Re: Remeron/Mirtazepine...anyone using this?

My son was on it for a while... he has PTSD among other things. My impression is that it made him zoned-out, like a little zombie... But then the psychologist we took him to (not the psychiatrist he had seen before he came to live with us) had him stop it, she said it was a medicine that should be used for adults, not children (although I believe Remeron is commonly prescribed to children).

So my experience with it has not been good, but obviously not everyone feels that way or it wouldn't be used.

Re: Remeron/Mirtazepine...anyone using this?

I started remeron 30mg about 5 days ago or so, it puts me to sleep pretty well, I switched from zyprexa to this. the doc wants it to enhance the paxil I am taking. biggest thing is the weight gain, oh and watch for rashes as that indicates a problem

Unhappy Re: Remeron/Mirtazepine...anyone using this?

Gained weight and was tired and kind of stupid-feeling a lot of the time. But as with anything, your mileage may vary.
