I am so glad to hear of someone else who had the same reaction that I had. Everyone else seems to love Remeron. I also was very irritable on Remeron and had to go off of it after only being on it for less than a week.

When I started Remeron I was on 15 mg, and I noticed a difference right away. My anxiety and depression were manageable and I felt myself again. My doc bumped it up to 30mg, and again, I felt myself and less anxious/depressed. About a week ago, my doc bumped me up to 45mg and now my anxiety is worse and I am feeling really depressed again! I don't understand how more of it would make me feel worse, but I'm so frustrated because I felt like I was on the right track and feeling better. Now I feel worse and back down to where I started

My step father takes it. He is such a different person now. He is happy, enjoying life has begun to be social with people, I wish he had been on it a long time ago. He has been on it 3 years and he is a very huge sucess story for remron
I absolutely HATED being on Remeron!!! The ONLY thing it was good for to me was that it would make me sleep but when i woke up my husband would actually have to help me out of bed because i was SO VERY dizzy from taking it(my dr prescribed it to be taken at night) and there were actually a few times that i fell down and hurt myself BEFORE my husband could get to me. Another BIG issue with the remeron with me was the weight gain.I only took it for about 2 months if that long and i gained around 60 pounds which my small body frame could not handle and i eventually ended up having to have BOTH of my knees replaced.So that is MY story about remeron but i have also heard good stories about it so i guess it just varies from each indiviual.Good Luck and Take Care of yourself!!!
