I've been taking remeron for about 9 months. I really like it. It DOES make you crave carbs and sweets, and i did gain about 15-20 pounds. The good news is, i lost almost all of it by eating better (i had to cut out the fatty and fried foods I was eating everyday -- thats bad for me anyways). It did help me sleep a lot at first, but now its to a lesser degree, but still helps for sure. I was on Zoloft before, and i really do like this drug better. I feel more present :) And there are no sexual side effects.
If tonight is your first time taking it, expect it to kick your butt either tonight or tomorrow night. And keep in mind the sedation will become less over time. Some people it effects more than others. I was fine on it.
Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Depression, possibly Bipolar 2.
