    remeron stopped working, does increasing dose really help

    I have had OCD all my life.I actually found it amusing, it was mild. Then I was told I might have cancer 4 years ago. In the 2 months it took to have surgery to find out it was negative, I became a severe hypochondriac. I have issues with every med, as I think the side effects are a new disease. To top if off, I was given Gabapentin and developed a pulmonary embolism, an extremely rare side effect Benzos help, but I withdrew once and will now only use them intermittently.

    This summer my anxiety raged, I made MD appointments (all at differnet MDs) every week and ignored and even snapped at my kids. So, I finally asked for help. So, I started to see a psychologist and was given remeron 7.5 mg. Overnight it halted my anxiety for a few days, then for 4 weeks, it helped by at least 50%.

    Now it is back and I have been to the MD office (rotating docs again) weekly for obsessing about different moles. She will let me go up and the terrible side effect have abated after 2 months( weight gain, --stabilized at 5 lbs gain and constipation)

    Has anyone had Remeron stop working, gone to a higher dose and have lasting results?
