Effexor xr + Remeron

Posted by thunder on February 13, 2004, at 15:42:18

Have been on Effexor xr and 15 mg of Remeron for about 10 days. Doc increased my Remeron to 30 mg.
Forgot to ask how long it might be until I notice a change? Anyone know ? I have uni. dep. and am doing much better, but still have a ways to go.

Also, I'd appreciate it if the anti- Effexor people would not use this thread to tell me that I'm going to die due to the effexor.

Hi,

I am on 225 + 30 ATM. Took me about 2 months for the Remeron to fix my sleep problems. I get a lift from Efexor every time the dose has been increased, but it's not increasing my energy enough.

Cheers,
Panda.

Remeron instantly helped my sleep, but I still have problems with residual Dep. symptoms. Wondering if it might not have been better if Dr. had upped my Effexor dose rather than the Remeron? Thanks for your reply.

For me Efexor is the anti-depressant & Remeron is the sleeping pill that counteracts all of Efexor's side effects. How much Efexor are you on?

Cheers,
Panda.

I'm on 225 mg. Felt a little better when I was increasing dose from 187.5 to 225.

Can you tell me all of the Eff. side effects that the Remeron has helped with?
Thanks

Sounds like it might be time to go up on the Efexor depending on what you or your doc think is the maximum dose.

sideEfexor side effects that Remeron fixes are insomnia, nightmares, anorgasmia, nasuea & diarrhoea.

Cheers,
Panda.

Thanks for reply. Haven't had nightmares, diarrhea, or insomnia from Eff, but Remeron already seems to be helping with anorgasmia. Eff. indigestion sort of went away with time.
