> Didn't you start the 30 mg on Sunday?

I counted back and it was Sat night I started 30mg. So I will keep going till it hits 2 wks. (If pharmacy comes through). Is Remeron expensive per pill? I know some of the AD's are.

> A good response is characterized by improved mood, better coping ability, fewer tears, no thoughts of being better off dead, "seeing colors again," better energy, laughing at good jokes, better sleep, being able to get your mind off worries or at least worry "appropriately," hope for the future, feeling worthwhile, on and on. It's a gradual, but distinct, process and others notice before you do.

I think I am less anxious. I don't notice the pounding heart and tightness in my muscles as much. Even though it is still hard to concentrate, I think it is getting better. And I seem to be able to more easily put aside worries. And if I take a little bit of something for sleep along with the Remeron, I sleep better than I did before. It is strange on some mornings to wake up with the alarm! I would always set it and then turn it off in the morning before it went off. It is actually a bit scarey since noises still make me jump! A few degrees of progress?

> Don't try to tough out the sleep thing too much. If you need the kava or klonopin, take it. Pick one and stay with it for at least 3 days running and if you feel you need to switch to the other one to see if it's better, do so.

OK....Perhaps I will go with this and try to d/c it after the 2 weeks on Remeron?

Some of the time life seems a little less scarey. And, I feel as if I am not taking any meds--no side effects. Sometimes a little heavy headed in the afternoon but that could be from just not enough sleep. Perhaps a little less fragile...We will see.

Thanks for hanging in there for me.
