Re: Appetite

With Remeron, the more norepinephrine, the less effect from histamine. Histamine is what causes the appetite to increase. Theorectically, increasing the dose another 15 mg should help here. In lieu of that, people have recently been telling me that the sports drinks, Gatorade and whatnot, are very useful for keeping the stomach full, but that unlike plain water, there are enough calories to decrease actual hunger but not too many calories like soda has. They also have no caffeine and are better for you than diet soda. Bananas, apples, and oranges are good to snack on, as is Chex mix, and raw veggies (tomatoes being better for some people than carrots in terms of satisfying hunger). Don't forget exercise, either. If you can't afford a membership at a health club or the YMCA, libraries often have exercise videos to check out for free (which is good because you can vary your routine more than if you had to buy only a few and then get bored). Exercise moves the blood supply away from the stomach so that hunger decreases immediately afterwards. And, now that the New Year is coming, maybe a lot of these high calorie snacks will disappear from the office for awhile. Take care.
