Re: Another Remeron Question

The biggest side effect from Remeron seems to be the hunger and/or weight gain. But it seems like that's not too bad for you. Remeron seems to be one of the better drugs according to all of the posts I've read.

I have never heard of any problems associated with long term use of antidepressants such as Remeron, except that the drugs may eventually become less effective. However, I have read lots of posts about people's problems returning when they stop taking drugs. They oftentimes start having the same problems that they experienced before starting the drugs. Then, when they therefore resume taking the drug again, oftentimes the drug is not as effective the second time around. So as long as Remeron is working for you, talk to your doctor and give the issue lots of thought before you decide to stop taking it.

> > I would like to state my peace here. I've been on remeron for about 3 months now and have never been better! I've read a lot of bad posting about Remeron and was pretty worried for a bit, but I never really had any problems. I'm hungry more often but that's about it. I started taking it because I had anxiety induced insomnia. I would go through some tough nights. I've tried a bunch of meds with mixed results (paxil, buspar, and a little klonipin). Remeron has been the best. I sleep great and don't ever worry about it. My only concern is about getting off this drug. I plan on staying on it for a year or so and getting off of it. Has anyone heard if it is difficult to get of this drug if is being used as a sleep aid? Let me know.
