Hey John,
Thanks for the reply. I was not aware that reboxetine caused sexual problems. Sexual difficulties are always presented as a rare side effect of the drug, not that they would keep me from trying it. Aside from this problem, did you find the drug more effective than serotonergic agents or was it similar?
I was on Zoloft for over a year and it didn't work too well. Like Prozac, it did make me less anxious but it also caused very unpleasant irritability and apathy so I prefer to rely on clonazepam for anxiety. Remeron works well for me. It's supposed to be less sedating in higher doses so I will consider asking my doctor to switch my prescription to 45mg instead of 30mg. Hopefully that will do the trick. Every other AD I've tried made me unbearably edgy, even when taken along with Depakote or Neurontin (except for Desyrel wich is definitely not an option, for other reasons). Do you know if a higher dosage of Remeron would help?
