Hi Anna:

By "paradoxic", I simply meant that the more you take, the less sedating it is- seems counterintuitive, but holds true for most who take it. Thus, unlike a benzo, if the sedation effect wears off (as it did for me), you cannot increase the sedation by increasing the dose. Hope this helps.

BTW, what country are you posting from?

Another question for you remeron users....this is my third day at 15mg. I am also taking 6mg of melatonin. My sleep is so,so. It took 1.5 hours to go to sleep last night and I woke up several times during the night.

My concern is that I feel totally spaced out. Is this just a normal adjustment to a new med or am I having trouble with remeron? The only other AD I have ever been on was effecor and I did not have this feeling at all.

Hi Anna:

I only asked where you were from because I'm curious and amazed at how far-reaching our little "psycho-babble" community is. Dr. Bob should really be proud of what he has created here.

The UK, huh? The land where benzos are thought to be from the devil himself? I spent a great two weeks there in 1999 on "holiday", as you would say.

"BTW" is computereze for "by the way".

BTW, fair is fair, since you told me where you're from- I'm from Los Angeles, California, USA:)

Hi Dave,

I actually wanted to increase my remeron because of the tightness in my chest and feeling like I couldn't
get a full breath in. Last friday, my doc said I could go from 15mg to 30 mgs. I started this weekend. I felt
really good on saturday, didn't even feel tired at all from the increase, felt ok sunday,
then had a really bad sunday night from anxiety. Has anyone ever lost the ability to yawn?
I know it sounds strange, but it was highly distressing and I had so much trouble sleeping.
The 30 mgs of remeron dont' seem to have any side effects for me. I had a little bout with the
constant cravings for food (not increase in appetite, just never satisfied with what
I ate). After 4 weeks, that passed. Anyway, I'm hoping after a couple of weeks at 30 mgs I will
level out and feel better.

Karen

> I've been on Remeron 15 mgs. for about six weeks now. The sedation effect wore off for me after about a month. I asked my docs about a different sleep augmentor (my main med is Celexa, 40 mg.) but they wanted to wait awhile and see what would happen. I started experimenting with "natural" sleep aids (usually Valerian root, GABA, occasionally Kava) and, lo and behold, started sleeping again- not through the night, mind you, but enough to function well the next day. And so it has gone the last couple of weeks- I have Ambien, xanax and klonopin on hand as needed but haven't taken one in a long time (and want to take as little as possible of that stuff!)

So I'm not surprised at your reaction. If it is sleep augmentation you're looking for, the following are meds that various patients have found useful (other than a benzo or a sleeping pill): Trazodone (low dose), Zyprexa, one of the tricyclics (elavil or doxepin), vistaril (an antihistamine).

Hey Anna:

Like anywhere, Los Angeles is not nearly as glamorous to us who live here as it looks from afar. Most of us have no connection with the entertainment industry. There are plenty of outlets for "extra" Xanax, though:)

I was mostly in London but we went touring up to Wales (Llangollen- yes I did learn how to pronounce it!) and then on to Edinburgh. Didn't make it to that town where that unknown rock group Dr. Bob refers to was from:)

Anna, do they use MAOIs in UK, like nardil or parnate? Have these been drugs you've tried?
Just interested in whether they're available and widely used there for refractory depression since I would have been completely lost without nardil.

Shelli,

Yes, they do use MAOIs for refractory depression over here.

I`ve been on Nardil now for over a year, and it`s done no good at all. It has, however, caused me a lot of weight gain (3 stone). Bit of a bummer, since it hasn`t made an atom of difference to my mood.

A friend of mine has been on it (Nardil) 3 times, and it worked 1st and 2nd time, but not the 3rd.

Anyway, yes MAOIs are used, but not as often as SSRIs and Tricyclics.

Anna.

p.s. has Nardil made a big difference? My mate said that it was brilliant when it did work.

> p.s. has Nardil made a big difference? My mate said that it was brilliant when it did work.

I've been really lucky with nardil, in that it worked first for about six years, stopped working; 2nd time worked for about three years. It wasn't that I was never depressed, I just never dropped down below a certain level for more than 1 day. Then around a year ago effectiveness pretty much stopped, although I've still used it as the main ad to augent. All my augmentation failed or made me fat (lamictal). I take hydrocodone if things get really bad, a very small amount which I don't increase.

