Re: How Does Remeron Work For You All?

Well, i was looking this over. I have just been prescribed Remeron after 25 years on Parnate. I stopped the Parnate after a hypertensive crisis ( and have been very depressed during the 18 days without Parnate. So I have been on Remeron for two days, taking only half of a 15 mg pill. In any case, I just wanted to get involved in the discussion. I don't have a lot to contribute to the question as to how does Remeron work for me, because I have just begun with Remeron.

What would work for me would also be having a good challenging job (I am currently running a small business to earn enough money to live on, but it takes up very little time, and I have too much free time, and feel very under-challenged). And a better support network. I live out of the USA and sometimes feel very isolated here in Costa Rica, even after 20 years. Its a long story as to how I wound up here, and why I am still here. In any case for me, the depression is always interactive with real life issues, but when I have had depressions in the past they have been severe. Parnate previously was what had worked for me.

As a parenthesis I would add (although it is not politically correct, perhaps) that I began taking Vicodin for a physical problem resulting in pain, about seven years ago. I also find now that a small amount of Vicodin (half of a 5/500 pill) takes the edge off of the depression. I am not thrilled about doing this, but at the moment I have found that this helps during this transition between Parnate and Remeron, and I don't feel like I am an "addict". In any case, I have never taken more than two Vicodin per day, and have tried very hard not to develop tolerance avoid 'addiction' in the traditional sense.
any feed back is welcome
