> We sure do. It is true that a lot of people (not everyone) find that the sedation decreases as they increase the dose, so it's not just theoretical. That doesn't mean that everyone will experience this. Also, 30 mg is a middle-range dose of Remeron, and it's quite possible that someone who finds 30 to be oversedating will be less sedated on 45 (for example).

Yes, but only try and error will show this. We know a lot about drugs in vitro (or of rats -> in vivo) but very less in vivo !

Wow, thats pretty much - do you take such doses ? I think this would knock me out ? Okay, try and error !

> I'm not sure what you mean by "mood stabilizer for unipolars." Can you say more about this?

Carbamazepine, Valproate, Lamotrigine....are
used as an adjunct in unipolar depression for
diminishing recurrence of episodes and as an augmentation strategy . I thought Oxcarbazepine might be used as a new alternative (?) - very few data available yet on that theme ! Or do you have other infos about that ?
