I do Okay on Remeron as you do also. In regards to the sexual dysfunction, this was not a libido issue, it was strictly a common side effect for males on NRIs that may be caused by stimulation of a particular noradrenaline receptor. There are medicines that may antidote this (like Flomax). Also it may just go away (I was only on the med for 3 weeks).

Well I am a girl so I never really know for sure if low-libido is a consequence of the meds I'm taking or whether I'm just not in the mood because of the depression.

Thanks ,I don't remember Zoloft very fondly and I doubt I would ever go back on it. I am feeling kind of blah but one thing I haven't done is to try cutting down on the Klonopin. I think that might also help with the hypersomnia but I am afraid of the anxiety coming back. Anyhow, thanks a lot for your help and good luck to you too.
