 3  Chronic anxiety and depression Increased anxiety and agitation leading to violent morning panic attacks. Increased appetite. Started taking Remeron 15 MG a day in the evening for my chronic anxiety, depression and insomnia following a stroke. Was effective for insomnia but didn't do anything for depression. I noticed that my anxiety increased every morning and I had panic attacks around 11 am every day. My doctor wanted me to increase to 22.5 MG at first but I made it only for 2 days because the agitation was incredible. I am sorry for having to change this ad since it is good for my insomnia and lack of appetite. I had tried it an year ago for 20 days and it caused similar morning anxiety (no panic attacks) and probably trouble swallowing (which I posted here). 68 30 days

 5  Psychosis, Insomnia Apathy, high triglyceride levels, vivid dreams, prolonged nighttime erection. I started taking this after suffering a psychosis caused by an antibiotic (clarithromycin). Remeron is the only medicine that allowed me to regain an almost natural sleep. It put a stop to the paranoia, the auditory hallucinations and the general anxiety. In retrospect it probably saved my life. I started with 15 MG at bedtime. The side effects will hit you first (deep sleep, vivid dreams, general apathy) but most of them go away after a couple of months. The general apathy is the most annoying side effect but I'd rather have that than the confused restless state I was in prior to taking Remeron. I'm not out of the wood yet but at least I see a light at the end of the tunnel. Another side effect is that my triglyceride levels have trebled so I have to take another drug to control that (I take something called Artechol, which is some kind of natural statin, it works pretty well without side effects).

 2  Depression I was never disappointed in the drug until I stopped taking it. It has some severe withdrawal symptoms. I stopped taking it because my GP more or less told me to; some recent blood tests indicated my liver was under strain and he thinks remeron is the likely culprit. I do not drink or take other drugs, so I think he is likely right. Anyhow, since I stopped taking it, I only sleep one REM cycle and then wake up wired at 3-4 in the morning. It's making for some pretty weird days. I also have a constant headache. The withdrawal symptons only strengthen my resolve to stop taking it. I don't think I am actually depressed or in danger of reverting to some unstable state. I was teenager that was getting into trouble when I started taking it. I was an unstable teenage, but 15 years later I'm a pretty stable person, I don't think I need this medication and am sorry I took it for so long, but quitting it is going to be much harder than I thought. People need their sleep. M 34 15 years

 1  Depression/anxiety Not 100% sure how long i was taking it, meds have ruined my memory a bit. Vivid/erradic/relistic dreams, stopped taking it a year or so ago (i think) and still have the problem. Makes waking up incredibly hard, as if it's hard to adjust to this reality after spending so much time in another, wake up with unclear mind, no concentration etc I can't make a judgment if you should take it, but i will say i deeply regret ever having touched this medicine, ruined my life ever since taking it M 23 2 months

 5  Depression, anxiety, insomnia not just restless legs -I called it "restless body" Cannot take the medicine at bedtime as directed. Although I do feel very sleepy after taking it, I cannot rest because of the irresitble muscle urges in my abdomninal muscles and legs. Makes me quite sleepy for about 1 hour after taking. Increased appetite- have gained about 10 pounds in 3 months. I was prescribed this drug after a period of suicidal ideation (probably from high dose of Neurontin, which I started taking for pain.) It took a while for remeron to kick in with me but I feel almost back to my normal self. i still do experience pain, but it is not as intense and I don't "care about it" or obsess on it the way I did before. So remeron has helped me cut back on my pain medication significantly. I also do not need any sleeping aide or tranquilizer any more. I am very satisfied with Remeron. I take one in the morning (which my doc thinks is weird) and one while I'm fixing dinner. cannot take at bedtime due to the AWFUL restless "everything" it gives me. F 51 90 days
