I am interested in this drug because it is supposedly efficacious for anxiety (having failed to ameliorate this problem with Paxil, Effexor, Buspar, and Epival), but problems with cognition and memory are something I simply cannot afford to have (N.B., impairment of memory and concentration are among the most marked- and emotionally debilitating- features of my depression). In addition, has anyone experienced cognitive problems with Remeron?

Kev, on Serzone, I felt much more emotional...also, I would just talk without thinking much. On Effexor-XR, my mind (which usually races) is much calmer and I can stop and think more clearly without intrusive thoughts. On both medications, I felt MUCH less social anxiety, but with the Effexor, I feel a little more like what it must be to be "normal," I think.--Cindy
