I only have my personal experience, but here it is: I was on Remeron for about two weeks. I don't gain weight on meds; I have a combo of being genetically thin and so depressed/anxious that I don't want to eat anyway. I don't think about food or weight a lot because I'm suicidal half the time and smaller considerations sort of go out the window.
Remeron changed all that. I thought about cookies, cake, pudding, 24/7. I don't know what it would be like if you don't give into the cravings, because I found it almost impossible not to give in. Even bought two extra mini fridges for work to store pudding. That may have been because I am not a good dieter with experience in controlling food intake; I'm usually so messed up it's not an issue. But I think it would be hard for anybody. I gained about eight pounds in two weeks, which was a lot for a 103 lb person.
