In reply to Weigth gain on Remeron ....how to handle it?, posted by tepiaca on January 15, 2006, at 21:50:19
I agree with, I think it was yxibow, whoever said that you should only do anything about it if the Remeron is clearly better than what you've been on before. I know you've had a hard time of it lately, but unless this is clearly better than any of the others, it's probably not worth the struggle over this.
The only other advice I have is to talk to your doctor about this. Ask what you can do while you wait to see if this will work for you. Sometimes the weight gain is less at higher doses, so maybe raising it would help. Maybe adding Topomax, or Metformin has also been suggested. Maybe getting a referral to a dietician, who can help you with a meal plan that will help you avoid excessive weight gain.
Good luck, Teps.
