> Can anybody tell me of their experience on Remeron? Specificly, is it really as sedating as many say it is? What about weight gain? Thanks.


I've been on both 15mg and 30mg, mostly at former. I've gained probably 8 pounds in as many weeks. There is less weight gain at 30mg than at 15. It's helped some with the anxiety and depression thusfar. I've not found 15mg to be that sedating. It was at first, but now (even in the mornings) it's fine. I had some serious dizziness, which decreased when I dropped from 30 to 15mg. Now, the main dizziness I experience is when I'm startled by something--I get quite faint for a moment or two. I'm going to go off it due to the weight gain, I think; however, IME it's not something I'll write off completely as an option. (I'd definitely return to it before going with a TCA or MAOI.)

Best of luck with it.
