(And I rarely raise my voice -- just don't get worked up enough under normal circumstances to bother.) Dr EyeCandy told me that he'd had that happen with a few of his patients who tried it.

Hi Racer,

That's alpha-2 NE antagonism kicking in, I hate it too. For me 15mg was bliss, when I increased to 30mg they became angry pills & it took me months to get use to it. :)

Remeron at low doses is a powerful H1 antagonist, at moderate doses it blocks 5-HT2 & 5-HT3, as you increase further, Alpha-2 NE antagonism kicks in & this is why higher doses are supposed to be stimulating. I guess the majority of people like A2 antagonism, but people like us don't. It's the reason I suggest people start low & creep up on the doseage slowly rather than going straight to a high doseage. I also urge people to try 22.5mg because 15, 22.5 & 30mg do distictly different things for me.

Cheers,
Panda.
