muscles feel like they were burning whenever I stretched. I couldn't run because of the joint pain in my knees and ankles. When getting up from the sofa or going down the stairs it was as if I were 80 years old because I felt so stiff with joint pain. It didn't give my sex drive a boost but my erections were stronger than when I wasn't taking it. My mood never lifted. I really liked it at first but after a while the constant hunger becomes annoying. I slept like a baby on it, though. 8-10 hours of uninterrupted sleep a night. I can only recommend it to those who can't sleep and/or are underweight. Other than those two things, it did nothing but make my body sick. M 42 5 weeks

 1  Severe insomnia Serious weight gain, extreme hunger and cravings for carbohydrates, lethargy, fatigue, just feeling awful in general, severe dementia like cognitive problems. I took this drug in 2007, was on it for 6 months. Then had to taper down for 1 year using a liquid version because the withdrawals were horrible. After having been off it for over 5 years, I still suffer from side effects that never went away: really bad cognitive problems and short term memory problems (I had to drop out of my PhD program in Economics because I couldn't do even the simple math anymore), I never lost the fat that I gainedon my legs (legs were my strongest body part and now they are fat no matter how much I exercise and I eat ridiculously healthy), it permanently ruined my sleep quality and since I took remeron I have never ever had good quality sleep, ever since, not one night but I always wake up feeling as if I never really slept. Remeron destroyed my life forever. F 38 1.5 years

 1  Depression & Insomnia Chronic Fatigue, Diahrrea every day, abdominal pain, weight loss, itching all over, hair loss, dry eyes, sinusitis, rashes, acne, loss of co ordination, depersonalization, panic attacks & anxiety (never used to be an issue), nausea, vomiting, apathy, suicidal thoughts, irritability, weakness, no energy at all, ear infections, dizziness, anaemia, sun sensitivity (never used to burn even in tropical countries... Now I get freckles from 10 minutes in the sun in the UK!) This drug has ruined my life!! Only should be used very short term to help you sleep, it causes all sorts of horrible problems which go unreported because drs will try & tell us we have a hundred other health problems which are unrelated to Mirtazapine when they definitely are! I'm coming off them but the withdrawal is BAD! Drs lied about that part. It has taken 6 months so far and I am almost off them! I really hope the horrible side effects go away soon after I stop because otherwise I may lose my job. Please think very carefully before accepting a script for this, I have totally lost 3 years of my life at a crucial time of development. I have been in hospital because of having diahrrea every single day for over a year!! They think its crohns but there's no evidence for that I just know its Mirtazapine!!! F 21 3 years

 2  Chronic, resistant depression Strange, sleep disorders, such as hypnogogic hallucinations and yelling out in my sleep which would freak out those around me...only one of two drugs to do this to me (the other being Manerix). Generally feeling like a slug which resulted in eventual weight gain Let me preface this review by saying that my case is not typical since I've suffered from depression and anxiety for most of my life, and it has become more resistant to treatment since I hit my forties. So I tried Remeron, hoping it would be effective since it affects both serotonin and norepinephrine and has a unique method of action. Well the results were less than stellar, even at the high dose, it didn't really seem to help my mood at all. I didn't get the dreaded weight gain until I'd been on it for several weeks...which is usually the reverse of what happens but it wasn't that bad so not everyone will gain weight. I just felt apathetic and lazy which is probably the reason for the weight gain more than anything else. As mentioned it occasionally gave me some freaky effects while on the verge of sleep which was reason enough to discontinue it. I even tried it in combination with Effexor....the so called "Rocket Fuel" combo without much success. It could be I didn't give the combo enough time in retrospect...As far as it being more activating at higher doses, that was not the case for me as it never made me feel energized and I could have easily slept well into the afternoon. May be good for those whose depression is related to their sleep problems. M 43 90 days

 5  Depression, insomnia Extreme weight gain (20 lbs). I ran 3+ miles, 4xj week...couldn't drop the lbs. I also felt foggy, similar to a bad hangover (minus headache/nausea). The grogginess usually cleared up after 1-2 hrs. This med worked like a champ. for sucking me out of the depression I was in. It was also had the most wonderful sleep aide side effect. I slept 8-10 hrs...no matter what. I would advise taking it early if you need to wake up for school or work. M 30 1 years

 5  Anxiety/ Insomnia Food craving - cant stop eating, digestive problems - mild If you are in a state of deep depression or severe anxiety, insomnia, loss of appetite, this is the drug to take. I've started on 7.5mg at night and it knocked me out for 15 hours. I think it will knock out a horse as well. I gradually went up to 15mg and now on 22.5 mg. Minimal side effects - cant stop eating. This drug is perfect for skinny people suffering with anxiety and loss of appetite. You have to combine with SSRI for optimal effect. I'm on 10mg lorien as well. Works a treat. I think I will use this medication for the rest of my life in consultation with my doctor. Why suffer in these difficult times we living in. M 45 3 months

