> Thanks for your post, Northerngal.
> I take 60mg. of Remeron per day (nothing else) and I gained 20 lbs. that won't come off. What is Zantac and how does it help your metabolism?
> It's interesting that you are on both Remeron and Effexor. I took Effexor before and lost so much weight I was worried about being too thin! Have you ever taken Effexor alone? If so, what effect did it have on your weight? I'm wondering if the weight-loss side-effect of one drug can counteract the weight-gain side-effect of another.

I have always been skinny, skinny (5'3" 98-103 lbs.) but gained 40 lbs. in the first four months of taking Remeron, despite 20+ miles of running a week. Zantac has been a gift that has brought my body's metabolism back to some level of normalacy. I still have to watch what I eat and exercise a lot to maintain 130 lbs., but at least the weight gain is controllable and I'm not gaining 10 lbs. a month (and I'm alive!). The combination of Remeron and Effexor has been the magic bullet for my depression. If anyone wants to talk further about weight gain, please feel free to write me. I truly feel like an expert now!
> Hi Lynda

How much zantac did you have to take to prevent Remeron weight gain and do you know of anyone who has actually lost weight while on Remeron and zantac. I have read in one study that the participants that took 600 mg of Zantac actually lost weight. That sure is a lot of zantac and I wonder if that would reduce your gut acid too much and cause problems.
