User Comments:


For Major Depressive Disorder “Literally a life saver. I have been on every antidepressant known to man and I thought they were all a joke, they never worked. I ended up in behavioral health facility for 2 weeks because of a major depressive episode and constant thought of suicide. They gave me this medication and I stuck with it. Initially it will make you sleepy and crave food like crazy. You will also have crazy dreams. This will pass in time. I haven’t fallen into a depression in over 3 years now , which is a record. I have recently lost my job, because of a different medical condition. I am on food stamps and might have to sell my home, but amazingly it’s no big deal to me. Remeron and other forms of therapy have changed my whole outlook on life. If anyone has tried every medication and it hasn’t worked give this one a try. Only downside at this point I can think of is, sometimes when you want to feel down or depressed ( I know it sounds weird) you are not able to.”

For Depression “I was on Prozac for years following the passing of my father. It stopped working & I started to feel more depressed. I discussed this w/ my doctor & he put me on Remeron to try it out & he stopped the Prozac. This medication has helped tremendously w/ my depression, anxiety, & my sleeplessness. I think the way it works for me out ways the side effects. I did gain a little weight but not much to where I am uncomfortable. I do recommend this medication to people w/ the problems it is used for. Worth trying it out if other medications aren’t working for you.”

For Depression “Remeron 15 mg worked so well for me! Stick with it – it takes a few weeks but it works. The only reason I can’t give it a 10 is because I’m hungry all the time and have no libido. Thank you God for helping me get through this time and for this medication”

For Major Depressive Disorder “I have had several bouts of depression in the last 30 years. SSRIs don’t work for me. Tried them all. Remeron was a lifesaver. Started at 15 mgs and now up to 45 mgs. Didn’t sleep well before this med. It cured my depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Only con, is weight gain which I’m working on with walking and eating a healthy diet. My husband said he rather see me chubby and happy and I totally agree. I’m so glad my doctor out me on this tricyclic antidepressant.”

For Depression “I’ve been on Effexor for several years and suffered severe sexual effects so went to the doc and he started me on Remeron. For the last three years I’ve been training cardio 5-6 times a week, had lost 10 kg and feeling quite proud of my body. Now at just over three months on Remeron I started feeling my clothes getting tighter, am feeling fat, bloated and lethargic. I can’t train with the intensity I am used to and just want to go to bed earlier and earlier. I weighed myself the other day and to my horror found I’d put on 11 kg. I don’t feel I’ve been eating much more than I used to. Of course the realization that I’ve lost everything I’ve worked for in recent years has made me feel pretty bad, and I’m not sure I want to continue.”
