    Anyone tried Remeron?

    A friend of mine swears by this stuff but I never hear about it on these boards.
    Maybe it has been posted and I just missed it.
    I am at my witts end trying to find a med that will help me.
    I have Agoraphobia with Panic attacks. Buspar is not working anymore and I can't function on Ativan or valume. I have two young kids to drive all over and take care of!
    Had bad angry reaction to Zoloft as well as Elavil and now I am scared to try anything....
    Any Advice?

    Tried Remeron. Slept ALL THE TIME and wanted to eat sugar right out of the bag! I never eat sugar, it was weird for me.

    I tried Remeron and same thing -- slept ALL THE TIME and couldn't stop eating. When I was awake, I was really foggy and out of it.

    I also tried Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil......and am now on Effexor XR. I'm really happy with it.

    Excellent! I'm on 25mg of Zoloft, working well for me. Also take 400mg of SAM-e.

    Peace,

    Benji

    Re: Anyone tried Remeron?

    I'm into my second week of Remeron, with 10 mg of Lexapro. I am hungry all the time and am exhausted a lot too. I need to take it early in the evening, around 8pm, so I won't be too tired in the morning. I've been sleeping straight through my alarm clock - my husband has to wake me up. It must be the Remeron, I've never had these kinds of issues with Lexapro.

    Re: Anyone tried Remeron?

    Thanks for the info!!! I am tired enough as it is.
    I am on Buspar and it makes me tired and want to eat sugar too?
    Also give me the strangest dreams of my life!!
    Lord I hope they come out with something fast!!!
    It either amps you out or makes you tired.
    Did Lexapro cause weight gain?
    I go to Dr. next Friday and want to be armed with as much info as possible.
    Also would like info on Celxa.
    I hated Zoloft and Elavil and I had a good friend crawling out of his skin on Effexor. It got so bad his wife was going to leave him! Needless to say I am scared to try it as well.

    Re: Anyone tried Remeron?

    What I have learned is that everybody is different. SAM-e and Zoloft work for me, but others have had terrible experiences on Zoloft.

    Remeron made me tired and crave sugar. Welbutrin made me hypo-manic. Eliville made me sleep for days. Buspar made me soooo depressed.

    Am curious about other SSRI's like Lexipro and Paxil.

    In any case, good luck with your trials and I hope you find what works for YOU!

    Re: Anyone tried Remeron?

    At least I am not the only one having adverse reactions to these meds!
    Some of them that are prescribed for "depression" made me depressed.
    I don't really have depression only in regards to the panic attacks and aniexty!
    I will let you guys know what the Dr. say's this time!

    Re: Anyone tried Remeron?s l e e p !

    Hi,
    After tapering of that effexor XR poison, that stuff is EVIL! A great anti-depessant but the 'white man's Vodoo' practioneers neglect to emphasize,
    Once your on it, like heroin, you're hooked. You have to taper off and even then, it's bad! I was plagued with insomnia, 'till I went on REMERON. Now, I sleep well, just be careful about sweets!
