I'm not currently on this combo. I'm currently on Parnate (an maoi inhibitor). I was on the Remeron/paxil combo from about the year 2000-2005, that's a long time for me. Most meds only work a year or less for me, if they work at all.
But that's me, your husband and i have a different type of depression. For him, if it works, it could work indefinitely. There really is no guarantee with these meds, just trial and error. And as i've read many times here...your miles may vary. Best wishes.
