Remeron and increased appetite?? HELP!

I posted above, but no one answered. I have noticed an increase in my appetite, and it seems also, that my brain isn't telling me the same thing that my body is. We went for dinner on Mother's Day to a Thai food place, and they were having this fantastic buffet. Well I ate myself silly (Sunday is my "cheat day" for the week) and only stopped b/c my stomach literally HURT, but I still felt hungry!! I felt like I did when I was about 3 months pregnant, and had to put stretchy clothing on when we got home. It's like my brain isn't making the connection that I'm full, and I still feel hungry when I shouldn't be. I am concerned, since I am very active, and have worked really hard to get back into shape after having two children. The hunger really only hits me hard at night. In the day I seem to be ok. Is this an effect that eventually fades or do I have to deal with this the whole time I'm on remeron?? I've been on it almost a month. I make healthy food choices, and I don't eat white flour products, or much sugar. I rarely eat bread, but if I do it's always whole grain. But I've also read that some of these meds alter the body's metabolism. While I'd rather have a few extra pounds than have to deal with my severe anxiety and panic attacks (PPD related), I'm still worried about it. I have heard that some people gain 50+ lbs on this drug! I am only 5'1" and I can't "hide" extra weight.
Any advice on this??
