just to reiterate: remeron is an antagonist which fights/blocks histamine receptors. it increases norepinephrine in the brain which in turn increases heart rate and pressure, conversion of glycogen in glucose, and therefore increases the conversion of fats into fatty acids in adipose (fat) tissue. what this means to me is that the rate that the glucose is being converted is increased, which in turn means that your body would need to burn off the glycogen so many times faster than normal to keep up. so, because your body is using the glycogen so quickly and converting it before you can replenish...thus, the carbohydrate/sweet cravings...
