Hi, I have always taken remeron at night so I have not had issues with being tired during the day. And I started very slowly, 15 mg for about the first 4 months then went up to 30 then 45, the highest dose. I am back to 30 and hope that my next pysh appointment in Nov. I will be able to go down to 15 mg again. One problem with these meds is that they increase your appetite and I have gained quite a bit of weight which I really need to lose. Also I have ativan for anxiety to that is a big help. Remeron is the only med out of many I tried that helped my depression. Hope this helps you.
I want to add, I posted about how terribly lonely i am most of the time. I feel that my loneliness is different than the depression I have had. I have a hard time coping with being so alone but I can't say that I am feeling the depression. It is a hard thing to describe. Does the depression cause the loneliness or is the loneliness a symptom itself. When I am out and about with people the loneliness goes away and I don't feel at all depressed. So I can't really say if one causes the other. Just wanted to explain the situation.
