> > I tried combining Remeron with Effexor 300mg, but the addition of Remeron made me feel moderately worse. I once reacted badly to a similar drug, idazoxan. It was worth the risk, though. I am trying to leave no stone unturned.

> How much Remeron were you taking? I had a bad time trying to tritate from 15mg to 30mg, Alpha-2 blockade just causes me severe irritation & crankiness. I still think of it as a good sleep pill that counters SSRI type side effects & people should only take as much as they need, rather than high dose as it is just not an effective AD for most people. I think it would be a better pill if it didn't have Alpha-2 antagonism because the 5-HT2A, 5-HT2C & 5-HT3 antagonism is great.

I think I only made it up to 30mg. It worsened my depression at that dosage. Idazoxan is an experimental compound known to be a potent NE alpha2 antagonist. It made me feel much worse for the many weeks I was on it. I wasn't surprised when Remeron did so too.

Have you thought to try Serzone?
