> Does anybody have anything comments on Remeron withdrawl experiences? I took Effexor for over a year, and that withdrawl was something I will, of course, never forget. There is always dicussions of Effexor withdrawl on this board as a matter of fact, but I have really noticed it for Remeron. I would have thought Remeron would have withdrawl problems though being that it has norepinephrine components to it. Also, does Remeron act on domapamine at all? Lastly, what kind of average percentage body weights increases are people stabilizing at after being on a stable dose for an extended period of time. E.g., 20% increase in body weight after taking stable therapeutic dose for a minimum of 1yr?

Hi Bob,
I was on Remeron for almost two years. I can share my comments with you.

My withdrawals were mild and consisted of heartburn, lack of appetite, and difficulty falling asleep. The gut symptoms cleared up in three days. Another sedating med (Zyprexa) provided much better sleep than Remeron ever did.

If Remeron has any effect on dopamine at all, it is probably indirect and very slight.

I did not gain weight on Remeron.

I did not experience increased drive or energy with Remeron. Those were the primary symptoms I was trying to fix. Remeron didn't do the trick. It didn't make me numb and apathetic like SSRIs did, but still it did nothing for motivation, for me.

I have found the combination of Prozac+Zyprexa+Adrafinil to be miraculous.