For the last two months I have taken omega fatty acids in the form of flax seeds (with nardil), and I think it's making a big difference; I will be able to tell better after another month.

I really hope the regiment from the hospital helps you. One more thing--you've probably already tried it, but I know people who haven't done well with anything, then did well with sam-e- (1600-2400mg). It didn't work for me, but it's just one more thing to put on your list. Shelli

Anna:

Xanax is the brand name for the benzodiazepene generically known as Alprazolam. It is a high-potency, short acting med. My "outlet" comment was intended as a joke, referring to my geographic proximity to Hollywood; Xanax is one of the "drugs of the stars". Guess I should have been a bit less obscure with my attempt at humor:)

That`s really bad news. I bet you were really sick about that one.

Hi Anna,

I think less than 20% gain weight. I gained 15 lbs. but lost it within ten days after discontinuing lamictal. I guess its water weight, but it's a lot of water weight! But I tried dieretics and they didn't do anything.

It's called SAM-e (pronounced sammy)-short for S-adenosyl-methionine, has been first widely used in Europe for over twenty years and a lot of successful trials have been done over the years over there; I think mostly in Germany and France. It might be a prescription drug in England, I don't know--here it's an over the counter herb. Lots of info on the internet.

Quaaludes have fallen out of fashion. There was a notorious case in the US involving a young woman named Karen Ann Quinlan who mixed quaaludes with alcohol and wound up in a vegetative coma. There was a big legal fight by her parents to turn off the machines keeping her alive (they won). Anyway, it was a well-known case and scared the heck out of a lot of folks who switched to other tranquilizers, Valuim and Xanax among them.

Right. Thanks for clearing that up.

BTW (I`m getting the hang of this `computerspeak` lark), Valium has absolutely NO effect on me, even at dosages of 30 mg per time. Since this is the only tranquilliser here (they`ve just withdrawn Melleril from the market), this is a major bummer.

The biggest side effect from Remeron seems to be the hunger and/or weight gain. But it seems like that's not too bad for you. Remeron seems to be one of the better drugs according to all of the posts I've read.

I have never heard of any problems associated with long term use of antidepressants such as Remeron, except that the drugs may eventually become less effective. However, I have read lots of posts about people's problems returning when they stop taking drugs. They oftentimes start having the same problems that they experienced before starting the drugs. Then, when they therefore resume taking the drug again, oftentimes the drug is not as effective the second time around. So as long as Remeron is working for you, talk to your doctor and give the issue lots of thought before you decide to stop taking it.

I second that. If you're doing well on a drug, don't assume that if you stop taking it and start feeling bad again that you can restart the drug and pick up where you left off. I'm real sorry I stopped taking Paxil after four good years.

Here are my reasons for stopping remeron. Off it completely as of today and have switched to buspar. I feel better than I have in a couple of months. Like I am back.....

I went on it about 2 months ago for isomnia and depression. I was sleeping on it, but, not without the aid of ambien every night, so it really did not help in that department. I think I could sleep with the ambien alone at this point. In addition, I do not think it helped my depression. I think I actually felt more depressed than when I started and I was certainly much more irritable and angry. I started at 15mg and was up to 45mg daily but the higher dose made me so incredibly spaced out by the afternoon that I almost could not function. I guess I don't see the point in continuing on a drug that isn't really helping any of the concerns that I have.

I also have OCD and anxiety. I would say that the remeron helped with my anxiety but I was seriously obsessing about my weight (because I have gained about 4 pounds.)

I will say that other than being spaced out, remeron has the fewest side effects of any AD I have tried so far.

I had a lot of hope pinned on remeron and am very dissapointed that it did not work for me. I do badly with the SSRIs. Here is hoping buspar works.

> i am on 30mg of remeron a day.I have been on it for 5 days now and am really beginning to wonder if this was the right thing to do.I feel more depressed because i just wanna sleep.from what ive read this goes away and i really hope it does.I also wanna eat when im awake and being that i worked real hard and lost 9 pounds right before being put on this it had really bothered me that im eating like this.I also got a mouth ulcer is this related to remeron? i will say remeron has givin me wonderful sleep and i love the vivid dreams,I just cant stand having to throw my self out of bed and walk away from the bed when i try to go back to bed.I have 4 kids and they like getting up early but remeron mom doesnt.

thanks dreamweaver
