Have you noticed an increase in appetite? I have gained at least 15 lbs over a 3 month period. I take it for unipolar depression and also take prozac and lamictal with it. I have been on ADs for over 12 years and have taken numerous ADs. Remeron intensifies the effectiveness of prozac, and lamictal, generally an anti-seizure med, has been added to also increase effectiveness. I have been taking this combo for 3 months and was relatively depression free, until two weeks ago when the pharmacy refilled my script with generic remeron. I will be seeing my pdoc on 1/5/04 and by then I will definitely know if the generic remeron is as effective as the brand.

> Yes, I am taking the Brand name of Remeron and not the generic. I've heard stories of people not having the best results from the generic versions. It's such a shame that dollars determine the degree of our well-being.

> By the way, I'm on Remeron for anxiety and not depression. Once I get over the initial fog-brain, I think this will be a wonderful med!!! I am so pleased that I finally got my doc to prescribe it for me. She refused to because she says it makes people "profoundly tired".....but that has not been the case for me. In fact, I still have some difficulty with sleeping. But I do believe that I feel a little calmer already, and I haven't even been on it a week yet.
