In reply to A question about remeron., posted by den2 on July 14, 2003, at 0:21:46

From what I know about remeron and my experience so far on the medication, which has only been 3 weeks, taking smaller doses does seem to increase alpha 2 agonist action, in the way that it influences serotonin and melatonin secretion, thus causing more of a sedated effect on the lower doses, and most people have reported that on lower doses it does indeed cause them to feel more sedated, (search the board for more info ) and from personal experience taking a lower dose of 7.5mg does bring on more sedative effects for me than say 15 or 30mg, which seems to work more on the other receptors, but with all that said mirtazpine for me is in a league of its own as anti depressents go, there has been way less irratable side effects than all the SSRI's I've tried and much more of a steady ride than effexor. The only complaints I have so far is with increased doses brings a very increased appetite, so for some people starting off on the lowest dose of 7.5mg for the first few weeks or so would probably be a good idea to ride with. My doc started me off on the 30mg a night, which was waaay too much for me to start off on. I was eating way too much, so I've gone down to 7.5 before bed and so far so good. So for me relatively small doses are working better so far.
