I'm on Remeron (Mirtazapine as it's know over here in the UK)
I'm on the highest dose, and notcie less of the effects now I'm at the higher dose of 45mg. I do gain weight on it though, as it gives me an apetite, though I do no excercise really, and nothing to burn off fat. Think before I started taking it, I didn't eat so didn't have any fat too burn off. I also find my sex drive higher now, which seems odd. I guess before I was just that depressed, that the bi of a mod lift I get from Remeron works magic.
On the lower doses of 15mg and 30mg, I found that the sleeping side effects worked better, but the higher dose is still the best for me.
I've only tried one other AD before this one, though didn't deal well with it. Remeron is my super drug.
Good luck with it, and hope it works for you.
Oh just too say, was on it 6 months, off it 6 months, now been back on it a year. I can definately tell the difference, as can others around me.
