> > My Dr. wants me to try remeron 30 mg a day. I have been on several ad in four years. I have never felt so down as I do today. I couldn't stop crying in the dr's office today. Has anyone has any experience with this drug? Did it work? Side effects? I feel so alone.
> Thanks for the responses. I have been on it for two days and I feel like a zombie. Isn't there something out there that can counteract the sleepy effect. I am so out of it. I hate the feeling but I hate this depression even more. Any suggestions?

Trish, the daytime zombiness will subside in a couple weeks. For me it never went away completely at doses of 22.5mg or more, but it does lessen. Did you start at 30mg? If so, that was a pretty hefty dose to me. I don't think I could have started with any more than 15mg. Wellbutrin is commonly used with Remeron to counteract the effects. Sometimes psychostimulants too. Just keep in mind though that if Remeron is going to work for you, you should start feeling better than you do now in a week or so. Remeron is generally quicker acting than most other ADs, so relief may be right around the corner. Hang in there. JohnL
