> This happened to me with mirtazapine (Remeron). Does anyone have any similar stories or remedies? Thanks.

It seems as if every antidepressant (along with lithium) has produced stories of a failure to recapture the response to it after having stopped taking it. This is the first time I have seen this described for Remeron, though. It seems most common among the SSRIs.

What dosage had you been taking when it worked?
For how long had you discontinued it?
What dosage are you trying now?

If no other drug represents an alternative for you, perhaps you can try augmenting Remeron with drugs like Effexor. That particular combination is deemed particularly effective and has been tagged as "California Rocket Fuel". Even lithium might be worth a try.
