I tried Remeron a year ago and HATED it!
In my experience:
Yes, it's extremely sedating, at lower doses, and I found it to still make me dozy at 45mg! According to my research from last year, at lower doses, the histamine response is predominant at doses less than 45mg, hence the sedation. (Actually, I was plain "drunk",slurred speech and everything!). Above 30mg it begins to effect norepinephrine and also some serotonin receptors, which is supposed to be more noticeable at 45mg.
So at that level it can be a little stimulating or more like an alertness/focussed effect. I didn't experience that at all, however. Just drowsiness, fluid retention and wierd stuff. I did not feel any anger, nor did I read about it at the time. But a related effect was a lack of inhibition...I did some very dumb things, took risks, made a few poor decisions, and had an " I don't care" attitude. I've since read reports that Remeron has caused people to do things against their usual better judgement, like stealing!! I don't know how common that is.
Hope that helps.
