In reply to Zyprexa vs Remeron for Prozac Augmentation, posted by Nathan on June 14, 2001, at 9:19:12

Here is a look at Remeron:
--It can be used for all types of depression, anxiety, OCD, and insomnia.
--It is convienient because it is taken only once at bedtime.
--It may improve libido and sexual performance (its the only medication that improves mine). Dr. Bob Hsieung's fellow doctors recommend it for sexual dysfunction.
--You can take Remeron with most antidepressants except MAOIs.
--It has none of the anticholinergic effects of SSRIs.
--It has gained recognition as a very useful medication from psychiatrists in only four years of FDA approval. I myself started Remeron at 60 mg right away and had no side-effects. I had no weight gain or sedation during the day. http://www.dr-bob.org/tips/split/Mirtazapine-for-SSRI-ADRs.html

Here are the advantages of Zyprexa, as opposed to most antipsychotics and antidepressants:
--It will calm you down all day; when I took it, I thought it was better than a benzo.
--It has no anticholinergic effects.
--It has no sexual side-effects .
--It will definitely help you sleep.
--Zyprexa is convienient because it is taken only once at night.
--It is covered by insurance, generally.
--It augments antidepressants.
--Despite what rumors go around, Tardive Dyskinesia on Zyprexa is rare.
