I don't think I have BP, but if you remember I was having problems with needing to periodically up my dose of remeron to maintain AD response. I think I finally realized I was getting depressed exactly at the end of each quarter because 1. school takes alot out of you, and 2. I was taking ritalin daily at the end of each quarter, then abruptly discontinuing it when I went on break, inducing a withdrawl related depression.
With that said, since you asked about remeron, it's has been a wonder drug for me. I tried just about every AD out there (at least the newer ones) and nothing ever worked. Remeron really makes me feel normal again. My biggest complaints are the sedation (I literally hit snooze for up to 2 hrs every morning), though I always wake up in time to get to class in time; and the appetite/weight gain issue. I am constantly struggling to keep my caloric intake down & though I'm at a normal weight now, I want to lose a few pounds for summer, and know it's highly unlikely on remeron. I say try it, expect to be a little foggy the first few days, but it might work out for you. I love it, I just wish they could find a way to get rid of the appetite problem. I don't know how this would differ for BP, but for a tx resistant chronic depressive it sure did the trick.
