the remeron should be reducing your anxiety and panic attacks, if not ask doc about upping the dose
sometimes remeron simply never works or stops working after a while

lots of people are resistant to antibiotics, I am

Dear Donnauk,
Remeron, which I have taken as an additive for sleep is a depression medication to elevate mood, not an anxiety medication. It is actually used to help you function normally when having depressed states. If you are having panic attacks, Get another Doctor, a Psychratrist not an MD for your mental medications because your Doctor apparently does not know anything about anxiety or painc medications. I would get a new MD for your tonsils anyway. You are not immune to antibiotics either. Penicillin used to be a cure everthing and isn't nearly as effective as it used to be and you need to be on the right antibiotic in the first place to act upon certain areas of the body and different type of infection. Your Doctor should not be telling you such bs and if he or she new anything about panic attack, he or she would know not to say that to you even if he or she were right. Which he or she is not. Don't worry about the lump on your tonsil it is just part of the infection still lingering on. Seek out the right help and take care of these problems. You can do a search on Remeron if you like, you will find it easily spelled out as depression, not an anxiety medication. Suffer no more, help yourself get real help with real medications that treat your needs.

Sincerely,

Sickman :)
