However, this is not something that is often reported with Remeron. It is conceivable, though. Both drugs increase norepinephrine synthesis and release.

Scott is right. When I took nortriptyline (which also increases norepinephrine) I got much more anxious. And nortriptyline is often prescribed to help anxiety.

Have you told your doctor about your increased anxiety? Do you have benzos you can take in the meantime?
