The suggestions offered above regarding massage, Klonopin, Kava, consultation with an oral surgeon, bite guard and the EMDR are all good. I know the jaw pain was present before the Remeron, so I don't think it's contributing to it. You may indeed have to go back to the Klonopin or try the Kava from the health food store (just be sure never to use those two together because the effects add up and can lead to coma). I have been also hearing about very good results with TMJ from EMDR specialists, so you should ask the therapist you are seeing if she can target the jaw pain at some point. I believe you are seeing her tomorrow or the next day, right? I look forward to hearing about it.

As for the weight gain: I asked the drug rep if there has been any new information about that. Besides the suggestion of trying the Zantac or Pepcid, increasing the mount of exercise you get and cutting calories, there has been nothing new. You would really need to talk with your doctor before thinking about stopping an antidepressant, especially since you've had the depression for so long it would be a big risk to come off the one thing that has really worked. Maybe one of the posters here has some advice from their own experience.
