I have been using remeron for sleep and it really knocks me out. Its been much better than any benzo and I think I've tried them all. My only hesitation in recommending it is that since my pdoc added seroquel for more anti depression effect I have been waking after 6 hrs of sleep and waking in a panic sometimes. I think it is the seroquel but my docs (2-I went for a consult) both think that the remeron is causing the panic and increased anxiety. They want me to decrease the remeron and increase the seroquel for sleep. So I quess what I'm saying is that I think the remeron is worth a try. It was a wonderful sleeper in the beginning.
Hope this is helpful
