Effexor Remeron, seeking feedback

I just came out of a two-week major depression. First time in nine years. I have been on remeron at 60 mg/day and just went from 5 days on 37.5 Effexor to 75 mg/day. The depression lifted the first day on Effexor but I was getting a lot of support from my wife, a good friend and a psychiatrist we've been seeing for a year and a half.

I know it's supposed to take longer for Effexor to have an effect, but when I started Prozac three years ago, the first thing I noticed was great anxiety relief 3-4 days after I started it.

When I stopped Prozac cold turkey on my own, in about a month I couldn't sleep and had severe leg-thigh discomfort when trying to sleep. First Serzone, then Paxil, now remeron with neurontin for a couple months. Seems to work well except for the onset of depression, which might have to do with our couples therapy.

Anyone going through similar drugs?

Let me know
