Have any of the folks that are taking, or have taken, Remeron have any anecdotes or comments about its effects on anxiety, cognition, and memory? I am about to switch meds after having been on Effexor since last May for anxiety and depression (with marked difficulties in concentration and memory). While Effexor proved to be very efficacious in blocking acute, heart-pounding anxiety (something like the fight-or-flight response), it seems to be useless for chronic, low-level anxiety, for ameliorating concentration and memory problems, and for re-energizing me. I am extremely interested in Remeron as it works on 2 mechanisms theoretically implicated in anxiety, but I find reports of what has been described in this thread as a "zombie-like" sedative effect very disconcerting. Comments?
