If?

If one med increases bad thoughts does it mean that all meds will give you a negative effect? How do you know. I am thinking about trying remeron. I am taking tofranil now and have gotten worse. what to do?
No, Boiler, a bad experience with one med does NOT mean you will have a bad experience with another. Tofranil is a tricyclic antidepressant. Remeron is from a different class know at tetracyclics.

Unfortunately, much of psychiatry these days is trial and error. It may take several different meds before you find one that will work for you. BUT, that DOESN'T mean that you won't find one that works.

If Remeron doesn't work and you are severely depressed, you might want to try one of the SSRIs (Prozac, Zoloft, etc).
my doctor says to start remeron tonight. Should I start this med this quick. Or should their be a drying out time. How will I know if the next med is causing the thoughts too. I have ocd. I can't tell sometimes if it is the med or my condition. But I have never felt like harming anyone else and taking this med made me feel that way from day one. I have taken it for 12 days. Psych. says to go straight to remeron. If this is a bad reaction, will it mess the taking the remeron up. Just thinking about my system.
I have been on Remeron for awhile now and it is an ok med. I have MDD with psycotic features - see and hear things. The med prescribed for the psycotic stuff is zyprexa, surprised your doc has not thought of an antipsycotic yet

I take geodon. The thoughts got worse on tofranil. I am wondering if remeron will do the same. I was wondering if I should start a new med right away. My doc said to start tonight. How do you deal with the bad thoughts. How do I know if I am getting worse on the remeron or left over effects of the tofranil. Or is my geodon causing it.
here are the meds I take and what they do

effexor-depression
remeron-depression
wellbutrin-depression
lithium-mood stabilizer
zyprexa-anti psycotic
trazodone-sleep and depression

how do I deal with bad thought? Lots of practice, lots of self talk and stopping the bad help before it grow to big
