Actually, I am hypoglycemic and unfortunately the remeron makes it worse. I used to have to make sure I ate no more than four hours apart. On remeron my blood sugar plummets about every 2.5hours but I just can't eat that often or I will get huge. From now on I will know, if a med causes weight gain, its probably from messing with your blood sugar, and I won't take it. Unfortunately I am stuck on this remeron at least until spring if not longer if I can find nothing to replace it with.
Alexandra, I know you mean well, but if meditating, amino acids, supplements, vitamins, and every other alternative therapy were going to cure me, I would be cured by now. In fact, if my husband had not badgered me to go through the final paxil withdrawal (I was only on 2mg for a year to keep from going through withdrawal) in order to try supplements, I would not have gone through the past year of hell, including over nine months of severe suicidal ideation etc etc. I would have a life right now if I had stayed on paxil rather than listening to everyone who said I should be able to meditate etc etc myself better. No one tells a diabetic to meditate themselves off insulin.
