In reply to Remeron or Zoloft more powerful on Serotonin?, posted by mogger on May 30, 2012, at 13:39:00
Remeron has no effect on increasing serotonin. It may cause increased firing of serotonin in theory, but has not been definitely proven. More than anything else remeron is a potent antihistamine. It also blocks some serotonin receptors. Any or all of these could help someone feel better, someone else feel worse, but I think in the real world versus the laboratory world zoloft has a much stronger record in both the serotonin department and the depression department..
