My dr prescribed this medication for me today and then told me it causes you to gain weight. I have recently lost 30lbs and do not want to regain weight because of a medication. Has any one else had this problem?
Asked by Jennette Danas 3 months ago.
Remeron in an atypical anti-psych medication. There are about 6 other meds in the same class as Remeron. Although they all have some weight gain side effects, Remeron is the most pronounced of the class. It is actually used as an appetite stimulant (especially in the elderly) by some practitioners. Take to your prescribing MD and ask them why they specifically Rx'd Remeron for you and if they believe there may be a better option due to your hinderance for weight gain. I do not know your diagnosis, but I would suggest you discuss the option of starting another anti-psych med such as Abilify or Geodon since they trend towards lower side effects. Remeron is a well documented medication and has had very good results. However, you have to be comfortable with the medicine you are taking. The most important thing, again, is to talk to your MD. Answered by Floy Kroening 3 months ago.
Remeron is a psyshotrophic medication that is very strong. I have to assume you need this for your mental health or your Dr. would not have Rxed it to you. First off you should have discussed this with him while you were there. I think the mental health issue you have far out weighs any weight gain. Talk to your Dr. again or Pharmacist for further advice. You can also watch your diet and eat healthy which will keep your weight in check. Good Luck Answered by Florene Seard 3 months ago.

I was switched on Remeron (Mirtazapine) 30MG from Effexor XR. I took my first Remeron yesterday and I took one today. For some reasons why was my eyes twitching, felt really dizzy, felt really sleepy and I couldn't sleep because my body was tired but my mind was still functioning, It made me ate alot and made me throw up. I felt really hungry like i never felt before, when my eyes were close i felt like there was this white clear stuff coming through all over my body. it's hard to explain. i'm sorry. then I was having this weird dreams. Please help Answered by Carl Barrack 3 months ago.
Remeron can cause weight gain and increased appetite but does not usually cause an upset stomach or vomitting. It does cause drowsiness and some lightheadedness and/or dizziness. The clear white stuff coming through your body (as you describe it,) the weird dreams, nausea/vomitting, the eyes twitching and the mind functioning while you are tired are all side effects/withdrawal effects of Effexor XR. If your doctor took you off the medication without taking you down on the medication over a period of several days (or a couple weeks) than s/he made a very poor professional choice. Even the manufacturer recommends: "Discontinuation of Treatment with Effexor XR Discontinuation symptoms have been systematically evaluated in patients taking venlafaxine, to include prospective analyses of clinical trials in Generalized Anxiety Disorder and retrospective surveys of trials in major depressive disorder, and Social Anxiety Disorder. Abrupt discontinuation or dose reduction of venlafaxine at various doses has been found to be associated with the appearance of new symptoms, the frequency of which increased with increased dose level and with longer duration of treatment. Reported symptoms include agitation, anorexia, anxiety, confusion, impaired coordination and balance, diarrhea, dizziness, dry mouth, dysphoric mood, fasciculation, fatigue, headaches, hypomania, insomnia, nausea, nervousness, nightmares, sensory disturbances (including shock-like electrical sensations), somnolence, sweating, tremor, vertigo, and vomiting. During marketing of Effexor XR, other SNRIs (Serotonin and Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors), and SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors), there have been spontaneous reports of adverse events occurring upon discontinuation of these drugs, particularly when abrupt, including the following: dysphoric mood, irritability, agitation, dizziness, sensory disturbances (e.g. paresthesias such as electric shock sensations), anxiety, confusion, headache, lethargy, emotional lability, insomnia, hypomania, tinnitus, and seizures. While these events are generally self-limiting, there have been reports of serious discontinuation symptoms. Patients should be monitored for these symptoms when discontinuing treatment with Effexor XR. A gradual reduction in the dose rather than abrupt cessation is recommended whenever possible. If intolerable symptoms occur following a decrease in the dose or upon discontinuation of treatment, then resuming the previously prescribed dose may be considered. Subsequently, the physician may continue decreasing the dose but at a more gradual rate (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION). Discontinuing Effexor XR Symptoms associated with discontinuation of Effexor XR, other SNRIs, and SSRIs, have been reported (see PRECAUTIONS). Patients should be monitored for these symptoms when discontinuing treatment. A gradual reduction in the dose rather than abrupt cessation is recommended whenever possible. If intolerable symptoms occur following a decrease in the dose or upon discontinuation of treatment, then resuming the previously prescribed dose may be considered. Subsequently, the physician may continue decreasing the dose but at a more gradual rate. In clinical trials with Effexor XR, tapering was achieved by reducing the daily dose by 75 mg at 1 week intervals. Individualization of tapering may be necessary." (The above is from the insert that would come with the medication.) So, your doctor should have taken you off slowly from the Effexor while at the same time putting you on Remeron and building it up in your system. This way, by the time the Effexor was out of your system the Remeron would have been ready to do the job. Now, you are in the place where the Effexor is ending but the Remeron has to build up to a therapeutic level for it to be worthwhile. Not the best choice. Hope things improve -- if not call your doc and ask about going back on the Effexor so you can be properly weaned off it. Answered by Emilee Banther 3 months ago.
Both of those drugs are powerful. I have taken both before. Remeron made me sleep like crazy. I couldn't tolerate Effexor, and Remeron didn't help the depression. Sounds like you have some Remeron side-effects but also some Effexor withdrawal. That sounds like a difficult mid-stream horse change. Isn't experimenting with meds fun? Seriously, best of luck. Answered by Angelia Digiouanni 3 months ago.
I was on Mirtazapine for almost 2 years,originally 30mg then it was increased to 45mg (the maximum dose). For me, Mirtazapine was already working well for me, better than the other anti-depressant I was already on worked on it's own but I did notice furthur improvement when the dose was increased to 45. I did go through side effects when the dose was increased, people often do when their dose of anti-depresants is increased. Everyone is different though, you might not experience any furthur side effects at all. I went through the strong hunger pangs again and put on even more weight personally. With Mirtazapine, as the dose increases the sedative effect can actually decrease. Lower doses are more sedating. I dont know if this is a good or bad thing for you. Hope the increase of dose is helpful for you. Answered by Lavern Kurka 3 months ago.

