Questions about Remeron and Bipolar illness

Posted by loosmrbls on May 11, 2001, at 8:19:12

This is my first time asking a question on this board, although I have responded to a few questions on here before.

About two years ago, I was diagnosed wtih double depression and started on SSRI's. I tried several AD's (Prozac, Wellbutrin, Effexor, Celexa) but they either didn't work or made things worse.

Recently, I was diagnosed as Bipolar II and after a poor response to lithium, had a partial response to Depokote. Mood swings are less frequent and less severe, but baseline mood is low -- as is my drive and energy. I tried Zoloft while on depakote with no help (three weeks worth). I am now on Depakote and Lithium combined, and no real improvement (although only a few days into it).

My doctor is thinking about depakote and Remeron. Since all other AD's have not worked, I am kind of hesitant to start this one, especially since it is sedating and increases appetite.

Has anyone had a good response to it for a long time when other AD's have failed?
