I second that. If you're doing well on a drug, don't assume that if you stop taking it and start feeling bad again that you can restart the drug and pick up where you left off. I'm real sorry I stopped taking Paxil after four good years.

> 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.
