Haven't officially been diagnosed with bipolar,(however Doc is tryting to r/o, family hx. of) but I definately experienced an anxious, dysphoric high after taking Remeron, 45mg during the 2nd and 3rd week of treatment. 4th week my Doc added Zoloft. still don't feel normal.

Have had some scary times over the last 9 days at 30mg. I suppose the solution is a no-brainer, reduce the Remeron. Just took a little Klonopin to see if that settles things down. Had to fire the new pdoc today - she insists cognative therapy is the answer, good lord, I have a daughter older than she is.

> Hi,
> I am BPII and became VERY hostile while taking Remeron. I have speculated here before about what *mechanism* may have caused it (alpha-2 adrenoreceptor antagonism), but bottom-line I can't take the stuff. Even tiny doses. I think pdocs prescribe to bipolars a lot because it is so good for sleep. Remeron, Buspar, Effexor, and prednisone are the four meds (out of dozens) that I have tried that have made me the most angry and hostile (I nearly lost my job each time on all of those). If I increased the Remeron from 7.5 to 15.0 mg I got *sleep disturbances*.
