I'm sorry to hear you are having such a difficult time with the Remeron, and other drugs. It is hard enough to live without these things too. I take Effexor XR 150 mg once daily (comes in 37.5, 75, 150) and it does not make me sleepy, except for an occassional relaxed yawn. I run two miles a day and feel refreshed in the morning (male age 49). I've tried Paxil which made me feel spaced out, and Celexa, which didn't do much at all. The AD's that reduce energy levels are: Serzone and Remeron. Some that increase energy levels are: Wellbutrin and Effexor XR. You have tried Wellbutrin and Serzone to no avail, and the Remeron is too sedating. Paxil is sedating, and Prozac is activating (haven't tried Prozac). There is also Desyrel (trazodone) but it is a more sedating one because it is prescribed for sleep disorders. There is Manerix (moclobemide) good for depression with anxiety, and not sedating. Also Vestra (reboxetine) -- may not be available in US -- which increases NE. (I'm assuming you are avoiding tricyclics and MAOI's entirely.)

My best guess is Effexor XR.