You are supposed to be weened off of Effexor. My dad takes it and when they tried to change his meds on him he had alot of the same stuff happen to him. I would suggest giving it at least 3-5 days to let your body adjust if you are still having problems go back to your doc and tell him. You do have to realize though that it does take time for your body to adjust in any situation with those kinds of meds. Answered by Dorethea Fellezs 3 months ago.
switching medications or starting a new medication can cause a wide variety of side effects. Contact your psychiatrist and let them know what you are experiencing.

I am on day two of taking Remeron, generic name: mirtazapine. I have serious somnolence (a drowzy, groggy feeling). I was taking 1/2 the lowest dosage, and when I called my doctor to complain about the drowziness yesterday she told me to cut the pill again, so now I am taking 1/4 of the lowest dose! I am still terribly groggy. My doc said to give the medication a week and I might become immune to the drowziness... but I can't function. For those of you on Remeron, will my drowziness go away once the drug builds in my system, or should I just stop taking this now because it won't get any better? Answered by Jamel Paul 3 months ago.
I take Remeron (mirtazapine), and yes this is a common reaction and the drowsiness does decrease over time - it is a side-effect of the medication and your body does adjust. That is why you should take this medication just before going to bed - it is the best time to take it regardless. One of the reasons my Doctor chose Remeron was because I also suffer from insomnia; the medication does make you sleepy, so that was a plus for me in the beginning. But your body will adjust; it's only been two days and it will get better every day (and in my case it did very quickly), and later instead of feeling too sleepy, or sluggish, you will just feel calm - which makes it easier to sleep. Stay on the minimun dosage for as long as you need to (and your body should adjust quickly to such a low dosage; you will probably feel a difference after the first week). Remember this; everyone is different and everyone adjusts to any medication at their own pace. Also, as I mentioned above, starting at such a low dosage really shouldn't take your body too long to adjust - I would give it at least 2 to 3 weeks - just 2, if you notice a signicant difference. After that you should gradually increase the dosage, until you are at the level that you feel is the most beneficial for your condition. Again, the amount of your dosage is also an important factor in determining what works for you best. As I mentioned above, everyone is different and you may not require a very high dosage; the only way to find the correct dosage is to gradually increase it and stay at a particular dosage for a period of time. If you find that it is working for you at a certain dosage, then stay with that dosage. Just a note: I have tried many antidepressants over the years and have had trouble with so many of them, that I just stopped taking them. It really is a case of trial and error to find the right antidepressant, and the right dosage for your metabolism. I finally decided to give it one more try and after reviewing the ones I had tried in the past with my Doctor, he wanted me to try Remeron - and I am so glad I did. I finally found the right antidepressant for me - the side-effects at the beginning were mild and short-term (and they ALL have side-effects). I hope you have the same success. I wish you all the best - and please, give Remeron your best shot. EDIT: I just read Michele's post and she is totally corect: 1) about it being used as a sleep aid, which I addressed in my answer, and 2) about the weight gain - but I would like to be a little more specific about the weight gain. For the first year that I was on Remeron, I was on a low dosage and weight gain was not a problem. But later, I needed to have my dosage increased to a high level and I did gain a significant amount of weight. But I wasn't eating properly anyway, and craving a lot of sweets (remember we're talking about depression and unfortunately poor eating habits goes with the territory), but, the medication was working for me and because I was feeling better, that gave me the incentive to start eating a proper diet and to start exercising - which, in turn, made me feel even better. So the weight gain, at least in my case, turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I am at a good weight now, and for the first time in a long time, I actually feel healthy!

