No, I have taken Remeron alone and it didn't do anything except make me tired. I have taken Remeron + Effexor several times before (aka California Rocket Fuel) and it worked great, just like Remeron + Cymbalta. However, it pooped out after a couple of months and I gained some weight (not too much -- 5-10 lbs -- but enough to make me feel bad). I hope Cymbalta is different enough from Effexor that it won't poop out as quickly. That seems to be a problem with me.
There is a paper I read, and my pdoc told me about this (and even drew me a little diagram), about the synergistic relationship between Remeron and Effexor/Cymbalta. It's really cool how they work together. Big guns as they say.
I'm glad to hear Cymbalta is working for you.