 1  Depression It made me sleep all the time and unable to wake up. I got irritated and annoyed about everything the first 3 weeks. It made me have no filter in what I would say to everyone. I felt numb to any kind of other emotions such as happiness. I then got angry and felt destructive .. I ended up breaking over $6000 worth of my belongings being on this medication and almost arrested. I had contacted my doctor before the outburst and they told me to go to a walk in clinic, I also called after the outburst and got the same answer .. I felt extremely alone at that point and refused to continue taking it. After taking it, I finally felt guilt for the outburst and honestly mortified ! I do not recommend anyone taking this. It can cause some serious side effects so, unless you are being observed by a doctor and monitored 24/7, don't take it. I was never violent or angry my entire life, except on this drug, and now, after taking it I am fine ...? F 23 2 months

It enhances your antidepressant and helps you sleep soundly and fights anxiety (mind you, I took 1/2 of usually prescribed starting dose). Trying to get off it? PURE HELL. Sweats, tremors, suicidal thoughts, extremely high anxiety, all known side effects of withdrawal but from 7.5 MILLIGRAMS? If you need it, take it.

 5  insomnia Drowsiness, but that's what's intended. An hour or so after taking this med, I will want to eat lots of sour candy. You will literally eat sugar out of the bag. I do not think this has caused me any weight gain, as this effect does NOT carry over into the morning/next day. For me, it's an inducer of a mandatory midnight treat, but that's all. I am skinny by nature, and have remained so on this drug. Give this med a chance, it's disguised as a really nasty side-effect-laden drug at first, but give it at least a week to get past it's initial nastiness to judge if it's right for you. I felt like an absolute apathetic zombie the first two days I took this med (just 15 mg at the time). It was all smooth sailing after that though. Excellent sleep med after trazodone pooped out. It takes about an hour to hit me. I still need to take an SSRI for anxiety -- the remeron alone wasn't enough. An SSRI + Remeron may be a good combination for treatment-resistant depression. Does not cause sexual dysfunction like other AD's (specifically the SSRI/SNRI class of drugs). Buproprion is the alternative (may actually be sexually enhancing). Buproprion is the antithesis of remeron in terms of sedation/stimulation though. M 22 5 years

 1  Anxiety, chronic worry Insomnia: I would fall asleep deeply for three hours, then wake up and toss and turn, awake off and on for the rest of the night. Weird, vivid dreams, some frightening, some fun. NUMBNESS/APATHY: I felt calm and not anxious at all, but I also felt totally numb. My boyfriend and I were having sex, and although I responded physically, I was so detached from him emotionally that I couldn't go through with it. We had to stop and talk out my numbness. ANGER and HOSTILITY toward my boyfriend. I was just angry and pissed at him all week, started fights and was unreasonable. Felt like I suddenly wanted to break up with him because all of his faults were intolerable and our relationship issues were not worth working through. This drug really calmed me down and made me much less anxious. But, that was only because I felt NOTHING. I literally felt numb, and when I wasn't feeling numb, I was feeling self-righteous anger. I stopped taking it and immediately felt back to my normal self -- including anxiety, but I'd rather be anxious than a raging, destructive bitch. F 43 3 days

 5  Anxiety/Insomnia 1st year slight weight gain (10lbs.), lost it in year 2. No side effects anymore. My body must have gotten used to it over time because this drug continues to help my sleep and concentration. I have taken brand tablet, brand soltab, & every generic available. I stopped for about 6 months, didn't die, but missed it. I recommend using Wiki to read about how it works. It is no worse than ssri side effects or withdrawal effects. I don't drink and every year my liver/blood is fine. 15mg a night always works & 1 last thing, brand IS stronger otherwise Teva & Greenstone are good generics. Sandoz & Auerobindo not as good IMO.

