> Thanks for the responses LyndaK and J-lo.
> May I ask what dosages you are both on? (I'm sure it is in past posts--but you know how depression is--hard to concentrate on anything very long!)
> I went to the pdoc today and he said I could either up my dosage to 30mg now (I've been on it almost two weeks) or wait another two to three weeks and see how the 15mg works out.
> My day time energy is just fine on 15mg, but I do have extreme dry mouth (don't really care about that) and blood sugar problems (do care about this!)

(But then I worry--what if the 30mgs is what I need and I "waste" those weeks waiting--ain't anxiety grand?!)

I have been on 15mg. remeron for 2 yrs. I take it for anxiety & it worked pretty quick for me. But I also take 1 mg. klonopin a day with the remeron. I love it & have had very few side effects. The tire feeling does go away after your body gets used to it. My side effects were muscle weakness in my legs which seem to come & go & constipation. I tried 30mg. but my ankles & feet swelled & constipation was much worse. In Nov. the depression hit so the Dr. added lexapro to my mix & everything seems to be going fine now.I hope this information has helped you.
