Paxil then Remeron not working out.

Posted by Iowagirl on March 12, 2000, at 22:53:15

I was on Paxil for five weeks for depression but I had constant trouble with insomnia and other side effects such as clenching my jaw often. The doc prescribed Remeron. I started on 30mgs and was knocked out instantly the first night. The second night I couldn't sleep and took .5mg of lorazepam. I slept but was totally knocked out the next day. Along with that I was incredibly hungry! Devoured a whole loaf of bread in two days! The third night I couldn't sleep at all, felt manic, had crying spells. I called the doc and she said to up the dosage to 45mg. Ever since I feel basically drunk. I have crying spells, feel manic, I feel exhausted. I can't sleep at night but when I do sleep I linger in this dream state. I have the wildest dreams and feel completely exhausted from them.
This being the day before a hectic week at work I can't play with dosages so I've decided to not take anymore. I don't know whether I should go back to the paxil and try to take the lorazepam at night or just not take anything and deal with the effects of the depression.