 3  Depression Constipation and sleepiness (I like this side effect) on 15 mg; Voracious appetite and zapped of energy on 30 mg. I started on 15 mg of Remeron 3 weeks ago. I slept amazingly well the first night. The next day on Remeron I had this "euphoric" feeling, as though all my cylinders were firing, and I was myself - happy and free. Best.day.ever. It only lasted that day. :( I did not expect it to last and I dont' know why I had those feelings . I am not sure it is helping with my depression at 15 mg. I incresed it to 30 mg 4 days ago and it zonked me out sleep wize. It also felt drained of energy, as if I could not move all day. I took 30 mg for 2 nights and went back down to 15. I wasn't going to succumb myself to that one more day. I am not sure this med is for me, but I love it for sleep! F 52 3 weeks

 5  Anxiety/PTSD/Insomnia I know a lot of people have said this gives them nightmares ect, but in reality, they ate actually reaching REM sleep. After having insomnia, I was put on a maintenance dose, and found that the first month I did have nightmares and dreams. But this was because I was actually sleeping. It takes a while to really get the full effect. No drug is a wonder drug. Everyone's body is different. I stopped having really crazy dreams after about 3 weeks. Weight gain- well I have gained 10 lbs in a year. It does slow down your metabolism, but with proper diet and exercise, you should be fine. I am in the military and in the healthcare field,.so I was pretty well informed about the side effects. This drug, like any other is not one to be judged in a week or two. Like other antidepressants, it takes 2-6 weeks to really get your body adjusted. My advice, if it still doesn't really work after 2 months, then try something else. But give it at least that amount of time. It's worth the try. F 32 1 years

 4  Anxiety and Depression Extreme sleepiness- solved after reducing dosage to 30 mg, as long as I didn't have to be up too early. Dry mouth. Oh well., I can live with that CRAZY vivid , hallucinogenic, dreams the first week, then went away. Weight gain- wight has been piling up since I started. So, first thing: I am grateful this med is out there and was prescribed to me. It really save my life since I was unable to work, anxiety ridden, suicidal, unable to sleep or eat , exhausted and nauseous and throwing up every morning. I was also reluctant to go back to prozac and it numbed me emotionally. With this drug I got my sleep and appetite back, and the depression lifted enough that I could function- while at the same time being able to experience a normal range of emotion from sadness to joy. During this year I did have a few depressive episodes but adjusting the med helped ( I went back and forth between 15 and 45 mg with my psychiatrist's indications). It's amazing to sleep again, to eat again and not to wake up as if you're on plane that's crashing. Was able to resume yoga practice and that has also helped immensely. My main issue is I've piled up weight, and that is crashing my self-esteem, so my psychiatrist has reccommended wellbutrin. Feeling bummed I can't be off meds, but trying to take baby steps back to a place where I won't need them again. F 48 1 years

 3  depression Increased triglycerides to 550.....A VERY dangerous level.....you can get pancreatitis if you are not careful with triglicerides and that is deadly. went off it in a month gradually and after a month (2 months since i started tapering off) I checked my triglycerides and they had gone back down to 250...............a great sign. Hope soon to have my triglycerides return to normal around 150. This drug worked initially, made me feel great for about a month.............then i would get nausea (as my triglycerides must have skyrocketed and poisoned my blood serum) occasionally. M 37 1 years

 5  depression with anxiety and insomni Finally able to fall and stay asleep. Before taking remeron I was taking seroquel and trazodone. They did not help me sleep any PERIOD. I take Soltab at bedtime and rest a good 8 hous and do not wake. It has caused my life to become normal for once. It will make you drowsy at first in the mornings but soon goes away after about a month. I now wake refreshed and not so hungover as many meds have made me. I had not slept good in over two years due to problems from PTSD from being a retired veteran where I witnessed to black side of war. I would have nightmares when I would briefly doze off and would have the same nightmares like I was still trapped behind enemy lines. My wife is now able to sleep since I do not get up all hors of the night looking for and intruder in the yard. I shot my neighbors dog thinking it was an insurgent trying to case out my home. I spent 30 days in jail and didn'y sleep a wink and now I use a pellet gun to shoot the dogs since now I know they are only trying to see what why I am out in the yard at wee hours of the night screaming to my platoon to "take cover", 'ememy spotted 5 o'clock.... My psychotris says I should scald the dogs with hot bleach water and give them antifreeze on bread to tide them over until reinforcements can arrive. Soltab has save my life and my platoon and the neighborhood dogs if they stay out of the bait stations since they are so poor, they sometime go for the sntifreeze even though I have marked the sites with skulls and crossbones signs, but M 43 6 years

 5  Severe major depression/anxiety Dizzy first couple of days. Slight increase in sugar cravings but controllable. My 16 year old daughter was hospitalized for suicidal thoughts, severe major depression and anxiety. She was given 15mg remeron at bedtime and 20 mg Celexa in mornings. All I can say is wow! She was like a different person in 2 days. I didn't expect such quick results as therapeutic dosage has not been reached with Celexa. She sleeps well and deep. Has energy, no anxiety. She is craving sweets some, but is able to control the eating. No weight gain so far. She says she feels like she is living her life for the first time ever. I have never seen her so relaxed and happy. For all the negative comments...I would say its worth a try because for some people this is a miracle drug. F 16 2 weeks