Many physicians use Remeron solely for that property (as a sleep aid for people who are depressed). You might be better off taking it in the evening instead of in the morning. In addition, this med is NOTORIOUS for weight gain. If you have weight concerns, you might want to keep your eye on that while you are taking this medication.

Asked by Tabatha Knollman 3 months ago.
Remeron is used for sleeping disorders as well as for mood elevation and stabilization, i.e. depression or mood swings. It is a psychotropic medication, all of which take approximately two weeks to reach a therapeutic level in the blood. The biggest problem with Remeron is weight gain but it does work. Hopefully the medication is being prescribed by either a psychiatrist or a doctor with some experience in the use of psychotropic medications. After two weeks if you sister does not feel the medication is working, she needs to go back to the doctor. Answered by Mike Nguen 3 months ago.

Can you take Remeron and Ultram?
My husband is on Remeron 15mg once a day. Can he take an Tramadol (Ultram) 50mg today for pain? Will they react? Educated answers only pls! Thanks -Lorah
Asked by Jospeh Briglia 3 months ago.
I tried Remeron briefly but had to stop due to very negative side effects. I am not an MD, so I probably don't fit into what you call an educated answerer. 15 mg of Remeron is a small dose, usually used when someone is starting the med. The upper limit for this med is usually 45 mg. I don't know know if your husband is taking immediate-release or extended-release Ultram, so I have pasted some info below. This question really belongs in the Medicine category, not the Alternative Medicine category. Your best bet is to talk to a pharmacist if you cannot reach your doctor. A pharmacist has almost as much medical training as an MD. Below is the Ultram info. ______________________________________... DOSING: The recommended dose of tramadol is 50-100 mg (immediate release tablets) every 4-6 hours as needed for pain. The maximum dose is 400 mg/day. To improve tolerance patients should be started at 25 mg/day, and doses may be increased by 25 mg every 3 days to reach 100 mg/day (25 mg 4 times daily). Thereafter, doses can be increased by 50 mg every 3 days to reach 200 mg day (50 mg 4 times daily). Tramadol may be taken with or without food. Recommended dose for extended release tablets is 100 mg daily which may be increased by 100 mg every 5 days but not to exceed 300 mg /day. Extended release tablets should be swallowed whole and not crushed or chewed. Answered by Eduardo Tassoni 3 months ago.

Remeron Generic Name: mirtazapine (mir TAH zah peen) Brand Names: Remeron, Remeron SolTab What is Remeron? Feedback for Remeron User Comments Avg User Rating 6 Comments 6.8 Rate it! Remeron is a tetracyclic antidepressant. It affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression. It is thought to increase the activity of norepinephrine and serotonin which help elevate mood. Remeron is used to treat major depressive disorder. Remeron may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide. What is the most important information I should know about Remeron? You may have thoughts about suicide when you first start taking an antidepressant, especially if you are younger than 24 years old. Your doctor will need to check you at regular visits for at least the first 12 weeks of treatment.

Do not use Remeron if you have used an MAO inhibitor within the past 14 days. Serious, life-threatening side effects can occur if you take Remeron before the MAO inhibitor has cleared from your body. Before taking Remeron, tell your doctor if you have bipolar disorder, liver or kidney disease, seizures, heart disease, a history of heart attack or stroke, or a history of drug abuse or suicidal thoughts.

Citalopram (Celexa), mirtazapine (Remeron) and bupropion (Wellbutrin) are three different antidepressant drugs... you use treatment refractory depression drug combination... Especially a SSRI plus mirtazapine combination is highly effective on depression and makes a remission (Complete relief of depressive sypmtoms, or just a normal mood for a long while). Especially venlafaxine (Effexor) + mirtazapine combination are too much effective to reach remission. But venlafaxine has not a big difference from SSRIs as action mechanism and Celexa+Remeron has same level effectiveness on depression. In daily practice responses these two drugs combination are incredible... just one point, i think you need a dosage manegament...

Wellbutrin has completely different effect mechanism on ... More important thing that it is to increase dosages... Three dopaminergic system...

Asked by Lynn Weltha 3 months ago.
So Remeron's main unique side effects include getting very sleepy and weight gain. (This is why it's gained a lot of popularity for cancer patients who have depression--it helps them rest and it keeps them from losing weight while on chemo.) If you're having too much trouble with sedation at night, most of the other antidepressants are less sedating than Remeron. It probably does get somewhat better but it's one of the most sedating antidepressants out there. Other choices that may give you some more energy may be Prozac, Zoloft, Wellbutrin, or Effexor. Because of the boost in energy associated with these meds, it is recommended that you take them in the morning so that you're not kept up at night. My one disclaimer is that everyone's body is different. The drug that makes everyone else go to sleep may still keep you up. So in that sense, it is trial and error. Good luck! Answered by Ulrike Mihelic 3 months ago.
I can understand where you are coming from. I took Remeron to help to sleep nightly. The draw back from me, is that it causes weight gain. Is that what you are taking it for?
