> I've read quite a few of the posts on this thread and the info has been really helpful. I usually go on the psycho/social boards but I started taking Remeron 6 weeks ago. I've gained 20 pounds and I'm normally pretty slim. I hate it. I can only get into two pairs of trousers and 3 bras that I own and the 'belly roll' I've developed got me so worried I took a pregnancy test! (it was negative!) I go to the gym and do hard excercise 3 times a week, go jogging and eat healthily but I'm still gaining weight. The only thing that remeron has done for me so far is make me even more sleepy - I sleep 11-12 hours a day, and feel like I'm in a little world of my own. I had to cancel my last pdoc appt and can't get another one for 3 months as I'm going away.
> I'm going to come off remeron over the next few days - any suggestions (I'm on 30mg)? Also have you got any tips to how to get the weight off after remeron?
> Thanks, cubic

Hi. I was on Remeron last fall into winter. I have never had a weight problem in my life, if anything I needed to gain. I gained 33 lbs. When I quit, I lost eight lbs in the first week. I have now lost a total of 23 lbs and have not done a thing to lose it. It just dropped off. And I don't mind the ten lbs that I have kept. I think I look better with it on. My brother gained 40 lbs on it and when he quit the weight dropped off him also. Hope this helps you.

Good luck,
