Hi Getting There,
I took remeron and it did the same thing to me. It made me very sleepy. Maybe you should ask the doctor for something else or see if the tiredness goes away. I was falling asleep driving so I quit taking it. I may not have given it a chance.
You sign up for disability through the social security administration. You can find it on the internet. It takes a long time sometimes so don't get discouraged. And you can get turned down many times, so don't give up. Just keep pushing.
I wish you the best.
Luv and hygs,
fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, clinically depressed and allergies
