I found a website for the drug company that makes Remeron (Mirtazapine).  I am a bit nervous, because I am now on the highest dose they make (45mg) and want to know what I will do if the 45mg poops out on me.  This is the only medication that has worked for me.  I tried all the SSRI's and had terrible side effects, and felt like a zombie, as my emotions were dulled.  I e-mailed them to see if they make a similar antidepressant like Remeron..I have researched everywhere..and have been unable to find anything similar (NASSa - Tetracyclic) to Remeron that has been made.  I found a company called Organon that makes the medication and someone from their customer service or lab department asked if they could have my phone number so they could contact me..I have never heard anything back from them.  I have thought about calling their 1-800 number..but I am not sure how to ask the question..if they make anything similar to Remeron.  Has anyone ever called the drug company that makes their med for questions?

I called the company that makes Lyrica because I was having blood in my urine and wanted to know if others had reported that side effect. 1 in 1000, the lady said. Turns out the blood was not from the medication as my dr. found a UT infection. I'd have no qualms about asking any questions . . . and also reporting that you ever got an email response. ((hugs))

Rianna,  I take an injection for Multiple Sclerosis.  The company who makes it often calls to check up on their patients.  I too have called them several times with questions and concerns.  So dont feel funny about calling if you have a question.

Thanks to everyone who responded. They e-mailed me back, and said at the time, they do not make anything similar to Remeron, but that they are working on new antidepressants.
