Hello and Welcome to HealingWell. I am Kitt and I look forward to getting to know you.
Great input from Ben. The CBT is awesome and works for so many.
As for meds, my psychiatrist had Remeron saved as a last ditch med and I never got to the point where I felt I wanted to take this drug. The SSRIs and SSNIs caused weight gain which only made me feel more anxious and depressed. This is what I have read on Remeron.
If serotonin and/or norepinephrine are the answer for you, Remeron will pull you out of the deepest, blackest depression like no other medication will. On the down side You will literally eat sugar straight out of the bag to satisfy your cravings for sweets and carbohydrates.
Therefore this is not the drug for me but I hope it works for you and remember I am not a professional.
Again a warm welcome.
