i will be going back to california today. i won't see my dogs until tomorrow and ive been missing them terribly. ive had a tough week with starting on the remeron and getting really rage-y and violent but will be seeing my social worker tomorrow and my pdoc on tuesday, so hopefully stuff gets figured out (again). im just starting on the med-go-round (this is my 2nd round) and i AM not having fun with it... i am praying that this new doc (he is going to be my permanent one for now) can fix my meds so i get evened out. i wa on celexa and trazodone and that helped but it added a lot of anxiety. on the remeron i am so down i don't even want to do anything, and the feeling of loneliness got so strong.

Thank you Kitt... I'm still at the airport! I can't wait to get home. I think what really got to me this week is just not being in my regular environment, i lost a sense of control. I hope you had a good week, and thank you thank you again for the support.

Hi again Eli, just saw this post.  What time of day are you taking your remeron?  You should take it at night as it causes drowsiness.  As I said in the other posts stick with it because it really does have the fewest side effects.  And you also need to get up to full dose.  Often being out of our comfortable environment can cause bad feelings, especially if you weren't somewhere you wanted to be.  Also, I so understand about missing your dogs.  I am going to my son's for Thanksgiving and the thought of leaviing my sweet poodle has me down.  I had another poodle that I had to have put to sleep about a month ago so I guess I am putting in so much more emotion in this dog.  I do have a dog walker coming in that day for 2 times, to walk him and feed him, but I know I will be thinking about him all day.  He is so sad when I leave the house.  Any way try to stick with the meds, hope your dr. can help you and do have a happy Thanksgivng.

I know how you feel with the whole changing medication thing as i am going through a lot of changes with my meds at the moment and it does affect your system. I think it is really important that you are able to see the same doctor so that he/she can monitor your progress. Give the Remeron time to get into your system i was on 45mg and i took this about 1hr before i went to bed as they can make you tired. I hope you start to feel better soon and that the remeron works well for you.
