Remeron and sleep (Lots of it!)

Posted by Greg W on November 6, 1999, at 11:50:36

My Pain Management doctor prescribed Remeron to me for
extreme depression I was having due to the use of Fentanyl
narcotics for back surgery I had over a year ago. He said
it would make me a little drowsy the first 3 or 4 days,
What an understatement!!! The pharmacist says it's more
like 3 or 4 weeks before you get used to it. I'm supposed
to take a tab and a half (45mg), but that much puts me
right to sleep in 15-20 minutes. I took a 1/3 of a tab
at 5pm yesterday, and by 5:30 I was out like a light for
the night. Is this a normal reaction, and will I eventually
get used to it as the pharmacist says? I can only take
Remeron at bedtime and have yet to see any results for
the depression.

Many Thanks
