Here are my reasons for stopping remeron. Off it completely as of today and have switched to buspar. I feel better than I have in a couple of months. Like I am back.....

I went on it about 2 months ago for isomnia and depression. I was sleeping on it, but, not without the aid of ambien every night, so it really did not help in that department. I think I could sleep with the ambien alone at this point. In addition, I do not think it helped my depression. I think I actually felt more depressed than when I started and I was certainly much more irritable and angry. I started at 15mg and was up to 45mg daily but the higher dose made me so incredibly spaced out by the afternoon that I almost could not function. I guess I don't see the point in continuing on a drug that isn't really helping any of the concerns that I have.

I also have OCD and anxiety. I would say that the remeron helped with my anxiety but I was seriously obsessing about my weight (because I have gained about 4 pounds.)

I will say that other than being spaced out, remeron has the fewest side effects of any AD I have tried so far.

I had a lot of hope pinned on remeron and am very dissapointed that it did not work for me. I do badly with the SSRIs. Here is hoping buspar works.
