My experience with Remeron was (added to 4.5 klonopin)
1) First few days I was in heaven, the perfect combo. Like a type "A" (paradoxic based on the profiles of those 2 meds).
2) Frist few weeks excellent, type A, excellent cognition.
3) 3-5 weeks, increasingly depressed.
4) Stopped

On retrial couple years later (with only 4.5 Klonopin)
Same experience, only depression started much sooner, after
great effect a couple days.

BTW, that was 15 Remeron + 4.5 Klonopin

Later upped to higher Remeron but was more depressed (and became fatigued).
All of that contradicts 'normal expections'
In fact I also became irratible and frankly an ****ole to some people.
Unihibited and unthinking about consequences.

Adding 50 Zoloft helped a lot, there.
Experimened and found that 7.5 Remeron added to 50 Zoloft
TOTALLY elimated sexual side effects of either drug taken alone,
unfortunately, high SP symtoms!!! Kind of undid everything.

I would characterize Remeron as being very uncommonly used.
Some are sedated, some irratable, some depressed.

Is not really a "serotonergic" in long term use.
It become in my opinion primarily a "noradrenergic" medication.

In my case I'm treating SP of a severe (untreated) type.

My 2 cents,

> Does Remeron cause muscle aches (especially back) as a side effect? I have been on it for about 8 weeks - was doing great, but feel depression creeping in again. I am on 15 mgs. a day - should i ask my psych to up it to 30? Also, my Urologist has said something about putting me on Elavil for urinary issues - can the two be taken together? Are there withdrawl symptoms from Remeron once (if) I do eventually go off it? Thanks!
